Miley Cyrus Is Under Fire for Saying "You Don't Have to Be Gay" on Instagram Live
Some fans also think she shaded Liam Hemsworth.
UPDATED, Oct. 21 at 5:30 p.m.: Cyrus clarified her comments in a tweet on Monday, writing, "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."
Miley Cyrus's comments during her latest Instagram live are garnering backlash.
On Sunday night, she and new boyfriend Cody Simpson did a joint Instagram live session, during which they discussed their connection to each other.
"Guys, I was being a little too, like…hard core feminist vibes and, just like, I don't know, not allowing anyone in, but now I am," Cyrus 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—ks out there. You just gotta find them. You gotta find a d—k that's not a d—k, you know what I mean?"
After the session, people began calling out the comment "you don't have to be gay," which carried the implication that being gay is a choice.
Some also thought she was throwing shade at ex-husband Liam Hemsworth when she said, "I always thought I had to be gay because I just thought, like, all guys were evil, but it’s not true. There are good people out there that just happen to have d—ks. I’ve only ever met one, but…and he’s on this live."
Hemsworth and Cyrus split up earlier this year after eight months of marriage and 10 years of on-and-off dating. She was subsequently linked to Kaitlynn Carter before becoming official with Simpson earlier this month, while Hemsworth has been linked to actress Maddison Brown.
