Fifth Harmony's Lauren has tweeted a fierce response to tabloid journalist Julia Hartley-Brewer, who accused the group of stripping off as "a cheap way to sell themselves".

"All forms deserve respect. They are no less empowered because of their clothing choices," she continued, "Don’t be salty they look [fire emoji]."

We're totally here for legends supporting legends and Mixers are loving Lauren's clap-back too.

Twitter user Dany replied: "I think what Little Mix did was powerful and IT IS empowerment. People think that young people don’t know anything, but we know that’s not true.What’s insulting is that they are saying they are selling themselves that’s f****** ridiculous."

Little Mix released their new, fifth album LM5 on Friday, with 'Strip' being one of the many, new tracks fans have been enjoying over the weekend, along with the lead single 'Woman Like Me'.
