Miley Cyrus disses Urban Outfitters, gets political on Twitter

Miley Cyrus: Singer, actress, politically active Twitter user.

The “Party in the U.S.A” singer used the social media tool to take a stand against hipster clothing retailer Urban Outfitters, which, as the Post’s Elizabeth Flock reported, has been was accused of stealing a jewelry design from an independent artist.

After tweeting, “Love that everybody is hating on Urban Outfitters,” one had to wonder, “Why is that, Miley?”

Not only do they steal from artists but every time you give them money you help finance a campaign against gay equality.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply


"IF WE ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE NEXT THING U KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING GOLD FISH" - Rick Santorum UO contributed $13,000 to this mans campaignless than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

Miley is right — sort of. Richard Hayne, co-founder and president of the company, has contributed over $13,000 to former senator Rick Santorum’s campaign and Political Action Committees. And while I couldn’t find Santorum saying anything about gold fish, he did say marriage is “not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing.” This 2003 statement caused Dan Savage to inspire fans to create a very unpleasant definition and Google search result for Santorum’s last name.

I guess Cyrus, who turned 18 last year, won’t be voting for Santorum should he (and the Post thinks he will) run for president.
