Selena Gomez drew the line when someone posted a comment on her Instagram about cancer that didn't sit well with the singer. Reportedly, the user wished cancer on the 21-year-old actress.

The user, 'official.kerry', said she, or he, hoped the Disney alum would “burn in hell with cancer” among other nasty remarks.

The original comment has been deleted and the user's account has been deactivated, but the Spring Breakers actress still made a comment in response to the user's comment. It's unclear if she deleted the original comment or the user did, but she made her own pointed comment, took a screenshot of what she wrote to the user, and then posted it Sunday as a separate Instagram photo.

Gomez captioned the photo with, “Honestly, I don’t speak up much because it’s simply *always* taken out of context. But I don’t take bullying well. I have seen too much to not say anything.”

The Come and Get It singer knows a thing or two about bullying — by Bieber fans who never took to her on again-off again relationship with boyfriend Justin Bieber, and by media outlets accusing her of being an alleged drug addict or unstable in some way.

Speaking to New York’s Z100 radio station in March 2011, Gomez spoke about the pain that results from the bullying she has received.

“It’s hard. It hurts, it really does,” the singer said.”I don’t feel like I’m doing anything wrong. I’ve been best friends with him [Bieber] for a very long time. It does hurt my feelings a lot, but I try not to focus on it. I have a great family and great fans.
