Watch: Miley Cyrus Faces Backlash for Telling Fans They 'Don't Have to be Gay' because There are 'Good Men Out There'

Monday October 21, 2019

Miley Cyrus is being hit by a wave of backlash after she took to her Instagram Live Sunday and told fans that they "don't have to be gay" because "there are good men out there," BuzzFeed reports.

Cyrus appeared in the live stream along with her new boyfriend, Australian singer Cody Simpson. The "Wrecking Ball" singer recently divorced from her husband Liam Hemsworth and then was romantically linked with "The Hills: New Beginnings" cast member Kaitlyn Carter before dating Simpson.

"Don't give up," she said during the video. "You don't have to be gay, there are good people with dicks out there, you just gotta find them. You just gotta find a dick that's not a dick, you know what I mean?"

Simpson then laughed and repeated her words, "don't have to be gay."

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

It didn't take long before people called the singer out on Twitter, saying Cyrus insulted gay and bisexual women.

Cyrus has been a longtime LGBTQ advocate, launching the non-profit Happy Hippie Foundation, which helps homeless LGBTQ youth. She also said she is pansexual and gender fluid. After marrying Hemsworth in 2018, she said she identified as queer.
