Miley Cyrus bashes Selena Gomez, then reprimands haters on Instagram (PHOTOS)

Miley Cyrus is throwing some major unnecessary shade, and her dissing game is just as eye-rollingly annoying as ever.

She posted an Instagram photo very prominently featuring her pushed up chest.

A photo that very much mimics (read: mocks) a recent post by frenemy Selena Gomez. But it wasn’t just the photo that made Cyrus’ post scandalous; it was the caption that was seriously nasty. She said, “Do yiew tink if I push muah titties up I’ll get mo followahhhzzzz? [sic]”

If you don’t think the post was directed at Gomez, take a look at the “Heart Wants What It Wants” singer’s photo:

Immediately after posting the jab, the hashtag #SelenaPleaseMeetMileySheLovesYou started trending worldwide. And Selena’s fans swooped in to come to her defense against the “Wrecking Ball” singer by doing what the internet does best: calling her a slut (amongst other things).

This is what makes all of this, both sides, so bad: These women should be leading by example, not bashing other female celebrities. The hatred that Miley is getting is only equal to the hatred she put out in the first place. It was a totally unnecessary, unprovoked attack on another woman’s photo.

And she suggested Selena was using her sexuality to get followers on the internet (which would be a totally unheard of thing for Cyrus! Read: sarcasm). So she is getting terrible, awful, ugly hatred back.

If we could just get these female artists and celebrities to stop all the woman-on-woman bashing, then maybe their sea of internet followers could learn to love themselves and love each other, too.

Bottom line is, people of the interwebs, treat people how you want to be treated.

Here’s to hoping that Gomez doesn’t respond and drag this thing out.
