Miley Cyrus
is outraged by recent comments about her weight, and she's blasting her critics on Twitter.

Several media outlets have claimed Cyrus has packed on a few extra pounds. Recent photos do show the former Disney star with a slightly rounder face (the photo to the right is from two weeks ago), but certainly nothing excessive.

"By calling girls like me fat this is what you're doing to other people. I love MYSELF," the 18-year-old tweeted to her 3.5 million followers. The comment was posted with a picture of an emaciated woman (warning, graphic image).

Friend and fellow Disney star Demi Lovato was right there to defend Miley, “I love you, whoever called you that has it coming.” Lovato recently got out of rehab, which she entered due to, in part, body image issues.

Cyrus wasn’t backing down. She tweeted again, "I LOVE being shaped like a WOMAN & trust me ladies your man won't mind either."
