Miley Cyrus experienced a terrifying ordeal recently after a “fan” groped and forcibly kissed the 26-year-old singer as she walked through a crowd in Barcelona with husband Liam Hemsworth.

Miley took to social media to share a video of the incident and added her commentary on the matter in screenshots, where she directly calls out trolls for their awful comments.

In reply to one comment that read, “You wanted to be ‘sexy’, what do you expect?” Miley directly responded to the woman, saying, “Don’t F*** With My Freedom #stillnotaskingforit.” She then added:

“She can be wearing what she wants. She can be a virgin. She can be sleeping with 5 different people. She can be with her husband. She can be with her girlfriend. She can be naked. She CAN’T be grabbed without her consent.”

All I have to say here is: PREACH IT, MY GIRL, PREACH IT.

A source close to Miley told Entertainment Tonight that the singer was “unsettled” by the incident, but is “doing fine.”

Miley Cyrus has always been one of the most outspoken celebrities of her generation. She’s an advocate for the LGBTQ community, animal rights, Planned Parenthood — you name it, she’s advocating for it. It’s never OK for anyone to touch anyone without their consent, and it’s powerful to see Miley speak out and use her platform to not only educate people on the matter but also give a voice to those who otherwise might not have one.
