Miley Cyrus Speaks Out on Marriage Equality Tattoo

Miley Cyrus Speaks Out on Marriage Equality Tattoo

Miley Cyrus caused a spark of controversy with a tattoo that reads ‘All Love is Equal’ last year.

Now, the 19-year-old actress is addressing what happened and her view on marriage equality on

She writes, “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do—you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach.

“When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, “All LOVE is equal,” a lot of people mocked me—they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?”

Miley added at the end, “This is America, the nation of dreams. We’re so proud of that. And yet certain people are excluded. It’s just not right.”
