Cyrus Under Fire for Tweeting, Tattooing Support for LGBT Rights

Miley Cyrus’s new equal sign tattoo sparked discussions on Twitter over the weekend after the 18-year-old tweeted a photo of the ink along with a message: “All Love is Equal,” reported Us Magazine on Sunday.

Many of her followers responded in praise for her perceived support for LGBT rights. However, others challenged the self-proclaimed Christian’s stance, asking where in the Bible “God says homosexuality” is okay. Cyrus responded, “Where does it say in the Bible to judge others?”

According to Us Magazine, the negative reactions to her support for LGBT rights led her to quit Twitter in 2009.

“I said on there that I believed in gay marriage because everyone should have the right to love each other,” she told Parade magazine in an interview. “I got such hate mail about being a bad person.”

While body art isn’t for everyone, there are still plenty of ways to show your support for LGBT equality.
