“I wont tolerate someone telling me 2 die,”

“U have nothing better 2 do than hate? That saddens me. Im surrounded by love Im sorry 4 whatever happened 2 make u so bitter.”
Cyrus’ public war against the threats caused her fans to go into a total uproar, with her fans lighting up Twitter with messages of support and messages of hate for the bullies.
Miley Cyrus is one of the celebrities who have truly embraced social networking as a way to reach out to their fans. She has used the sites for activism and just to keep people informed about what she is doing with her life.
