An Instagram account tethered to the name “mileyxxcyrus” uploaded a photo apparently showing Miley Cyrus smoking a blunt. The image (that’s it up there, obviously) was posted along with the caption ”High as fvck.” This was alarming to many people because… because people are easily alarmed.
We haven’t see any condemnation or angry tweets or diatribes about how far Hannah Montana has fallen, but we’re sure they’re all out there in stupid droves. Did these people not know that Miley Cyrus can’t be tamed?
Anyway, actual Miley Cyrus offered a clipped response to the sudden dumb controversy:
But! Before you think you can go to sleep and rest peacefully knowing we live in a world where faintly relevant former child stars never smoke drugs…
Both the person in the photo and Actual Miley Cyrus have the same tattoo. And the same hair! Further, whoever manages the fake Instagram account sure has a lot of access to personal photos of Actual Miley Cyrus. Further still, we all know Cyrus is a preeminent Latin scholar. Our sister site, Crushable, broke down the several conspiracy theories, if you’re interested in that kind of thing.
We obviously don’t care if this is her or not (and she’s probably not even doing anything illegal–Cyrus lives in California, where people throw joints at you on the street).
We do, however, have a hard time defending anyone involved because the only thing more asinine than people being scandalized by marijuana use is people uploading photos of their marijuana use to various social media platforms.
