Miley Cyrus is no stranger to controversy, and her left-wing views on social and political issues are well-documented.
For years, Cyrus has advocated for abortion rights, and recently, even promoted products to raise funds for Planned Parenthood.
The 26-year-old singer has partnered with fashion designer Marc Jacobs, who created a sweatshirt featuring Cyrus. Proceeds from the sale of the sweatshirt through the Happy Hippie Foundation will be donated to Planned Parenthood.
In a tweet announcing the sale of the shirt, Cyrus quoted the tagline featured on the sweatshirt, “Don’t F*uck With My Freedom.”

Prior to revealing the sweatshirt, Cyrus tweeted out a disgusting photo promoting abortion. The photo featured Cyrus licking a cake with the words “Abortion is Healthcare.” She also included the hashtags #WomensRightsAreHumanRights and #DONTFUCKWITHMYFREEDOM.

However, Cyrus is now taking heat from both sides of the abortion debate over the photo.
A feminist baker who calls herself “The Sweet Feminist” took issue with Cyrus’ photo, claiming the cake was a direct theft of her cake creation.
“It is a direct theft of my own original art work from May 2018, with no credit,” she argued. “It’s literally my exact handwriting, message, and concept. Swipe for comparison! Cake art is for everyone, but this is inexcusable.
Cyrus apologized for the oversight, saying she was not aware that someone connected with the photoshoot created the cake. She offered to give her credit. However, The Sweet Feminist, Becca Rea-Holloway, says her response is “not sufficient.”

Last night, HB314 passed Alabama’s Senate. It is now the most restrictive anti-abortion law in the country – it makes abortion a felony at conception, punishable by up to 99 years imprisonment (note: the governor has not signed this law yet. *Abortion is still legal in Alabama*, and this law will be challenged). One thing that’s been bothering me a lot lately (other than the systematic degradation of our collective right to bodily autonomy) is the willingness of some to write off the states where these laws are passing. If you’re writing off these states as “backwards”, or calling for a general boycott (which organizers on the ground are saying is not a good idea) you are also saying that you are willing to abandon the residents of those states who do and will need access to abortion. Abandoning Alabama, or Georgia, or Ohio will not save you. It just feeds into the false narrative that abortion access is only for some. Abortion access should not depend on geography. If you buy into the idea that Alabama and other states like it are “backwards”, you erase all the factors that shape lawmaking there (like: disenfranchisement and voter suppression, racism), as well as the people who are on the ground working towards reproductive justice. If we are willing to abandon the residents of Alabama, or Georgia, or Ohio, we are complicit. It’s not enough for abortion to still be accessible for some. It must be safe, legal, and accessible for everyone. Today is a good day to donate to @yellowfund, @sistersong_woc @ppse_advocates #thesweetfeminist #sweetfeminism
Pro-lifers decided to chime in on the picture as well, for much different reasons.
I was on the fence about this until I saw Hanna Montana licking a cake like a horse. pic.twitter.com/eJVxOeLiif
