Miley Cyrus has waded in the recent controversy hitting fashion store Urban Outfitters. After words spread out that the company has ripped off one of an independent jewelry designer's necklace lines, the former star of "Hannah Montana" took to Twitter to speak out her opinion about the retailer.

"Love that everybody is hating on Urban Outfitters," the 18-year-old first tweeted. In a following post, she pointed out why she has no tolerance for the retailer. "Not only do they steal from artists but every time you give them money you help finance a campaign against gay equality. #SHADYASHELL," so she wrote.

The songstress, who will be seen starring opposite Demi Moore in "LOL: Laughing Out Loud", continued on to show her support for gay rights. " 'IF WE ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE NEXT THING U KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING GOLD FISH' - Rick Santorum UO contributed $13,000 to this mans campaign," her tweet read.

Urban Outfitters was recently hit with accusation that the company has copied Stevie Koerner's necklace design. The independent artist wrote on her blog last Wednesday, May 25, "I'm very disappointed in Urban Outfitters. I know they have stolen designs from plenty of other artists. I understand that they are a business, but it's not cool to completely rip off an independent designer's work."

I've never respected Miley, never took her serious, until now. It's hard to believe that the place selling pro-Obama shirts and notebooks a couple years ago would be giving money to an arrogant ass. Of course, I can't find much info on the issue (as every relevant news article talks about Ms. Cyrus and her tweet), and Anthropologie is also to "blame." In other words, there's likely more to this story then what Miley can tell us, but it is a shame nonetheless. Perhaps the joke was on us all along.

No one likes gay people. They're sick animals that have to be put down. They deserve no rights in this country.
