Pop star Miley Cyrus fiercely speaks out addressing harassment that happened to her in Barcelona, Spain.
Last Sunday, a video surfaced on Twitter showing the 26-year-old singer making her way through a mob of fans. In front of her was her husband, 29-year-old actor, Liam Hemsworth.
As Cyrus was making her way towards a waiting vehicle, a man is seen aggressively grabbing her and forcing her into a kiss. The singer narrowly avoided the non-consensual kiss that the man was intending to plant. Security guards quickly stepped in and shoved the man away while Hemsworth reaches for his wife.

Now, the star has posted a Tweet in response to the harassment. Cyrus attached a video of both Inside Edition and The Talk discussing the incident. Along with the video, she wrote the message:
“She can be wearing what she wants. She can be a virgin. She can be sleeping with 5 different people. She can be with her husband. She can be with her girlfriend. She can be naked. She CAN’T be grabbed without her consent. #Don’tF**kWithMyFreedom.”
She can be wearing what she wants. She can be a virgin. She can be sleeping with 5 different people.
She can be with her husband. She can be with her girlfriend. She can be naked.
