When Miley Cyrus posted a photo (below) wearing nipple pasties as an homage to Joan Jett, a stream of vitriolic comments started amassing on the Instagram picture.
It wasn’t the fact that her breasts were on display that fueled the hatred. Or the fact she was sticking her middle finger up. For some reason, this “news” has outraged many because Miley Cyrus did not shave her underarms. Apparently some aren’t aware that it’s normal for hair to grow out of a woman’s armpit.
Despite what Photoshop will have you believe, the armpits of grown women aren’t naturally a fuzz-free zone.
It seems Miley's followers aren't aware of this fact. “Shave your pits,” demanded one follower. Another decided to unfollow the singer due to her underarm hair: “Reasons I unfollowed Miley #1: armpit hair”. “Eww.com,” moaned another.
Miley is the queen of shock value. She’s the good Disney girl gone bad. These days, the crotch-flashing, nipple pastie-loving Miley wild child is unrecognisable from the “Party in the USA” teen queen of yesteryear. (Post continues after gallery.)
After everything Miley’s done – from her tongue-thrusting twerking with Robin Thicke at her unforgettable VMAs performance, to speaking publicly about using deadly drugs such as MDMA – who would've thought that it would be her armpit hair that would cause such a fuss?
Don’t you think that Miley’s “J” nipple pasties, S&M-inspired photo and defiant “rude finger” are far more eye-catching than her wispy, pale armpit hair?
