Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball single may have been inspired by Sinead O‘Connor, but don’t count on a duet any time soon.
O’Connor has lashed out at Cyrus for poking fun at her battle with mental illness in a second open letter addressed to the star.
According to the Daily Mail, an irate O’Connor warned Cyrus that taking her on was “even more f****g’ stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism”.
She blasted the twerking star for poking fun at her and Amanda Bynes.
“You have posted today tweets of mine which are two years old, which were posted by me when I was unwell and seeking help so as to make them look like they are recent. In doing so you mock myself and Amanda Bynes for having suffered with mental health issues and for having sought help.
“I mean really really… who advises you? have you any idea how stupid and dangerous it is to mock people for suffering illness? You will yourself one day suffer such illness, that is without doubt. The course you have set yourself upon can only end in that, trust me.”
O’Connor then refers to Miley as a danger to women.
“I am staggered that any 20 yr old woman of the 21st century could behave in such a dangerous and irresponsible manner as to not only send the signal to young women that its ok to act like prostitutes but also to the signal that those who have suffered or do suffer mental health problems are to be mocked and have their opinions invalidated.
“Have you no sense of danger at all? or responsibility? Remove your tweets immediately or you will hear from my lawyers. I am certain you will be hearing from all manner of mental health advocacy groups also. It is not acceptable to mock any person for having suffered.
“It is most unbecoming of you to respond in such a fashion to someone who expressed care for you. And worse that you are such an anti-female tool of the anti-female music industry. I hope that you will apologise to Amanda Bynes and to any person who has been wounded by your mockery of those who have suffered. And I hope that you will wake up and understand that you in fact are a danger to women.”
O’Connor was also incensed that Cyrus chose to mock her over the infamous incident in which she tore up a photo of the pope.
“Furthermore you posted a photo of me tearing the pope’s photo .. as if to imply insanity.. by doing so all you have achieved is to expose your staggering ignorance. I suggest you read The Philadelphia Report, The Boston Report, all the reports which will illuminate for you why that action of mine remains sane and valid.
“By mocking it you mock every child who suffered sexual abuse at the hands of priests and had it covered by the Vatican. You could really do with educating yourself, that is if you’re not too busy getting your t**s out to read.”
The feud started when Miley claimed her Wrecking Ball single was inspired by O’Connor’s classic, Nothing Compares 2 U. O’Connor responded with an open letter in which she warned Miley to be careful in the music industry. Miley’s rather childish response to that clearly got O’Connor’s goat. - Tonight Reporter
