Okay, I’m going to, for the first time in the history of this site, defend Miley Cyrus. You can mark this down on your calendars.
She was recently snapped on the beaches in the Bahamas in a bikini, which caused the media to hurl negative criticisms of her body, and some even called her fat.
I can’t believe that some people would target her over something as stupid as her weight, she’s 16 for Christ’s sake!
Not that I like her music, at all, so don’t get me wrong. But I just think it’s wrong that people skewer her over the topic of her weight.
She says, “Talk all you want. I have my flaws. I’m a normal girl theres things about my body I would change but stop calling me fat in post. I dont even like the word. Those remarks that you hateful people use are fighting words. The ones that scar people and cause them to do damage to themselves or others.”
And I agree. Hollywood is so full of people trash talking each other and these young girls are getting the brunt of it. They try to look thinner and thinner because it’s the “in thing” to do. They could possibly end up anorexic because of it and it doesn’t help those that already have body issues.
She adds, “People that are so okay with being so hateful disgust me and need to spend last time on a gossip website and more time a. reading your bible b. reading stories/articles about what happens when cyber abuse and name calling happens. Kids hurt themselves.”
In closing her Twitter rant, she says, “This is not something to be taken lightly. I know these “message boards” are “no big deal’ to You but it is to the victim. This has got to stop!!! Oh and ps if your thighs don’t jiggle go see a doctor. Thanks.”
Agreed. And I couldn’t have said that better. But does that mean I’ll listen to her music at all? Nope.
