Miley Cyrus Receives Pre-Oscar Death-Threat Tweets
Taking guesses here: about how low does wishing death upon Miley Cyrus rank among the internet's great achievements in trolling?
And here, we thought Bieber Fever got people a little loco.
Whatever your opinion, that's what the ex-"Hannah Montana" star and Disney darling coped with before she and her boyfriend, 19-year-old "The Hunger Games" co-star Liam Hemsworth, dealt with before attending Sunday night's Academy Awards. A user apparently using the handle "@thecyrusslut" got vicious enough that the abusive little troll wished Cyrus dead, reports E! Online today. The tweet with the death threat can no longer be found, but there is this little gem:
@MileyCyrus dresses like white trash, she's so fucking hideous. Do you get dressed in the dark Miley?— Miley you're amazing (@SorryMileyCyrus) February 26, 2012
Give Cyrus this much: she didn't bend low enough to reach the troll's level when replying.
@TheCyrusSlut U have nothing better 2 do than hate? That saddens me. Im surrounded by love Im sorry 4 whatever happened 2 make u so bitter.— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) February 26, 2012
Nevertheless, she still expressed an urgency that Twitter could use some policing against threats like these.
@MileyCyrusBz I wont tolerate someone telling me 2 die. I think Twitter needs to take some responsibility and make it a safe environment!
