Commenters have responded saying that the photo humiliates Sweetin, who has struggled with drug abuse in the past.

Miley Cyrus' latest Instagram pic has some people upset, and she's not even in it. 

The 23-year-old singer recently posted an old photo of "Fuller House" actress Jodie Sweetin, who's pictured straddling ex-husband Cody Herpin with a blurred-out face as she holds a cigarette. The photo, which the pop star captioned, "Current Mood #fullerhouse," is a throwback to Sweetin's partying days. 

Many commenters have criticized Cyrus for sharing the pic, saying that it humiliates Sweetin, who has struggled with drug abuse in the past.

Neither Cyrus nor Sweetin have commented on the photo since it was posted, but we have reached out to reps for both stars and will update this post if we hear back. 

Sweetin has opened up about her past with addiction on multiple occasions and wrote about her experience in her memoir, unSweetined. Now five years sober, the actress is mother to two girls. Before she decided to reprise her role as Stephanie Tanner on Netflix's "Full House" reboot, she was working as a clinical logistics coordinator for a drug facility in Los Angeles

Earlier this year, Sweetin spoke to People about her past, saying, "I speak about my experience growing up in the entertainment business, what my life was like after, some of the struggles and things I went through and where my life is today." 

"It's a story with a message of second chances and turning things around and being able to overcome some adversity," she added.

UPDATE : On Tuesday, Sweetin responded to the photo, telling E!, "I don't pay attention to negative stuff. I have so much good stuff going on in my life right now that I try not to pay attention." 

Cyrus also appears to have changed her caption, hitting back at fans who called her out for shaming. 

"Only you freaks take this as shaming!" she wrote. "To me it looks like Stephanie is having a fucking gay ol time!"
