So a couple days ago, Miley Cyrus released a music video for her song Liberty Walk, which utilizes a bunch of footage from the Occupy Wall Street movements even though Miley has never really been seen anywhere near them and she’s sitting on a multi-million dollar Disney empire. Shockingly, Occupy organizers noticed this and called her out on it, saying that while they’re grateful for the support, it would be even better if Miley, you know, actually did something. TMZ reports:
An influential leader in the Occupy movement wants less talk and more action from Miley Cyrus — telling TMZ, the singer’s recent music video in “support” of the Occupy movement is nothing but an empty gesture. Priscilla Grim — co-editor of The Occupied Wall Street Journal — tells us, Miley’s music video tribute “rocks” in spirit … but she doubts the singer has the cojones to actually hit the streets. Priscilla tells us, “I double dog dare [her] to fight on the front line of economic civil rights at LA City Hall” — adding, “Revolutionaries occupy, Ms. Cyrus.”
Look, it’s great that Miley supports the movement and all, but … well, considering the song actually came out two years ago and she hasn’t really done a whole lot for the movement, the least she could do is spend a day down there. Words are great, but unless you actually plan on doing something to back them up, it’s all just very pretty sounding air.
