Now, Cyrus has responded to the viral video in a series of Instagram stories. "She can be wearing what she wants," she wrote. "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."
She also wrote #DontFuckWithMyFreedom, part of the lyrics from her song, "Mother's Daughter," in response to comments on the video that shamed her for wanting to be "sexy," implying that the incident was her fault because of the way she dresses or acts.
Miley was in Spain to perform at the Primavera Sound Festival, where she performed some of her new songs.
While she hasn't commented on the incident on any of social media channels yet, but it should go without saying that it's not okay to do this to anyone, celebrities included.
