In case you haven’t heard, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are officially breaking up following less than a year of marriage.
While there is still no official cause cited as the reason for their separation, a rep for Miley gave a statement to People which said, “Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers.”
Of course, that didn’t mean that the internet would refrain from the internet going on to mourn the separation:
However, there was one person on Twitter that decided they were going to run with the rumor that Miley only split with Liam in order to explore relationships with other women.
#MileyCyrus splitting and allegedly cheating on Liam with a woman confirms that you shouldn’t date bi people. Not offensive, just true. Bi is greedy and never satisfied.— The Tigerbob destroyer of SJWs (@theTigerbob) August 11, 2019
This is quite a disrespectful comment to make about the bisexual community – not to mention such an ignorant generalization to assume that bi people are only “greedy” or “never satisfied” people, rather than also capable of having happy, monogamous relationships like the rest of us. Not today, Tigerbob, not today.
Luckily enough, Halsey was on hand to defend Miley and set Tigerbob straight – like the straight white male he probably is:
Hey tigerbob. Doesn’t surprise me that ur saying this and ur page has u crying about Brie Larson too! Stop being afraid of women who aren’t afraid to do what pleases them and not other people 🙂 https://t.co/uPyB1cXE0D— h (@halsey) August 11, 2019
We can’t get enough of her response – stop being afraid of women indeed!
Sadly, Tigerbob wasn’t the only hater on Twitter:
Don’t act like a bi when you only had relationship w/ boy sis— JamesJ (@JamesJouly) August 12, 2019
I mean, did you ever saw her making an appearance with a girl on her side?— JamesJ (@JamesJouly) August 12, 2019
As part of the L in LGBT, can I just personally say that there needs to be a shift in social conscious when it comes to bi people and breakups? Sometimes it just doesn’t work out for two people in a relationship, and that’s ok. Not all couplings are meant to last forever. But blaming a person’s bisexuality for their broken-down marriage is just cruel. Even if Miley did cheat on Liam with other women then it’s infidelity and a blatant disregard for one’s partner that would be to blame, not a person’s sexual orientation. But there has been no official cause released yet so can we all just calm down and give the broken up pair their space?
Meanwhile, Miley seems to be handling the end of her marriage quite well despite her heartbreak:
Don’t fight evolution, because you will never win. Like the mountain I am standing on top of, which was once under water, connected with Africa , change is inevitable. The Dolomites were not created over night, it was over millions of years that this magnificent beauty was formed pic.twitter.com/aM2Dlq0clS— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) August 11, 2019
She may even give us a new song at some point:
