Miley Cyrus angers people with picture of Pope Francis
Several Catholics were left in anger after Miley Cyrus promoted her surprise album with a photoshopped picture of the Pope Francis holding a copy of it. Cyrus, 22, took to the photo-sharing site Instagram September 1 to post the picture.
“All the cool <g data-gr-id="18">kidzzzz</g> are listening to #mileycyrusandherdeadpetz. check it out,” she wrote in the caption.
Many found the use of the Pope’s photo to promote her album Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz offensive.
“<g data-gr-id="19">Enferma</g> mental (mentally ill),” a fan commented in Spanish. Another said, “This is disrespectful.” Another fan agreed, “Yeah not okay with this, love u but love Pope Francis more.”
The Wrecking Ball hitmaker announced “Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz” after performing a new song called “<g data-gr-id="20">Dooo</g> It!” at the VMAs. A joint effort with The Flaming Lips, the album boasts guest appearances from Big Sean, the former Disney star’s dad Billy Ray Cyrus and her frequent collaborator Mike WiLL Made It.
