Miley Cyrus Makes Date Rape Joke At London Gay Nightclub: VIDEO


During her performance at the London nightclub G-A-Y this last Friday, shock-rocker Miley Cyrus made a joke about gays and date rape:

“You know, everyone’s a little bit gay… It’s the truth. Everyone says everyone’s gay, all it takes is one cocktail… And if that doesn’t work, sprinkle something in their drink. That’s what I always do.”


Considering that she manhandled a female little person and pretended to suck on a giant inflatable dong during the show, her date rape joke might have been the least offensive thing.

Daily Dot writer Celeste Mora called Cyrus’ joke ”tasteless and hurtful” adding:

Miley probably doesn’t know this, but a recent review of US studies conducted between 1989 and 2009 found that 43 percent of lesbian, gay, and bi-identified women reported some kind of sexual assault in their lifetime, and 30 percent of gay or bi-identified men. And a review of trans studies in the US showed that half of trans-identified people have been sexually assaulted in their lifetime.

Cyrus has previously shown appreciation for her gay fans by getting a small marriage equality tattoo on her finger and condemning Rick Santorum’s anti-gay politics.

  1. She's an annoying classless twit. I give her career a few more years and then people will be bored of her. I must admit "Party in the USA" is my guilty pleasure.

  2. It was a joke. The fact that it would be an awful thing to do was the point. You can joke about anything - murder, whatever. It's how you do it. And that was not so bad. The word police are killing me - really it get's hard to take. Everyone is dying for an opportunity to show that they're morally superior. And if the opportunity doesn't present itself, one can be fabricated.

  4. @MarkT perhaps you should reflect on your own reaction to this story and your desire to defend the use of rape jokes... Just sayin'

  5. Harmless. It used to be the few beers myth. Now it's the really works meth.

  6. She was at GAY/Heaven before. When she had her short lived "new image" as sex-kitten. Now she struck gold with her shock/grossness act, and I think that new reincarnation has a much shorter life span.

  7. Jokes are jokes. Period. People need to stop wearing their hearts on their sleeves.

  10. Is she popular? I mean, really?

  11. It's not a date rape joke, it's just a joke. Does anyone think she was serious? Get over it!

  12. Yawn. I've made the same kind of joke about 1000 times and it didn't mean anything.

    Posted by: Hrm | May 13, 2014 3:08:34 PM

  13. @david, it would have been "15 minutes" if she hadn't been famous for the last decade already. It's very easy to call someone a has-been when you're a never-was.

  14. Do I think she's always the epitome of taste - no.

    Do I think she's anything to worry about - no.

    We got bigger fish to fry - now grab a skillet.

  15. shock-rocker?

  16. I give her career another 10 years.

  17. Imagine. Someone was offended. Someone who's group supplies their paycheck was offended. What-a-surprise.

  18. Is Dan Villarreal going to do a post in favor of rape as a "queer" expression of sexual desire? The guy is so morally bankrupt, so lacking in character, and so desperately needs to be seen as an outrageous provocateur, that this surely should be the next frontier he crosses.

    Shame on Towleroad for hiring this guy. Knowing how he contributed to antigay hate around the world and how he mocked the memory of Tyler Clementi, it is painful to see his name in print here.

  19. Dearest Devon, eat my penis.

  20. are we sure Danny isn't a lesbian. I mean he is so humorless, holier than thou and school marmy.

  21. Yawn. The culture of entitlement and offense continues. I assume gay people used to have a sense of humor, but now that we're mainstream the culture is an endless pastiche of tone-deafness, outrage, and thought policing. It's toxic. We used to be fun.

    Posted by: David | May 13, 2014 10:09:04 PM

  22. OH, so Dan can say "PENIS" and we can't? How is that Andy?

    Posted by: WTF21 | May 13, 2014 10:56:04 PM

  23. Stupid, but not the stupidest thing I've heard today.

    Posted by: Randy | May 14, 2014 4:02:57 AM

  24. "Shock-rocker"? Oh please... if the world of music is so tame that Miley Cyrus is considered shocking we might as well all just give up.
    I couldn't care less about her tasteless joke, and neither should anyone else.
