White Flag Rejected: Sinead O’Connor wants a proper apology from Miley Cyrus

Pictures1Sinead O’Connor has once again demanded an apology from Miley Cyrus.

The ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ hitmaker penned a fourth open letter to the 20-year-old star on Tuesday, hitting out at Miley for calling her ”crazy” during an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today Show on Monday, and urging her to be more supportive of people battling mental health issues. Here’s where Miley said what she said.

In the lengthy Facebook post, the Irish star wrote in response: ”You’ve said on Matt Lauer’s show (where you again refer to me as ‘crazy’) that you don’t understand why I have been upset with you. My problem with you stems from your response to my first letter.”

It also seems Miley’s fans on Twitter turned on Sinead when the feud started, and now, O’Connor has revealed she received hurtful tweets and threatening comments from Cyrus’ fans.

In the fourth open letter, she writes:

“As a result of what you did, I have had numerous communications from people urging me to commit suicide. Not to mention, I have been the subject of literally thousands of abusive articles and or comments left after articles, which state that I and therefore all perceived mentally ill people, should be bullied and be invalidated.

“Luckily I am a strong person. And I have four children whose lives would be destroyed if I were to buckle under the abuse you set me up for. If I were not, and/or I did not have four children, these types of communications and these types of articles and remarks could have had their desired effect.

“I might add my children have been extremely upset by the nature of media attitudes toward their mother on the grounds their mother is (falsely) believed to be mentally ill.”

She went on to share a number of statistics relating to suicide and depression, and reiterated her demand for Cyrus to apologise for mocking her, imploring the pop star to “please do the right thing”, adding, “You will actually save lives by doing so. There are people who will Not die tonight, if you are brave enough to state that there is nothing whatsoever wrong with any person seeking publicly or privately, help, in order to stay alive.”

Oya now! Miley, APOLOGIZE already! Haba! How hard can a well-drafted speech by your publicist be? Or a suitably apologetic tweet from you?
