Gwen Stefani is getting some negative reaction to a recent tweet.

The "No Doubt" singer posted a photo of herself as a teenager getting an autograph from Sting, along with the caption "Chunky me 1983."

The throwback came as Gwen was remembering her favorite Super Bowl moment, when she got to perform with the Police frontman at the halftime show in 2003.

But some fans aren't responding well to the singer referring to herself as overweight. One Twitter user wrote, "that's chunky? I hope no one bigger than a size 6, 8 is reading this," and another told the star, "too many girls and women look up to you for you to talk like that."

The 44-year-old singer and fashion designer is currently pregnant with her third child with husband Gavin Rossdale.
