Miley Cyrus this week tweeted a photo in support of the LGBT community.

In the photo, a blue-colored pin with the caption, “Homophobia IS A Social Disease” hangs on a woman's chest.

“My favorite accessory of the day. #stopspreadinghate,” Cyrus messaged to her nearly 6 million followers.

The photo attracted little attention, but previous tweets from the 19-year-old pop singer have generated plenty of controversy.

Last year, she chided GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum for his opposition to gay marriage.

Referring to Santorum's 2003 remarks in which he likened gay unions to “man on dog,” Cyrus messaged that Urban Outfitters had donated to Santorum's previous campaigns. “'IF WE ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE NEXT THING U KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING GOLD FISH' – Rick Santorum UO contributed $13,000 to this mans campaign.”

When a follower challenged Cyrus, the Hannah Montana star defended her stance.

“@MileyCyrus what happened to that Christian girl from TN with descent moral values and a lot of heart?” the follower messaged.

“what an ignorant statement. I don't have 'alot of heart' cuz im not gonna be a closed minded hypocrite? LOVE IS LOVE. GOD IS LOVE,” Cyrus messaged back.

For his part, Santorum brushed aside the complaint, joking that he was holding out for Lindsay Lohan's endorsement.
