Miley Cyrus Slams Anorexia Rumors

If you haven't already noticed, not only has Miley Cyrus been looking fierce, but she's also sporting a slimmed-down figure as of late.

Thanks to Pilates and a gluten-free diet, the former Hannah Montana star has seriously toned up and she's not afraid to show off that abtastic belly in a bevy of crop tops.

But after tweeting a photo on Sunday, haters harshed on Miley's slim-down, calling her anorexic and way too thin.

So, has the adorable babe and role model to thousands taken her weight war one step too far?

We think not. But first a quick recap of the sitch that sparked the hate:

Miley tweeted a photo of herself with a bag of Carl's Jr. on Sunday with the caption, "I can't eat it. So I'm just gonna smell the s--t out of it! My mouth is LITERALLY watering." Critics immediately took to Twitter, slamming Miley and calling her anorexic for denying herself the fast food since she's been looking so thin.

Miles quickly fired back, revealed she has a gluten allergy and insisted, "It's not about weight it's about health."

And while we're proud of Cyrus for sticking up to her haters, we're concerned with the obsession over Miley's frame.

'Cause this is hardly the first time Miles has jumped to her bod's defense. Back in November, critics slammed the Disney star for sporting a fuller figure—YouTube videos even surfaced with titles like "Miley Cyrus is 213 pounds."

Again, Miley took to Twitter insisting she loves herself and adores being shaped like a woman (we're sure BF Liam Hemsworth agrees). Not to mention, Miley is only 19 years old—an age where a woman's body is still developing, meaning fluctuation is not only expected it's downright natural for the young star.

So clearly, Miley can't win the Hollywood weight wars (even though she hasn't given up the fight), but we worry the insults are taking a toll on the fresh-faced beauty. After all, the Tinseltown pressure sent her Disney teen counterpart Demi Lovato straight to rehab for an eating disorder, cutting and self-esteem issues.

And although Miley has a strong support system with her fam and her loyal BF, we have to wonder how much pressure the gal can take in the spotlight.

Perhaps leaving Hollywood (as Miley recently threatened) is the only option left?

Let's seriously hope not—H'Wood wouldn't be the same without the silly Miley we love.

What say you Awful readers? How should Miley respond to the endless criticism? Do you think she's slimmed down too much?
