The "Slide Away" singer annoyed queer fans when she seemed to state during a live broadcast that her fans "need not be gay" if they meet good men.
As Miley Cyrus herself sang in the past, "Everyone makes mistakes." Now the singer is trying to take responsibility for one of her most recent mistakes.
On Sunday night, Cyrus hosted an Instagram live stream with his new flame, Cody Simpson, where he gave some watching fans advice that didn't go particularly well. "There are good men out there, guys. Don't give up. You don't have to be gay," she said. "There are good people with sticks out there. You just have to find them. You need to find a stick that isn't a stick, you know what I mean?"
She continued in her somewhat ironic speech, saying that she felt she had no choice but to be gay after a series of bad relationships. "I always thought I had to be gay because I thought all the guys were bad, but it's not true," she said. "There are good people out there who end up having sticks. I only met one."
Cyrus' LGBTQ fans were not very kind to her comments, saying she sounded like weird women, in fact, not weird, but simply "decided" to be, because they didn't find the right man to make them straight.
In response, Cyrus posted a new statement on Twitter, where he returned his comments and made an important clarification. "I was talking shit about rogue guys, but let me clarify: you don't choose your sexuality," she wrote. "You were born as you are. It has always been my priority to protect the LGBTQ community of which I belong."
