Looks like Miley Cyrus didn’t only piss off a bunch of parents around the country — she’s also making enemies with people associated with the props she used on stage.
According to my friends at TMZ, a rep for the Teddy Bear Fund (an org that gives cute, cuddly stuffed bears to children at abuse shelters) was disappointed in Miley’s vulgar acts towards the over-sized ones on stage. “Miley made a poor choice to use a universally loved children’s teddy bear in an offensive way,” they said. “There is always good art and bad art — unfortunately … this was bad art.”
Next up is the inventor of the Foam Finger. The innocent prop was created by then 16-year-old Steve Chmelar to show support for his high school team. But now the 59-year-old is shaking his head at how Miley chose to use it:
“I would say that it certainly misrepresented its intent to encourage team support,” he said. “She took an honorable icon that is seen in sporting venues everywhere and degraded it. Fortunately, the foam finger has been around long enough that it will survive this incident. As for Miley Cyrus, let’s hope she can outlive this event and also survive.”
Do you think both are over-reacting or will you never look at either of those items again without
