Miley Cyrus insulted the Mexican community when her latest stage stunt involved the singer wearing large, fake buttocks while being whipped by a backup dancer using the Mexican flag during her Bangerz tour in Monterrey, Mexico.
Adding fuel to the fire, Cyrus performed the offensive stunt on Sept. 16, Mexican Independence Day.
Mexican law is strict when it comes to respecting its flag, meaning the consequence to disrespecting their national symbol could involve being fined up to $1,200 and spending three days in jail.
Although lawmakers in Nuevo Leon, Mexico, unanimously voted to condemn the incident, no announcement has been made on whether or not the “Hannah Montana” train-wreck will be serving time in jail.
Performing this mindless stunt on an important date to Mexican history completely mocks the country’s struggle to successfully overcome Spanish colonial government.
The idiot pop sensation needs to realize the symbolism of the Mexican flag is sacred to its community and the flag is not there for her to degrade as a crude stage prop.
The colors of the flag go beyond looks and strongly represent the purity of catholic faith, the hope for a better nation and pay tribute for the blood that was shed during the country’s fight for freedom.
Cyrus has yet to issue a statement about the incident, but a simple, “I’m sorry” will not be enough for degrading an entire nation’s national symbol.
