Miley Cyrus Responds To Video Of Her Getting Groped In The Most Empowering Way
Over the weekend, a video of Miley Cyrus getting physically groped by someone surfaced online. In the video, Miley can be seen leaving her hotel in Barcelona alongside her husband, Liam Hemsworth when a man starts grabbing her hair and body and then eventually attempts to kiss her. You can see Miley struggling to get away while her security tries to step in and Liam pulls her away. They separate Miley from the man pretty quickly, but we’ve no doubt that the entire experience was terrifying. Miley came across the video online and has now responded to the invasive act in the most powerful way ever.

Miley took to Instagram last night to embed the disturbing video in a series of Stories with this strong caption: “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.”
The hashtag Miley used is lyrics from a song off her latest album She Is Coming called “Mother’s Daughter.” The new album is majorly focused on female empowerment, so it’s super disappointing that Miley had to deal with this while promoting it.
Miley also went on to tweet about the incident, replying to haters who suggested she was asking to be assaulted because of how she dressed. “Don’t fuck with my freedom. #stillnotaskingforit,” she wrote.

We think Miley handled the entire situation like a boss and we’re glad she’s letting all of her followers know that ignoring consent will NOT be tolerated any longer. Everyone go stream She Is Coming ASAP!
