Miley Cyrus Claps Back at Critics of Her 'White American Man' Comment Following Texas Shooting


Responding to the criticism about her reaction to the Texas shooting, the 'Younger Now' songstress says that she can't believe how defensive and in denial America is.
Miley Cyrus has responded to criticism of her initial reaction to the mass church shooting on November 5 in Texas, which killed 28 people and injured more than 20 people. Following the news, Miley took to Instagram to express how she felt about the incident, saying that it broke her heart.

"This isn't fair, this isn't right, this isn't just human! This is a TERRORIST ACT by a WHITE AMERICAN MAN!" she wrote. "I am heartbroken and embarassed. Mortified by our country and its s***ty system, lack of control/laws! This does NOT HAVE or NEED to happen! It's devastatingly disgusting!"

She then continued by referring to her track, "Bad Mood", remarking that she wrote the song in order to bring awareness to people. "This exactly why the lyrics of Bad Mood were so important for me to share on a major platform," she added. "I wanted to bring awareness to the fact that everyday we are waking up to more terrifyingly painful information that makes it nearly impossible to feel optimistic that things are going to change!"

Concluding her post, she wished that people would realize that gun violence has to be stopped. "I continue to be hopeful that enough is enough and the eyes of the ignorant will open and realize that (gun) VIOLENCE has to stop!" she wrote.

My dreams have become nightmares & those nightmares , reality ... This isn't fair , this isn't right , this isn't just , this isn't human! This is a TERRORIST act by a WHITE AMERICAN MAN! I am heartbroken & embarrassed. Mortified by our country & its shitty system , lack of control/laws! This does NOT HAVE or NEED to happen! It's devastatingly disgusting! This is exactly why the lyrics of Bad Mood were so important for me to share on a major platform. I wanted to bring awareness to the fact that everyday we are waking up to more terrifyingly painful information that makes it nearly impossible to feel optimistic that things are going to change! They say it gets worst before it gets better in some cases & I wish on every star that this is the worst of it! I continue to be hopeful that enough is enough and the eyes of the ignorant will open and realize that (gun) VIOLENCE has to stop! This assholes Facebook profile photo was a fucking riffle !

While some fans commented on her post by saying that they agreed and admired her for sharing her feeling on Instagram, others argued that gun laws were not the issue and slammed her for saying that white American man was responsible for the attack.

Seeing the astounding criticism that she got, Miley then wrote another post in response to the critics, saying that she couldn't believe how defensive and in denial America is. "I am aghast by the reaction of my latest post," she wrote. "It is completely amazing to me how defensive and in denial this country really is! You are not focused on the horrific tragedy I addressed but more angered that I am putting a BIG bright spotlight on the fact that it was a 'WHITE AMERICAN MALE' terrorist that walked in and killed 26 people (including children) leaving 20 severely injured!"

The 24-year-old singer also slammed Donald Trump for saying that the focus should be on mental health. "I'd like to believe that EVERY person who takes the life of another being is 'mentally ill'... It's hard to conceptualize that a sane human could commit such a hideous crime. BUT I am sorry Donald Trump this absolutely is a 'GUNS SITUATION,' " she wrote.

I'd like to believe that EVERY person who takes the life of another being is " mentally ill " .... it's hard to conceptualize that a sane human could commit such a hideous crime. BUT I am sorry Donald Trump this absolutely is a " GUNS SITUATION" I am aghast by the reaction of my latest post , it is completely amazing to me how defensive and in denial this country really is! You are not focused on the horrific tragedy I addressed but more angered that I am putting a BIG bright spotlight on the fact it was a "WHITE AMERICAN MALE" terrorist that walked in & killed 26 people (including children) leaving 20 severely injured ! All of a sudden .... " we are all equal " "human is human" "skin color doesn't matter " (NOW neither does gender) "makes no difference if they were male or female" ...... BUT those things absolutely matter when ... someone completely legitimate is running for president (versus someone who isn't) , when a car runs over innocent people while professing their love to a GOD different from yours , it sure matters to the cops when they beat or even kill innocent people of color , it even matters at the airport/on an airplane or in immigration when folks are completely profiled & judged for their background . NOW it doesn't matter if someone is a man or woman? Well that's news to me and the HH foundation because it's been years of fighting for gender equality and the right to be the sex you identify with or marry the one you love! There has ALWAYS been an issue with these subjects until NOW. So since this tragedy has occurred (coming off the cusp of Vegas, another terroristic act by a white American male) DONT START to be all innocent! Gender , race , & religion HAS and continues to matter for all the wrong reasons & that's only the beginning of how backwards this country is! All of you are so focused on protecting yourself, you've completely forgotten that you're not the only one that has to live in this country or on this planet! Aren't you exhausted? Because to be honest I am fucking sick and tired of starting everyday with tears and in mourning! Let's unite! Trump never needed to build a wall for us , we've done it ourselves! Love!
