Lady Gaga has been a major advocate for anti-bullying campaigns and LGBT rights.

But on Twitter Tuesday, the superstar found herself under fire after sending out a tweet to her 22.6 million followers that could be taken as a pro-anorexic statement.

"Just killed back to back spin classes. Eating a salad dreaming of a cheeseburger #PopSingersDontEat #IWasBornThisWay," the 26-year-old "Born This Way" singer posted.

Immediately the backlash started rolling in from the Twitter community, accusing the pop star of supporting eating disorders.

Added another Tweeter: "@ladygaga I'm stunned that you would promote such an unhealthy attitude towards food to your fans when you claim to be so righteous."
