Was Karen Carpenter's death considered shocking?

Did people realize she had an eating disorder? Was it even generally known amongst the general public what "anorexia" or "bulimia" were back then? I see videos of her back then and I'm surprised that people weren't more shocked by her emaciated appearance on TV/interviews/concerts/etc. Yes, I realize people were generally thinner in the '70s, but she was Auschwitz skeletal.
