Miley Cyrus Issues Apology For ‘Hip Hop Controversy:’ ‘I F*cked Up’
While many assumed it would never arrive, Miley Cyrus has issued an apology for the “Hip Hop controversy” that’s surrounded her over the years following her “insensitive/offensive” comments about the genre.
Facing accusations of cultural appropriation and being labeled a “culture vulture,” Cyrus states, I want to start with saying I am sorry. I own the fact that saying … ‘this pushed me out of the hip hop scene a little’ was insensitive as it is a privilege to have the ability to dip in and out of ‘the scene.’ There are decades of inequality that I am aware of, but still have a lot learn about.”
In addition, she adds, “Silence is apart of the problem and I refuse to be quiet anymore. My words became a divider in a time where togetherness and unity is crucial. I can not change what I said at that time, but I can say I am deeply sorry for the disconnect my words caused. Simply said; i f*cked up and I sincerely apologize. I’m committed to using my voice for healing, change, and standing up for what’s right. Miley.”
