"....and still [expletive] awesome," she retorted, adding a winking emoji.

Clarkson's response had received over 16,500 likes and 3,100 re-tweets as of Wednesday morning. Friends and fans voiced their support for the star in the comments.

"YES YOU ARE!" Twilight actress Ashley Greene tweeted with a heart emoji.

"SO AWESOME! LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU!" Young & Hungry actor Rex Lee added.

Clarkson told Redbook in 2015 that she isn't fazed by body-shamers.

"I don't obsess about my weight, which is probably one of the reasons why other people have such a problem with it," the singer told the magazine.

"There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism -- that is not me. I wish I had a better metabolism," she confessed. "But someone else probably wishes they could walk into a room and make friends with everyone like I can. You always want what someone else has."

Clarkson said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in December that motherhood has made her the most confident she's ever been as a woman. She shares 3-year-old daughter River and 14-month-old son Remy with husband Brandon Blackstock.
