Miley Cyrus has shown off a new tattoo, only for it to spark controversy.
The Hannah Montana star posted a picture of the newly inked equal sign on her ring finger on her Twitter account.
It was accompanied by the caption: "All love is equal."
But the new body art - thought to show her support for gay rights - soon ignited a discussion on the social networking site.
One follower questioned her about God's stance on homosexuality.
Miley replied: "Where does it say in the bible to judge others? Oh right. It doesn't. GOD is the only judge honey."
She later added: "Everyone is entitled to their opinions. If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for everything."
The inking is the 18-year-old's sixth tattoo.
She also sports a dream catcher on her torso, a heart and a small cross on her fingers, the word 'love' behind her ear and "just breathe" on her rib cage.
