Miley Cyrus Banned From Dominican Republic for 'Promoting Lesbian Sex'


The National Commission for Public Performances in the Dominican Republic announced yesterday that they would be banning a Miley Cyrus concert next month on morality grounds.

Blabbeando reports:

"The National Commission for Public Performances in the exercise of the powers given by the Constitution of the Republic through Regulation 824 of Law Number 1951Article 4306 - the purpose of which is to prevent public performances that offend the morals, good customs and relationship between friendly countries - imposes this ban based on Miley Cyrus' common engagement in acts during her concerts that defy morals and customs in ways usually penalized by Dominican law," a statement reads.

They add that Cyrus "uses inadequate attire, corrupts language, uses perverse imagery and phrasing, uses phrases with double meanings, glorifies crime, violence and denigrating acts against civility and promotes sex, lesbian sex and the use of inadequate objects in public."

Although homosexuality is not illegal in the Dominican Republic, the country is culturally conservative and overwhelmingly Catholic. 

Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez, a Catholic Cardinal from the Carribean nation who has previously referred to openly gay U.S. Ambassador James “Wally” Brewster as a maricón (Spanish slur for “faggot”), has repeatedly voiced his opposition to gay rights and gay people in general.

  2. I think the story is misleading. It sounds like she is banned for her shows and all things that make religious types cringe, not because she promotes lesbian sex alone.

  5. Trujillo apart from being one of the worst dictators in human history made a good job converting the country in a hole full of conservative hypocrites

  6. I could see banning her for defaming the arts, but why this?

  7. The use of inadequate objects in public?

  8. Miley should be banned for sticking out her yucky tongue too much, but not for lesbian sex.
    P.S. When are Miley and bad boy Justin Bieber going to do a duet together? Perfect for one another!

  9. This is the one time I agree with the Catholic Church. This fake lesbian should be banned everywhere.

  10. She should be banned for being a horrible artist and pseudo musician.

  12. Sometimes homophobia is such a silly misfire that it's almost comic. Not that homophobia is ever truly funny, but this is absurd, almost like a South Park parody of homophobia. Especially in this case given the element of homoeroticism (or just plain eroticism) in DR culture. Kinda reminds me of prudery in Brazil or Italy (oh puh-leeze) or a deeply seated, um, male fraternity in Mormonism.

  13. Hope I never get banned for using "inadequate objects in public." That would be embarrassing at the local cruise park.

    JJ-I was wondering what that meant as well

  15. I was in the Dominica de republica and it's a lot more friendly towards gays then one might think. Then again i was mostly around the resorts. ..

  16. Maybe I'm just that lovable though.

  17. Can we ban Catholic priests for being liars? For being pedophiles? For having secret families? For having more than one secret family? For having male lovers? For having more than one male lover?

    How many reasons does one need to depose Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez?
