Miley Cyrus Compares Censorship Of 'We Can't Stop' To George Zimmerman Verdict

  on

Miley Cyrus is opening up about her hit song “We Can’t Stop” and is not enthusiastic about being edited by various radio and television stations.

The music video caused controversy, in part being that the 20-year-old is a former Disney star who most remember as the innocent Hannah Montana. But now Cyrus is showing that she is all grown up. In the video, highlights include the young blonde grabbing women’s butts and chests, gyrating on a bed and jumping around in a barely there swimsuit, while referencing the drug molly, which is a powder or crystal form of MDMA.

When asked by the Daily Mail about her racy video and those who think it is inappropriate, she replied by referencing the George Zimmerman trial.

"Then I'll give you an edit. I just think the world is so lame, because you can shoot people in a movie and you can let people like [George] Zimmerman off on trial, but you can't have someone going like this [she stimulates oral sex gesture], that is so dumb to me," Cyrus said.

"The world is such a f--ked up place the last thing people need to worry about is my cute little video for 'We Can't Stop,' you know what I mean?" Zimmerman killed unarmed 17-year-old teenager Trayvon Martin last February, and a jury of six women found the 29-year-old not guilty earlier this month.

His acquittal sparked reactions from around the world, including civil rights organization NAACP, which said Sunday that they are “deeply troubled by the jury’s verdict.” Protests were held around the country after the decision was announced, including in major cities such as New York and Los Angeles.

Based on her reply, it seems Cyrus has no intension of playing it safe anytime soon. Check out “We Can’t Stop” below:
