Noah Cyrus is feeling the heat today, after using racially charged language to defend Harry Styles.
Full story below…
As reported, the former One Direction singer has been engaged in a back and forth of sorts with conservative Candace Owens – who has been less than endorsing of his gender fluid fashion.
Following Owens’ latest comments, Cyrus weighed-in with an ill-worded defense.
Taking to Instagram Stories, she shared a snap of Styles in a dress and captioned it:
“he wears this dress better than any of u nappy a** heauxz”
The racially insensitive tone of the terms infuriated many, including those who don’t even like Owens – who is still a Black woman (biologically).
Having deleted the post, 22-year-old Cyrus again took to social media. But, this time, to apologize. She wrote:
“I am mortified that I used a term without knowing the context and history, but I know now and I am horrified and truly sorry. I will never use it gain. Thank you for educating me. I in no way meant to offend anyone. I am so sorry.”
Sigh. It’s a whole 2020 and folk are still “not realizing” the improperness of certain words?
There’s a whole lot that could be said. But we’ll simply leave it at the fact that it’s important such behaviors are called out and corrected with the swiftness.
