She may have recently been crowned the ‘World’s Sexiest Woman’ but model and actor Olivia Culpo, 27, isn’t immune to body-shaming trolls.

The former Miss Universe 2012 was forced to weigh into the comments on a photo she posted to Instagram on Wednesday after being accused of digitally editing her appearance.

Cruel words

“I’ve seen you in person... you aren’t this skinny. This is like 99.9% photoshopped,” slammed one person in the comments.

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model stepped in to defend the pic which shows her wearing blue jeans and a belly-baring crop-top emblazoned with the words ‘GRL PWR.’

“This is not a recent photo,” the brunette babe explained, adding, “My weight fluctuates because I’m human.”

“Maybe you should take a little advice from the shirt and try to work on your own self worth so you don’t have to bring others down. Just a thought :)” she hit back.

Olivia’s comment has been liked over a thousand times so far, and many of her 4.2 million Instagram fans have come out in support.

“You look great whatever weight,” said one, while another added, “You are special, don't let anyone put you down.”

Olivia topped Maxim magazine’s ‘World’s Sexiest Women’ list back in June, picking up the mantle from last year’s number one, fellow model Kate Upton.

She dated singer Nick Jonas for two years back in 2013, and also co-owns an Italian restaurant with her family in Rhode Island.
