Absolutely not! Im not sure where you hear dthat but its a myth. Some people might say its "bad for you" because its bottled in plastic and the plastic matter will harm you but this is untrue. The plastic that bottles the water is made from special make up as not to cause any bodily harm. i wouldnt worry

Bottled water is not bad for you. In many places, the same water sent to your tap is put in bottles by the city or water district. The only people who need to be careful of bottled water are young children, since bottled water may not include fluoride, which they need to protect their teeth.

The idea is that it's worse for the environment than tap water would be. Bottled water doesn't hold any more nutritional value than tap water (other than a few insignificant minerals). However, the plastic bottles of bottled water takes up landfills and also use a lot of energy when recycled. Therefore, it is better to avoid them.

While bottled water isn't bad for you persay, the companies don't want you to know its really filtered tap water, it's the plastic that the bottle is made out of that is bad for you. Get an aluminum bottle to carry your water around in. The water won't absorb the plastic.
