Miley Cyrus-Sinead O'Connor Feud Escalates: 'She Has Done This To Cause Me Harm'

Miley Cyrus can ignore Sinead O’Connor’s impassioned letter, but to continue to be a “prostitute” after the “Nothing Compares To You” star already gave her advice is too much for the Irish singer to take.

Instead of responding directly to the heartfelt memo O’Connor penned, Cyrus went back and retweeted messages of the Irish singer that were years old, which apparently happened while she was trying to seek mental help.

Cyrus took a screenshot of posts O’Connor wrote and then posted, “Before Amanda Bynes there was…” and shared the picture. She also took a screenshot of the time the Irish singer famously tore a picture of Pope John Paul II in half during a performance on “Saturday Night Live.”

Cyrus replied she didn't have time to respond to any of the singer's lengthy letters:

Sinead. I don't have time to write you an open letter cause Im hosting & performing on SNL this week.

Recently, O’Connor revealed Cyrus’ lawyers would be contacted by hers since she’s been getting emails from people who are concerned about her mental health after the old post the 20-year-old singer posted on her page. “She has done this in an attempt to deliberately cause me harm and hurt,” she wrote. “I wish to confirm that I am quite well and kindly request people cease e mailing me in the mistaken belief these are recent tweets.”

Then she added, “Ms Cyrus' lawyers will be contacted by mine regarding this matter. I confirm also that I do not at all support or condone the abuse or mockery of those who have been brave enough to openly discuss mental health issues.”

But that was just an update. The full text to her original Facebook post can be read below:

"Miley… Really? Who the f-ck is advising you?" she said on Facebook. "Because taking me on is even more f--kin' stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism. You have posted today tweets of mine which are two years old, which were posted by me when I was unwell and seeking help so as to make them look like they are recent. In doing so you mock myself and Amanda Bynes for having suffered with mental health issues and for having sought help."

"I mean really really… who advises you?" O'Connor continued. "have you any idea how stupid and dangerous it is to mock people for suffering illness? You will yourself one day suffer such illness, that is without doubt. The course you have set yourself upon can only end in that, trust me. I am staggered that any 20 yr old woman of the 21st century could behave in such a dangerous and irresponsible manner as to not only send the signal to young women that its ok to act like prostitutes but also to the signal that those who have suffered or do suffer mental health problems are to be mocked and have their opinions invalidated. Have you no sense of danger at all? or responsibility? Remove your tweets immediately or you will hear from my lawyers. I am certain you will be hearing from all manner of mental health advocacy groups also. It is not acceptable to mock any person for having suffered."

"It is most unbecoming of you to respond in such a fashion to someone who expressed care for you," O'Connor said about her first letter. "And worse that you are such an anti-female tool of the anti-female music industry. I hope that you will apologise to Amanda Bynes and to any person who has been wounded by your mockery of those who have suffered. And I hope that you will wake up and understand that you in fact are a danger to women."

"Furthermore you posted a photo of me tearing the pope's photo .. as if to imply insanity.. by doing so all you have achieved is to expose your staggering ignorance," O'Connor added. "I suggest you read The Philadelphia Report, The Boston Report, all the reports which will illuminate for you why that action of mine remains sane and valid. By mocking it you mock every child who suffered sexual abuse at the hands of priests and had it covered by the Vatican. You could really do with educating yourself, that is if you're not too busy getting your tits out to read."

"Ball's in your court, Miley." 

Previously, O’Connor sent an open letter to Cyrus, which essentially said the music business is using the “Wrecking Ball” singer for her youth and beauty, but that they’re just “pimping” her and treating her like a “prostitute.”

O’Connor probably felt close enough to write the letter to Cyrus after the starlet reportedly said the Irish singer inspired her “Wrecking Ball” video, but don’t be fooled, O’Connor wasn’t a fan of Cyrus licking a sledge hammer, and she also didn’t appreciate the 20-year-old posing for an even more risqué photo shoot after the letter.
