Miley Cyrus has literally never apologized for anything in her life, and I don’t get why everybody is acting so surprised now.
A few years back, she and a friend (whose name escapes me) made some video mocking Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. When an interviewer brought it up, she ‘apologized’ by saying that ‘imitation is the highest form of flattery’ although never actually apologized to Demi nor Selena for what she said. That video is still online today, I believe.
She’s used transphobic slurs (tr*nny) and, to the best of my knowledge, has not apologized for them.
She was incredibly rude to Sinead O’Connor, despite O’Connor’s writing of a very mature, public, and kind open letter to her. She mocked mental illness in order to ‘prove a point’ against Sinead.
She’s been called out on use of black people and little people as props in her performances, and has yet to apologize for that either.
She mocked Demi Lovato’s coke addiction, despite the fact that Demi was one of her best friends at the time.
she literally has a tattoo of a dream catcher. if that’s not appropriating native american culture then i don’t know what the fuck is.
Even at the VMAs she was using AAVE and wearing ‘locs’
Every time an issue is raised with her, she cries ‘feminism’ and says that she should be allowed to do whatever it is that she likes because she’s a ‘young woman’ and it was hard growing up in the limelight. You can’t have it both ways. You can’t be exempt from saying things because you’re a female and because you support gay rights. Shit doesn’t work like that.
So go Nicki Minaj, for putting her in her place.
Miley Cyrus is racist trash, and it’s no longer a case of ‘oh she doesn’t know’ or ‘oh you’re just trying to put her down!’ or ‘that’s not very feminist of you; hating on another female.’
There’s a very, very, very big difference between attacking another female for no reason, and calling someone out on their shit. I’m sick of Miley Cyrus getting away with whatever she wants, just because she’s ‘famous’ or whatever. And she’ll say this is to boost record sales or that it’s a good marketing ploy; stop offending people just to get money out of it for fucks sake.
