    Well, this is probably one of the more bizarre controversies Lucy Hale will ever find herself in. Hale says she is sorry to anyone who got offended after she body-shamed... herself. 

    The 28-year-old "Pretty Little Liars" star posted on Twitter and Instagram this week a throwback pic of herself as a bridesmaid alongside her father as a Father's Day tribute and then drew criticism over a comment she made to a fan.

    "Ugh, I was so fat," she said.


    You taught me to have soul. I love you daddy.

    Many fans were not having it. Hale was bombarded with comments from fans, some of which expressed concern about her health.

    "@lucyhale fat? Are you kidding me??" tweeted user @ciaraferguson17.

    Others were annoyed that people were annoyed.

    "Jesus. People can't even say they're fat or feel fat without offending anyone," wrote user @missmcizzle.

    Hale disabled comments on her Instagram photo. She also later took to Twitter to apologize.

    "Sometimes I forget that people are watching everything I do and I say things I don't mean. I'm extremely sorry if my comment about my weight offended anyone," she wrote. "Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy. I know people look up to me and I should be way more aware of what I say sometimes. Thanks for all the love and support. Hope y'all can forgive me!"
