Miley Cyrus is being dragged on social media for a post she shared Monday following Sunday’s Texas church shooting. After a man named Devin Kelley opened fire inside First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, killing 25 people and leaving 20 more injured, the “Malibu” songstress took to Instagram to highlight that the “terrorist act” was performed by a “WHITE AMERICAN MAN.” Watch the video below for more.
Fans were clearly divided by her comments. “Gun laws are not the issue!” one Instagram user argued. “Without guns, the shooter would probably still be alive and have killed a lot more people! But since there was a GOOD GUY WITH A GUN he was able to put a stop to the shooter! Drugs safe illegal, people still find a way to get them. Drinking and driving is illegal, people are dying every day because of it. Laws do not stop people.” Another said, “Thank you, Miley, for the passion and love you speak with not everyone will agree with you and that’s OK but the point is a discussion must be had and something must be done.”
In a follow-up post, the 24-year-old posted photos of her favorite white American males, including her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, and her brothers, Braison and Trace. “I do NOT & refuse to generalize or stereotype!” she captioned the pics. “You are all correct to believe every human deserves the same respect …. but please keep that in mind when you’re judging others. NOT just with the race , religion , gender , or sexuality which YOU identify with. Deal?” Her comments come on the heels of the NYC terrorist attack that left eight dead and 11 injured on Oct. 31.
