Some of Hale's followers didn't appreciate the comment about her body, with one fan writing: "Lucy Hale, fat? Are you kidding me??"
The 28-year-old actress later took down the photo and apologized for the remark. "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 tweeted. "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!"

Hale has changed her lifestyle in recent years. She told the online style publication Byrdie in April that she no longer drinks alcohol and parties, but instead goes to SoulCycle religiously.
"I’m just always trying to surround myself with better people and be the best version of myself possible," she said adding that she has "no interest" in partying any longer. "I go home, and my dad’s like, 'You L.A. hippie with your crystals and your SoulCycle!' I always used to make fun of those people, but now I think it’s just magic."
