Ever since her highly sexualized performance at the MTV Music Video Awards Sunday night, singer Miley Cyrus has been the target of largely hostile attention on the Web, and it appears her friends have had enough.

One of the "We Can't Stop" singer's pals, Cheyne Thomas, reportedly engaged in a Twitter feud with "American Idol" alum Kelly Clarkson, 31, Monday after the singer tweeted about "pitchy strippers" following the televised awards show. According to a report from Radar Online, Clarkson was the first to attack via Twitter Monday saying, "Just saw a couple of performance from the VMAs last night. 2 words… #pitchystrippers."

Following her review, in which Clarkson never named a specific performer, Thomas responded on Twitter insulting the entertainer's appearance and music career. "Kelly Clarkson called Miley a pitchy stripper. Do you think she's mad because her past few singles flopped and wasn't asked to perform?" Thomas said. "And she's fat and 30…. the reasons Kelly Clarkson is biter [sic] could really go on for day [sic]."

While Clarkson was flamed by Cyrus' pal she apparently isn't the only one not a fan of the former Disney star's performance Sunday. Robin Thicke, whom Cyrus, 20, collaborated with on stage with his single "Blurred Lines," also allegedly complained about her risque dance moves during the show. According to a report from Us Weekly, the 36-year-old singer was disappointed with the performance. "Robin thought it would be fun to include Miley but he didn't realize how much she would overshadow him," said a source. "I don't think he would have done it knowing what it ended up like."
