16-year-old Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen may really, really, really hate wearing pants, but she does have one love in her life— cancer sticks.

It’s no secret that the actress-turned-singer is a regular smoker, but it seems like she took the underage smoking too far by lighting up during her Pretty Reckless performance at a Sunday show in California! Momsen is currently 2 years from being legally able to buy/smoke cigarettes in California.

Officials at Britain’s Action on Smoking & Health (ASH) are blasting Momsen for setting a terrible example for her young fans.

“Clearly her act is designed to shock and smoking illegally on stage is part of that act. It is to be hoped that her fans have the maturity to see that her smoking is neither cool nor glamorous but a filthy, deadly addiction and a dumb thing to do.”
