"Miley's Bun" Boasts 22,000 Followers

On Monday morning, Miley Cyrus was the talk of Twitter -- her hair, that is. The former Disney star's decision to chop her once long, auburn locks appears to be more polarizing than her engagement at age 19 to actor Liam Hemsworth.

Miley Cyrus haircut

Miley Cyrus spawned "Pixiegate 2012" after posting photos of her new 'do Monday morning -- to both the adulation and the hate of millions of followers on Twitter.

In fact, the most-talked-about cut spurred its own Twitter account, "Miley's bun," which had an unbelievable 22,900-some followers as of Monday morning.

"Miley's bun" pays homage to Instagram photos documenting the minutes leading up to the final cut, featuring the ex-Disney star's locks piled on top of her head before stylist Chris McMillan lopped it all off.

Tweeps went into freak-out mode before the locks got gone.

"OMG MILEY NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO," and "FOR THE LOVE OF JESUS NO," represent some of the most horrified tweets (you can always tell the level of horror by the number of extra "O's" in "No" and over-use of the caps lock).

After the deed was done, the hate ensued:

"Hahahahahahahahahahah. Miley Cyrus looks like she has a dead rat on her head. Death by bleaching, too."

"In case you missed it, Miley Cyrus butchered her hair this weekend so at least you're probably having a better Monday than her!"

Miley, who has inherited the Cyrus family's "Twitter TMI" gene, responded to the haters with: "my dad @billyraycyrus used to tell me "opinions are are like a** holes every body has one"

She went on to say, on more than once occasion, essentially the same thing: "LOVE my hair ... feel so happy, pretty, and free."

Her fans also contend that the newly engaged star gave her locks to a cancer charity.

Another fan also reminds us that, way back in 2008, Miley yearned to have a "short, blonde, Twiggy-style cut." Mission accomplished!

What do you think of Miley's drastically different look?

I absolutely LOVE Miley with her new hair style! We use our hair as a way to express ourselves and kudos to her for doing just that. I've always wanted a pixie myself but was afraid of what people would think of me until one morning I woke up and said to hell with it and went to the hair salon to get the hair of my dreams. I have zero regrets and feel amazing. She is still just as beautiful now as she has always been and people should be happy for her even if they don't like it whatsoever because she loves it.

I personally don't like it, I have no problem with chopping hair off but I think she should've done something less chunky but I doubt she regrets it.

How can you possibly say that. Do you know the girl? Do you guys talk regularly? Unless you do, you haven't the slightest idea whether she'll regret this. I shopped all my hair off, in a cut similar to hers a few years ago and it was an awesome, liberating experience. It's her freaking hair, just let it go....

Is this for real?! I cannot believe she did this! What a drastic change and doesn't match her style at all! She will regret this awful decision.
