Miley Cyrus Hits YouTube to Apologize for Comments About the Hip-Hop Community

Miley Cyrus just hit up the comments section of a fan’s YouTube video to apologize for remarks she made about hip-hop a couple years back. The video—titled “Miley Cyrus Is My Problematic Fav…Sorry”—was uploaded by YouTube user Kenya Wilson, who called out Miley for doing “some very racially insensitive things as far as culturally appropriation” and referenced the singer’s comments in a May 2017 Billboard interview.

In the interview, Miley said “I love [Kendrick Lamar’d song “Humble”] because it’s not ‘Come sit on my dick, suck on my cock.’ I can’t listen to that anymore. That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little. It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my cock’—I am so not that.”

Miley apologized for the remarks in the comments section of the video above, writing “Just watched your video. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak up. Being silent is not like me at all. I am aware of my platform and have always used it the best way I know how and to shine a light on injustice. I want to start with saying I am sorry.”

She added, “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. Silence is a part 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.”

Miley ended her post with “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.”
