Miley Cyrus Writes Passionate Call for Unity After Texas Shooting

Miley Cyrus has taken to social media to write a passionate call for unity and gun control in America following the devastating shooting at a Texas church.

“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 sh-tty system, lack of control/laws! This does NOT HAVE or NEED to happen! It’s devastatingly disgusting!” Miley wrote on Instagram.

Miley‘s post caused some controversy among fans after she called out the terrorist act “by a white American man.” She then defended her comments in another post.

“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!” she wrote.

Miley then shared a slideshow of photos of her dad Billy Ray Cyrus and brothers Braison and Trace. “Just a few of my favorite WHITE AMERICAN MALES …. I do NOT & refuse to generalize or stereotype!” she said.

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 ! "I don't know how much more it can take!" #FuckGuns #FuckViolence πŸš«πŸ’”πŸš«πŸ’” My love is with you TX!

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!

    Too bad Miley hasn’t been paying attention to what the authorities have been saying…that this was a domestic dispute situation. It’s also too bad that so many do not understand the definition of terrorism.

    She’s an idiot. She actually thinks people listen to what she says.

    shut up bytch!!!

  • me

    She’s the type of ignorant people that are creating racism . She’s making it sound like white American males are murderers . A murderer isn’t defined by his color the animal is defined by his acts. I thought she actually grew up after falling off the rails the last few years and learned to keep her repulsive mouth shut. I’d like to say that no one really listens to the dimwit, but she will incite hate with her mouth.POS

  • Gina

    What she’s actually saying is that white American men can be terrorists too, as opposed to the stereotype that only Middle Eastern men are terrorists.

  • quartzoup

    Lol she lives in a gated community, this isn’t “passion”, just a scared sheltered child having an online rant.

  • thecat61

    She’s absolutely right!

  • thecat61

    Have you seen a picture of someone who’s on meth…because sure as h*ll, they don’t look like her. Maybe you should look in the mirror.

  • FerCat

    Yeah I notice. When has ‘white American male’ ever been followed by a positive media comment lately?
    Yet somehow THAT is not racist.
