Former Disney Star Miley Cyrus is being slammed by a conservative watchdog group for her “disgusting and “sleazy behavior. The Culture and Media Institute, which claims to “preserve and help restore America’s culture, character, traditional values, and morals against the assault of the liberal media elite,” is having a fit against the pop star for suggestive photos released by TMZ last week showing Miley getting very friendly with a cake shaped like a penis.
The group has criticized Miley for her “disgusting behavior and has been quoted as saying,
“[Miley has]become the epitome of the anti-role model for young girls.”
The group also has coined a phrase named after Cyrus called the “Miley Cyrus Effect”. They claim the “Miley Cyrus Effect” is when young girls try their hardest to act like trashy adults.
The group has also criticized Cyrus’ videos and her behavior at concerts.
The group is not alone in their criticism. Many fans parents claim that Miley shouldn’t be running around smoking salvia, extolling the virtues of Marijuana and sucking on penis cakes.
Ironically, not everyone agrees that her behavior is always on the low end of the class scale. Hollywood Life’s readers voted Cyrus 2011′s Role Model of the Year.
In addition, MTV columnist Sam Lansky was quoted as saying that
“Miley is a much better role model than we tend to give her credit for,”
Lansky quoted the multitude of causes that Cyrus has thrown her star power behind. Miley has been at the forefront of the fight for animal rights. She has also spoken out very strongly to young girls about having positive body images. She has also been heavily involved in the fight for Gay Rights. She has been involved with various gay rights organizations and even calling out the CEO of Urban Outfitters for his views against gay marriage.
What do you think? Is Miley Cyrus a good role model or a classless skank like the conservatives make her out to be?
