TinyFist: It's almost humorous when you think about the fact these whiny b*tches live and walk among us.How could their lives, upbringing, experiences, etc. have so shaped their worldview in a manner that causes them outrage over this instead of shrugging their shoulders and going "meh" at the whole thing?/yeah, not humorous once I started thinking about it.
NewportBarGuy: This is what happens when we don't have state mental asylums.
Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: I'm more offended that VMAs still exist.
Mugato: No it wasn't. And these shrieking hens who are crying about this were probably kids themselves when Madonna was doing the same thing on the same channel.
InmanRoshi: White Bourgeoisie Brooklynite Hipster Blogger on Twitter as it was happening: OMGZ, Miley Cyrus is slutting it up all over the place on the VMAs. It's farking disgusting. Put some clothes on, whore!!!Public: You sound like the scared old square white people reacting to Elvis in 1956. And your "slut shaming" is pathetic misogyny.White Bourgeoisie Brooklynite Hipster Blogger the next day on his blog: Oh ..... but .... wait. See, I was upset because it was RACIST. Yeah, that's it. It was racist. It offended my good progressive idealism, which is WAY more progressive than yours. Trust me, my reaction was purely because I have a much broader sympathy for the plight of African Americans everywhere. I'm just much more progressive than thou. I just hate it when black people and black culture are relegated to props by white musicians. Now excuse me while I go put on Bowie's "Young Americans" album.
ArmednHammered: She's just "acting out" because of the abuse she's suffered on the casting couches of numerous producers and directors. It's kind of like Mos Eisley Spaceport, but in Hollywood. I'm not even going to mention her father, nope, not going there.
420Counsellor: MrHappyRotter: obligatory[i.imgur.com image 599x345]Is that a real screenshot from the actual performance in question, or something else?I don't see how this performance is much different from Madonna or others, as has been mentioned. I'm more surprised to think that the Smith family would all be looking that dismayed. Is Miley a good family friend and playmate to Smith's kids, so this is somehow shocking to them to see? Who hasn't watched a young neighbour girl bloom? Aren't all women secretly whores deep down? Have I gone too far with this?
ladyfortuna: "* Cyrus was acting like a devil flicking that tongue as deamons do." "I spent a good half hour trying to come up with a Linux joke for this, but alas I failed.Please, Fark, do me proud.
Hyjamon: RobertBruce: I didn't watch. Was it that much more "shocking" than Madonna in the 80's? Ridiculous pearl clutching either way, then and now.I would say Madonna was at least trying to do something artistic even if it was confrontational.there was no message, boundary pushing, artistic merit with Miley. Just a white girl who bought an outfit from Hot Topic/Forever 21 who can't dance.
DownDaRiver: Great name for a punk band
AliceBToklasLives: Why were all of these sensitive families watching the VMAs? MTV is not known for it's family-friendly content./Then there's the complainer who got the point: "I was subjugated to 4 minutes of Miley Cyrus."
RobertBruce: I didn't watch. Was it that much more "shocking" than Madonna in the 80's? Ridiculous pearl clutching either way, then and now.
megarian: Also, I liked when she "grabbed her crouch".
megarian: *reads complaints*I came.
Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Several viewers were reported to have gotten the vapors.
