TOP STORY: Miley Cyrus Claps Back to Haters Blaming Her For Being Groped By a Fan
Miley Cyrus, 26, was leaving her hotel alongside husband Liam Hemsworth, 29, in Barcelona, Spain, when a “fan” pushed his way through the crowd, grabbed her hair, and attempted to pull her in for a kiss. While Miley tried to evade his grasp, Hemsworth reached his arm around to pull his wife away from the aggressive stranger, before security was finally able step in.
The footage is disturbing to watch, but even more sad, afterward, there were numerous people on social media blaming Miley for the incident. To what’s obviously a ridiculous assertion to make, the former Disney star had the perfect response.
Using the footage taken on June 3 in Spain, adding in a clip of The View defending Cyrus, the “She Is Coming” singer tweeted, “She can be wearing what she wants. She can be a virgin. She can be sleeping with five different people. She can be with her husband. She can be with her girlfriend. She can be naked. She CAN’T be grabbed without her consent. #DontFuckWithMyFreedom”
