Miley Cyrus is facing major backlash this week for comments she made about hip-hop in a recent profile for Billboard.
While discussing why she decided to change her sound for her upcoming album -- which she says will be more countrified and less "Bangerz" -- she lobbed a few generalizing bombs towards the hip-hop community.
Here's the exchange from the interview:
Unsurprisingly, that didn't sit too well with many who read it. Twitter was flooded with comments from many who believed she appropriated black culture, only to diss it when it was no longer profitable for her.
Miley herself has not yet responded to the criticism.

Ironically, Miley Cyrus is pulling a "that's why you ugly, anyway!" on hip-hop after spending years trying to get its approval.— Keith RC (@kreid_c) May 4, 2017

Miley used hip-hop/blk people to distance herself from her Hanna Montana image. Her proximity to black people was a marketing gimmick.— Bobby Buenosdias (@bringouttheweed) May 4, 2017

Folks are rightfully pissed at Miley cause she literally used hip-hop to further her own agenda and now is throwing it under the bus. https://t.co/r0htdZMfnA— Bizarro New Day (@3BlackGeeks) May 5, 2017
