Is Miley Cyrus Responding to "Ashamed" Bear Dancer With Instagram?


A dancer involved in Miley Cyrus' VMA performance recently wrote an open letter stating that the performance made her feel "ashamed of being a little person." 

Miley has yet to directly respond to the controversy, but she did take to Instagram to post a telling pic.

In the photo, Cyrus is shown hanging out (what appears to be pre-show) with three little people dancers. She's braiding one girl's hair. The picture was accompanied by: #aslongasmybitchesloveme.

We're guessing that an ambiguous Instagram is probably not enough for aspiring actress, Hollis Jane, who said she was "shaking" and "crying" after the VMA performance.

She explained of the experience:

"I was a bear in Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance and it was my first time doing anything like that…anything where I was being used because of my height, not because of my talent.

"And I will be the first one to tell you that standing on that stage, in that costume was one of the most degrading things I felt like I could ever do." 

She also said she thinks that the "We Can't Stop" singer is using little people in her performance to draw attention in a negative manner.

"We can all agree that right now all Miley Cyrus wants to do is make society’s jaw drop," Hollis said. "So what’s more 'weird' or 'freaky' than having little people parading around in your show?

"As someone who is trying to make it as a serious actress in this industry, not just trying to 'be famous' or make money, there is nothing more frustrating than this stigma."

We aren't in your shoes, Miley, but a simple "I'm sorry" usually goes an awful long way…
