More and more people - celebrities included -  are sending one very important message: Cyberbullying is not OK. That was the case with Selena Gomez's beautiful rebuttal to a rude commenter who left a hurtful comment on her Instagram account.

The bully, who has since deleted her comment, wrote an offensive comment about cancer. Here's how Selena responded.

selenagomez: left a comment on your photo: The comment you left about cancer was absurd. How distasteful of a young woman. I have gone through that battle with fans and family members. You can dislike someone but to wish something that could happen to you or your family is uncalled for sweetheart. You won't be winning 'anyone's' heart that way. Trust me. Educate yourself a tad more. God bless love. Be an amazing woman. You're beautiful.

Cyberbullies thrive in the comment sections on many websites. Their rude comments often go ignored by most commentators, and only hurt their intended target.

Luckily, Gomez caught this troll in the act. She faced cyberbullying head on, and her fans stand with her. Good on you, Selena!
