    Hilary Duff has a message for a few of her social media critics.

    Kiss off.

    Duff sparked controversy earlier this week after she posted an innocent photo of her kissing her son on the lips Monday.

    Duff, donning Mickey Mouse ears, posted the photo taken at Disneyland with the caption "Happiest happiest happiest happiest happiest happiest happiest happiest place on earth! We love you @disneyland"

    But some began to chastise Duff in the comments section soon after, calling the photo inappropriate.

    But Duff didn't back down.

    She posted a photo Tuesday that read, "For anyone commenting that a kiss on the lips with my four year old is 'inappropriate' go ahead and click a quick unfollow with your warped minds and judgment."
