The heavily attooed singer told his fans that he was treated like a criminal by the Canadian authorities because of his image. He said his harassment left him in lot of mental pain and agony. “Every time I cross into Canada, border agents treat me like a criminal,” Cyrus, 26, wrote on Instagram.

“Even though I've never been arrested, had a DUI, or any serious trouble with the law. With the image I have I become an immediate target,” he wrote. This treatment has given him "severe anxiety and panic attacks," owing to which he will not be able to perform at his show.

“One of my last times going there I was put in a room for hours and interrogated and searched till after hours of them finding nothing they finally let me go,” Cyrus wrote further, adding that he feels "embarrassed" about canceling the show. He also added that he has been “around the world playing shows” since he was 18 and he has not been treated this way by any other country.

Cyrus also requested his fans understand his mental state and how “deeply sorry” he is to not able to make it to Canada. However, he promised to return to the country soon. “Once again I apologize to my fans, band, and everyone involved in the Warped Tour."

Cyrus was also recently barred from entering an unnamed restaurant in Kentucky because of his body tattoos.
