Bristol Palin fired back at “Wrecking Ball” singer Miley Cyrus for criticizing Christian lawmakers in her interview with Paper magazine. The 24-year-old daughter of author and politician Sarah Palin targeted Cyrus in a blog post, calling the singer out for her “hilarious tirade.”
"While her nude photo shoot has attracted the attention of many, it is her hilarious tirade about tolerance that turned my head," Palin wrote on Thursday. The “We Can’t Stop” singer told Paper that she doesn’t consider herself a judgmental person but that she believed some Christian lawmakers and conservatives were victims of backward thinking.
"Those people [shouldn't] get to make our laws," Cyrus said in the interview on Tuesday, where she appeared nude and covered with paint. She also deemed literal readings of Bible stories like Noah's Ark "f---ing insane" and called her parents "conservative-ass motherf---ers."
"Is it just me or does it seem more than a little fake that someone claiming to be accepting of everyone and everything would spew such judgment towards her own parents and their deeply held religious beliefs?" Palin said. "She wants everyone else to let her be 'free to be Miley,' but seems unwilling to offer the same respect to her parents and those who wish to live out their Christian faith."
Cyrus did compliment her parents Billy Ray and Tish in the interview, saying her mother was accepting when she revealed she was attracted to women while a young teen. She also shared the compassion she felt for the homeless, adding "I can't drive by in my f---ing Porsche and not f---ing do something,"
Still, Palin was unimpressed with Miley’s viewpoint, which she felt seemed somewhat hypocritical.
“Thanks for giving us the best example of what 'tolerance' looks like in Hollywood: it looks a lot like contempt," Palin said.
