One thing you never do is rub a country’s flag up against your rear end when in that country on stage, as along with many other things, it shows a complete lack of disrespect. This is how the Mexican state legislature saw Miley’s recent behavior while on stage Tuesday during her concert south of the U.S. border, according to the New York Daily News on Sept. 18.
It seems the state legislature in Mexico is requesting that the Mexican Government go after Miley and penalize her for having one of her dancers take the Mexican flag and seemingly wipe her butt with the country’s pride and joy. The 21-year-old twerker got into her twerking stance and while still bent over the dancer rubbed that flag along her rear end, as shown in the video above.
CNN News reports today that Miley offended fans at the concert and this act has “prompted a federal investigation.” CNN describes Miley being “spanked” on the butt with the Mexican flag and citing how Mexican law is very strict around showing their flag disrespect.
So far there is no word on the Mexican authorities putting Miley in jail, but the state legislator has voted unanimously to condemn the incident. State representative Francisco Trevino spoke to CNN and said that he was offended and annoyed at Cyrus who not only mocked and made fun of the Mexican flag, but she did so on the country’s Independence Day.
This incident happened on the first of her many appearances in Mexico with her “Bangerz Tour 2014” and with other gigs scheduled in Mexico, she’s there for the authorities to come and get if they do decide to show her the inside of a Mexican jail cell. Does this mean she’ll need to be looking over her shoulder?
The concert Tuesday night was in Monterrey in the northern state of Nuevo Leon. Miley could be fined $1,200 and detained up three days in jail over this ordeal. Trevino, a local Mexican lawmaker, stressed how serious an offense this was in their country.
Miley’s act consisted of sporting a plastic prosthetic butt, bending forward and twerking as a bare chested dancer rubbed her bubbled out rear end with the Mexican flag. Whether the country penalizes her or not, that was above being inconsiderate, it was outright disrespectful to the people in the audience and the citizens of Mexico.
Can you imagine the uproar in the U.S. if a performer from Mexico, England, France or any other country got on stage in the U.S. and rubbed Old Gloria across their backside? People would boycott any more concerts from that performer if it ever were to happen in this country.
Why does Miley think she has the right to demean the Mexican people in that way? She’s known to push the envelope, but this time she went way too far.
