Way to go, Selena Gomez!

The 21-year-old pop star took to Instagram to combat bullies. After a "fan" posted a now-deleted comment about cancer, Gomez lashed out -- in the classiest way possible. 

"The comment you left about cancer was absurd," she wrote as a comment on the fan's Instagram page. "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."

Gomez posted the screenshot on her personal Instagram with the caption: "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 not to say anything."

Kudos to Gomez for standing up for herself... and all those who have struggled with cancer. 

We love that Gomez kept the message classy and sweet. What do you think of her comments?
