A celebrity throwback photo is causing a lot of controversy, but not because of its contents.
Gwen Stefani tweeted a vintage pic of herself getting an autograph from singer Sting and captioned it, "Chunky me 1983. getting @officialsting autograph backstage. cut to . . ."
In the pic, the teenager shows off her budding edgy style wearing a mohawk-inspired hairstyle that was long at the front and short at the sides and sports a yellow sweater, khaki shorts and white slingback flats.
But the mom's seemingly harsh critique of her body isn't sitting well with some of her fans.
@gwenstefani please don't call yourself chunky. Too many girls and women look up to you for you to talk like that.— Katharine (@kategoesboom) February 2, 2014
Yahoo! Shine even posted a story called "Gwen Stefani's Comments About Her "Chunky" Body Make Us Sad."
But not everyone was offended by the singer's comment.
Elle.com defended the No Doubt frontwoman's remarks, saying "Why is everyone so quick to criticize Gwen? I, for one, have certainly said the same sort of offhand comment when an old college photo of me bubbles up; I look like me but...puffier."
Others took to Twitter to support Gwen's words.
If Gwen Stefani feels she was chunky as a teen, then that's her opinion about her body. People get offended so easily.— michelle strait (@michelle_strait) February 4, 2014
If Gwen Stefani wants to call her 1983 self chunky she has every right to. Don't base your self worth on others. http://t.co/DPqfZQtg7V— CJ McMac (@Cynjja) February 4, 2014
What do you think? Are you offended by Gwen's comments or are they no big deal?
