If there’s one thing Miley Cyrus knows how to do, it’s stir up controversy on social media.
Whether it’s nudity, recreational drug use or bringing attention to social issues such as homelessness, Cyrus certainly knows how to get a conversation started among Twitter and Instagram users. This time, the pop star has people talking about her animals and whether or not she is abusive to them.
The hoopla all started when Cyrus posted a picture of herself giving her pet pig a spa experience by grooming and painting its hooves. Cyrus and friends look to be having a ball, while the pot-bellied pig looks less than enthused, and animal lovers were outraged.
While we agree that painting any animal with toxic paint is probably not the best thing for it and it’s safe to say that Cyrus is likely not the most responsible pet owner in the world, the social media comments got seriously out of hand. The internet bullies really came out in full effect.
Here’s a look at some of the craziest ones we’ve seen so far.
Everybody’s passionate about something, but name-calling is not really an effective way to call positive attention to your cause. “Isn’t this #animalcruelty s***?” @_moonbunny commented on one of Cyrus’ photos, and @jaxsphoto said, “You stupid f***ing c***, why would you do this?” And @caitlinsimmlol also dropped the c-bomb.
