The Last Man Walking actress Miley Cyrus said she was “sickened” to hear about another woman who claimed she felt uncomfortable dressing in lingeries and asked her fans to “leave me alone.”
Cyrus, who appeared in the new movie The Last Men Standing, shared a tweet from a fan about the experience.
“I feel sickened to see another woman feel so alone.
Leave me alone.
The only thing that’s worse is when you think of the people who were so brave and did this.
It’s sad and disgusting,” she wrote.
Cyrus was responding to a fan who said she thought Cyrus “shouldn’t be in the lingerie business.”
Cyrus said it was a “bad joke” and she was sorry for anyone who felt uncomfortable.
“If I had to tell a man I felt uncomfortable in the ’70s, ’80s or ’90s, I’d probably tell him to fuck off.
That’s the only thing I could think of,” she said.
“It’s not like I want him to feel uncomfortable in my life.
I want me to feel comfortable in his life.
So I’m sorry.
You don’t have to be a woman to feel the way I feel about the lingeria business, so I’m really sorry.”
Cyrus also addressed the backlash over her appearance in the film, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal.
Cyrus, 41, said the backlash against her appearance was “really stupid.”
“It was just stupid, and I didn’t think it was going to be that big of a deal, and then it got bigger,” she told CBS’ 60 Minutes.
“When you think about the women, I think that’s where it started.”
Cyrus’ comments came after a series of reports about women being harassed by men in the industry who use lingerie and make-up to look like women.
“There are people in the business who have been harassed by other men for years and years and it just never seems to stop,” Cyrus said.
Cyrus told 60 Minutes that she was speaking out because she has been harassed for years.
“You don’t know how much it hurts when it’s the person that you’re working with that is doing it to you.
And you’re going, ‘What are you doing?'”
Cyrus said, explaining that people need to take a stand.
“And that’s why I’m saying I’m going to do it.
And that’s not just for me, I’m gonna do it for all of us.
And I’m not just saying it for myself.
It can happen to anybody, I can’t tell you that, but it can happen for anybody.
And it is so important that people have the courage to stand up for themselves.”
