Miley Cyrus Shuts Down Shamers

Back in August, the 26-year-old-superstar announced her split from ex-husband Liam Hemsworth. Shortly after, she appeared to be casually dating Kaitlynn Carter, a reality TV star, their relationship reportedly ended two weeks ago.

Backlash immediately followed her when the video of her kissing Simpson broke out, but this time she wasn’t silent about it. In an impassioned tweet to defend her dating habits, she doubles down on the standard she is subjected to.

“I know the public feels invested in my past relationship because they felt like they saw it thru from the beginning,” she wrote on Twitter. “But I am grown now and make choices as an adult knowing the truth/details/reality.”

“Men (especially successful ones) are RARELY slut shamed. They move on from one beautiful young woman to the next MOST times without consequence,” she continued. “I am just trying to THRIVE/survive in a ‘mans’ world …. if we can’t beat em, join em! If our president can ‘grab em by the p—y…’ can’t I just have a kiss and açaí bowl?!?!”

In a pointed response to critics who said she should be less public about her romances in consideration for Hemsworth’s feelings, Cyrus said she refused to shift what she wants in order to make people more comfortable.

“I refuse to recluse and ‘date’ from home cause A. That’s not fun B. Extremely uncomfortable / puts me in a vulnerable position,” she wrote. “I would like to share an activity with someone I am dating and not be stuck at home with pretty much nothing to do but ‘Netflix and chill.'”

Lastly, she appeals to her case by emphasizing she’s all new to the dating scene, and she’s still learning to navigate its waves, as well as being a young adult.

“This ‘dating’ thing is new to me too. I’ve never been an ‘adult’ / grown a** woman experiencing this …. I was in a committed relationship for almost All my teens and early 20s; with the exception of a few breaks, which usually in those times I was working my a** off with not much R&R…. and ‘meeting/ trusting’ people in my position is really tuff.”
