Miley Cyrus is in the news again. Practically everyone knows by now that the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer flossed her fake plastic butt with the Mexican flag–while performing on stage in Mexico. Is the girl stupid? Is she really that disrespectful? Or is this simply more of the ‘shock value’ she’s successfully used to ramp up her career since twerking at the 2013 VMAs? Oh, and to top it all off–it was Independence Day in Mexico–akin to our 4th of July. How might Americans react to a half-dressed (or less) singer having her butt flossed with the American flag?
The Wire is reporting that not only were Miley Cyrus’s actions disrespectful–they were illegal, too. In fact, they report, far less objectionable desecrations of the Mexican flag in recent years have led to steep fines. There is now some question as to whether concert promoters Zignia Live might pay the price for Miley’s actions.

According to Milenio.com, however, Zignia Live is pointing fingers at Miley Cyrus and claiming they aren’t responsible.
“The artist brings his show and actually we can not as promoter interfere in what he does… the truth is that this issue in particular is talking to her to have a little more care and will not be repeated in other cities,” Dante Guillen, manager national press and promotion for Zignia Live, told Milenio.com.
There’s even been some speculation about jail time for Miley Cyrus.

What do you suppose Billy Ray Cyrus is telling his little girl about her behavior in Mexico? Come on, Billy Ray–you can’t condone this one.
