Hey Miley Cyrus, let’s not be anti-Semitic, m’kay?

Miley Cyrus

When we last left Miley Cyrus, she was getting porn offers which I took to mean the media sh!tstorm surrounding her would soon subside and we’d move onto the next former child star who appropriated culture during a major awards show. (I’m guessing … Zack and Cody, Latino Morrissey fandom, at the Kids Choice Awards.) Well, Miley must have thought the same thing, because she’s hitting the snooze button on her 15 minutes by … being kind of anti-semitic? Oh. OH. Hunger TV reports …

You know me and Rankin were talking about it. With magazines, with movies, it’s always weird when things are targeted for young people yet they’re driven by people that are like 40 years too old. It can’t be like this 70 year old Jewish man that doesn’t leave his desk all day, telling me what the clubs want to hear. I’m going out, I know what they want to hear. I know when you’re in a club, what makes everyone go crazy and when the time is where everyone’s like “alright I’m going go get a drink”. I know when people walk off the dance floor and I know what’s driving it so I’ve got to be the one doing it because they’re just not in on what 20 year olds are doing.

So. Yeah. Agism and anti-Semitism. Well then. Look, I understand that we’ve created a culture where no one will listen to you unless you’re willing to shamelessly attention whore as much as you can, and we’re even harder on young women than we are on men about it. That being said, maybe this is the wrong way to react to it. Maybe let’s not do this ever again, m’kay? Or keep up with this. I’m sure saying a bunch of dumb stuff won’t bite you in the ass.

Sh!t to be thankful for: Dumb people don’t know they’re dumb, Darwinism.
