Cassi Van Den Dungen is undoubtedly a beautiful model, but the Aussie native is lashing out at criticism that she needs to gain weight.

In an Instagram post showing an extremely skinny topless woman with protruding ribs (who is not the model herself), the 21-year-old explains how she's sick of being called anorexic and slams people for criticizing her shape.

"I think a lot of overweight girls are hypocrites. I'm naturally tall and skinny, I eat what I want, I don't starve myself, and I am beautiful," the post read.

"So why are you allowed to love your 'curves' but it's wrong for me to love my 'bones'?"

It continued, "Why is it okay for you to call me anorexic, but horrible for me to call you fat? If you can tell me to 'gain weight', why can't I tell you to lose weight? If you can feel beautiful for being big, I can feel beautiful for being small. Get over it."

She also captioned the image, "Perfect! My thoughts exactly. This is the last post on this subject. #GetOverIt #IAmWhoIAmDealWithIt#WordsToThinkAbout #IDontTolerateBullying"

Van Den Dungen hit the runway at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Australia and received major attention for her slim frame.

The former Australia's Next Top Model contestant has also posted a slew of food pictures on her photo-sharing page, with hashtags like "#iamwhoiam" and "#dealwithit."
