Miley Cyrus Hit With Backlash After Telling Women You 'Don't Have To Be Gay' If You Find A 'Good' Man

Miley Cyrus is in hot water after blaming male jerks for making her gay.

But even though the 26-year-old pansexual singer who came out as gender fluid in 2015 is an ally for the LGBTQ community, her comment rubbed fans the wrong way.


During a livestream on Instagram with her current beau, Cody Simpson, Cyrus implied that women don't have to be gay because there are "good men out there."

After gushing about her new relationship with Simpson, Cyrus talked about previously "not allowing anyone in" because of her "hardcore feminist vibes."

"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?"

Simpson, 22, could be seen below in the split screen, laughing at her advice for young women.

Cyrus added:

"I always thought I had to be gay because I thought all guys were evil, but it's not true. There are good people out there that just happen to have d***s. I've only ever met one, and he's on this live."

Her controversial comment about her sexuality comes at the 11:00 mark.

Her musing is alleged to be a latent dig towards ex-husband Liam Hemsworth, who reportedly filed for their divorce in August, citing irreconcilable differences.

Her queer fans felt betrayed by the LGBTQ advocate and bristled at her insensitive comment.





Fans continued expressing their disappointment, especially after Cyrus made inroads with the LGBTQ+ community by founding the Happy Hippie Foundation—a nonprofit which aims to "fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBTQ youth and other vulnerable populations."







The "Wrecking Ball" singer went on damage control from the backlash and explained herself on Twitter.

"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."

Not everyone embraced her apology, however.

Cyrus discussed her "complex" sexuality and marriage to Hemsworth with Elle, after the pair exchanged vows in a private ceremony on December 23, 2018.

In it, Cyrus erased heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality by declaring everyone is pansexual.

"We're redefining, to be f*****g frank, what it looks like for someone that's a queer person like myself to be in a hetero relationship."
"A big part of my pride and my identity is being a queer person. What I preach is: People fall in love with people, not gender, not looks, not whatever."
"Relationships and partnerships in a new generation—I don't think they have so much to do with sexuality or gender. Sex is actually a small part, and gender is a very small, almost irrelevant part of relationships."

After separating from Hemsworth, Cyrus began dating Kaitlynn Carter—Brody Jenner's ex-wife—in August but called it quits in September. The two remain friends.

A month later, Cyrus and Simpson announced they were in a committed relationship.
