Miley Cyrus has been receiving a lot of attention lately, and not all of it is good.
The most recent one involves her on the receiving end of the LGBTQ community wrath after an Instagram live recording she did last Sunday (20th October, 2019), turned sour.
In the recording, “The party in the USA” singer said, “There are good men out there, guys, don’t give up. You don’t have to be gay, there are good people with d**s out there, you’ve just got to find them.”
She continued, “You’ve got to find a d**k that’s not a d**k, you know? I always thought I had to be gay, because I thought all guys were evil, but it’s not true. There are good people out there that just happen to have d**k. I’ve only ever met one, and he’s on this live.”

Backlash quickly filled up the comments section of the post. With many netizens pointed out that no one decides to be gay and that the reason people are LGBTQ is not because they couldn’t find a man who wasn’t a d**k. This led to the Cyrus’ response on Twitter.
“I was talking s–t about sucky guys, but let me be clear, YOU don’t CHOOSE your sexuality. You are born as you are. It has always been my priority to protect the LGBTQ community I am a part of. Happy Monday!” she wrote on Monday (21st October, 2019).
The response was not enough to quench the backlash as quite a few netizens still questioned her action on the entire Instagram Live situation. “I’ve lost so much respect for you. If you were truly apart of the LGBTQ community you would of never said those things. Your words were so hurtful!” one wrote on Twitter.
Not all responses she received were negative, as many of her fans have come out in defence of the former “Hannah Montana” star. “Hate that people have to create drama out of an amazing live stream I loved it so much thank you for sharing your happy mellow private home & music with us” one user wrote. “She doesn’t have to explain herself! It was a joke and she is allowed to speak freely as a human being.” another netizen added.
Whether you love or hate her, you can’t deny that the “Wrecking Ball” singer definitely is getting all the spotlight at the moment, whether she wants it or not.
