Singer Miley Cyrus was trolled for a post she shared on Instagram on Monday following Sunday’s Texas church shooting. After a man named Devin Kelley opened fire inside First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, killing 25 people and leaving 20 more injured, Cyrus took to Instagram to highlight that the “terrorist act” was performed by a “White American Man”, reports DailyMail.com.
Fans commented on Cyrus’ post bashing the pop star for putting emphasis on the race, nationality and gender of the shooter, but Cyrus clarified that was her intention.
“I am aghast by the reaction of my latest post, it is completely amazing to me how defensive and in denial this country really is! (sic),” she wrote in another Instagram post, adding, “BUT those things absolutely matter when...someone completely legitimate is running for president (versus someone who isn’t), when a car runs over innocent people while professing their love to a GOD different from yours, it sure matters to the cops when they beat or even kill innocent people of color, it even matters at the airport/on an airplane or in immigration when folks are completely profiled & judged for their background (sic).”
