Burke posted a photo of herself on her Facebook page Monday and she was flooded with commented criticizing her for losing too much weight and no longer looking like herself.

"You getting to thin," said one commenter. Another said, "This don't look like you .but you are still beautiful lady and can dance your little butt off." One said, "You look great except you are losing way to much weight.."

Another commenter criticized another feature, asking, "What the heck happened to your lips???"

Burke was quick to respond to several of these comments, saying "I haven't lost any more weight!" and "I'm just pouting, geez!"

Burke also spoke with TMZ amid the criticism, noting, "I didn't have plastic surgery and I don't have an eating disorder. I'm just actually happy."

For all the Facebook commenters who criticized her, there were many who also leapt to her defense.

"Ok people. She posted a nice pic on FB," one said. "That's not an invite to weight critique. Unless of course, all of us are welcome to tell all of you that you need to gain/lose a few pounds. Seriously, when did this become acceptable?!"

Burke has previously battled critics who believed she has lost too much weight over the past year. The dancer went from 135 lbs. last year to 120 this year. She has also dealt with critics blasting her for putting on a few pounds over the years.

Burke will presumably be back for the upcoming fall season of Dancing With the Stars. She was partnered with TV host and comedian Drew Carey in Season 18 this spring. They came in eighth place overall.

Dancing With the Stars Season 19 is set to premiere in the fall on ABC, though the network has not yet announced a specific air date for the long-running reality show yet. It will be returning in its regular Mondays at 8 p.m. timeslot.
