Miley Cyrus’ little sister, Noah Cyrus, is in trouble after appearing to lash out at Candace Owens and calling her a racist slur.
Last week, Owens critiqued a Vogue photoshoot that featured pop star Harry Styles wearing a dress.
“There is no society that can survive without strong men. The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men simultaneously that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack,” Owens wrote on Twitter. “Bring back manly men.”
In response, Style shared a photo of him wearing effeminate clothing while eating a banana with the caption: “Bring back manly men.”
Noah Cyrus then decided to defend Styles by calling Owens a racial slur. Commentator Rob Smith posted a screen capture of the Instagram story that Cyrus posted, which featured Styles wearing a dress, and she wrote, “He wears this dress better than any of u nappy ass hoes.”
She deleted the post not long after and issued an apology, claiming that she didn’t know that the word “nappy” was racially insensitive and that she was “mortified” by the words she wrote just hours earlier.
“I am mortified that I used a term without knowing the context and history, but I know now, and I am horrified and truly sorry,” she posted on an Instagram Story. “I will never use it again. Thank you for educating me. I in no way meant to offend anyone. I am so so sorry.”
Cyrus’ apology contained no mention of Owens’ name.
Owens shared a video on her Instagram calling out to Cyrus, saying, “Please do not ever in your over-privileged life think that I will allow that statement to go by, unchecked. Also, who knew Hannah Montana had a sister?”
The word “nappy” has historically been used as a derogatory term to describe the hair of black people.
As a result, hundreds of people on Twitter have condemned Cyrus for using the racial slur, even though many of them were not huge fans of Candace Owens.
