The blood moon brought the stars out to Twitter, and at least one spot-on spoof of Miley Cyrus.
The lunar eclipse early Tuesday morning, April 15, resulted in a rare event called the blood moon. The moon was seen across most of North America, and social media was all a-twitter over the sight. The moon appeared to be red when it passed into Earth’s shadow for almost three hours very early on Tuesday (around 2 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. EST).
Celebs took to Twitter to share their excitement, but fans also used the opportunity to show their creativity (for lack of a better word), and one such post was about Miley Cyrus.
The singer’s “Wrecking Ball” video may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but it’s likely to follow her around for quite a while, and may even become a regret of hers (if that is even possible).
Instagram user isramatos may win the award for best post of the night for his blood moon photoshopping of Miley Cyrus and her wrecking ball. He posted the photo along with the caption, “Miley Cyrus bring the blood moon like a wrecking ball.”
Cyrus also posted to Twitter to share her thoughts on the blood moon, although nothing nearly as interesting as the fan’s posting.
