Don’t call me fat.
How would you respond to taunts by strangers about your weight? Probably, you’d be mortified. And perhaps Miley Cyrus was. But then she got angry.
(We covered this story briefly yesterday in news but the response was so huge we wanted to go into a little more detail.)
“Pop superstar Miley Cyrus has shown off her body in music videos and racy photos, but lately, the 18-year-old singer and actress has been on a weight rollercoaster. Her fuller figure has some critics saying she’s lost control of her body.

With the picture, she wrote this:
Quick to show her support to Miley was 19 year old Disney star Demi Lovato, who has previously spoken about her battles with eating disorders and has also been called ‘fat’ by media, bloggers and anonymous online haters.
Demi tweeted these three replies:
Both young stars fielded thousands of positive replies on Twitter, with Miley replying to one of them with this:
“I don’t wanna be shaped like a girl I LOVE being shaped like a WOMAN & trust me ladies your man wont mind either ;)”
Here’s a gallery of said ‘fat’ Miley. FFS.
