Miley Cyrus has ruffled some feathers in the online Black community after she posted a questionable photo on Instagram.

The 21-year-old singer is pictured wearing the biggest brown booty pads I’ve ever seen and uploaded the photo to her Instagram account with the caption:

“Ass so fat need a lap dance”

Miley is not a stranger to criticism, especially as and when it comes to her attention-seeking antics. One writer expressed her disgust for Miley’s constant stereotyping of Black women. She writes:

Maybe she thinks what she is doing is cute, funny and even harmless. But it is in fact disturbing, degrading and a rehashing of the same tired stereotypes about Black women and our bodies. Her actions can’t even be considered envy, filed under the ‘she wishes she were Black’ category, because everything is done with a tone of mockery and not appreciation.

Some may say that Miley’s post was harmless, but I don’t know…seems like a mockery to me. What are your thoughts?
