Miley Cyrus has blasted internet bullies for branding her fat. The 16-year-old "Hannah Montana" star posted an angry tirade on her Twitter webpage insisting she is a "normal girl" after being criticized about her weight.
She wrote: "Talk all you want. I have my flaws. I'm a normal girl. There are things about my body I would change, but stop with calling me fat."
The angry singer-and-actress insisted online insults could allow situations to spiral out of control and warned "hateful people" should find something better to do with their time.
She added: "Those remarks that you hateful people use are fighting words. The ones that scar people and cause them to do damage to themselves or others."
"People that are so okay with being so hateful disgust me and need to spend less time on a gossip website and more time (a) reading your Bible (b) reading stories/articles about what happens when cyber abuse and name-calling happens. This has got to stop!!!"
The weight jibes stemmed from an earlier post made by Miley which read: "I just jiggled my thighs and they shook on their own for three mississippis no more late-night lucky charms."
Miley is no stranger to bullying after recently revealed her schooldays were made miserable by fellow pupils.
Writing in her new book 'Miley Cyrus: Miles To Go', she revealed: "The girls took it beyond normal bullying. These were big, tough girls. I was scrawny and short. They were fully capable of doing me bodily harm."
Miley claims her tormentors once locked her in the bathroom and also started a group called 'The Anti-Miley Cyrus Club'.
