Fans and concerned parents were enraged when a video of Miley Cyrus allegedly admitting to smoking marijuana surfaced over the weekend. Miley, who was currently celebrating her 19th birthday, was caught talking about being a “stoner” and “smok[ing] way too much f–king weed” when she was presented with a Bob Marley cake. 

On Sunday, pal and fellow party guest Kelly Osbourne took it to Twitter to clear Miley’s name. The TV show host tweeted:

the cake was also A JOKE! it makes me sick that @MileyCyrus so called ‘friends’ would sell her out and lead people 2 believe she is someone that she is not!

Was Miley really joking? Here’s what our readers had to say:

James said: “I don’t think she was joking.”

Anne said: “So, is Miley a liar or just really not funny?”

Amanda wrote on our Facebook: “Frankly Kelly Osbourne, your opinion means F–K to me!”

Jeralin told us: “Like Kelly Osbourne is a justifiable back up….?…!!! NOT!”

However, some of you were quick to side with Kelly’s claim as well.

Maricelle said: “No! It was a joke, don’t make more than what it was…a joke!”

Laquita said: “Watching the video, it was obviously a joke & if you were really listening then you would have known that.”

Christine wrote: “It was a joke!! Hahahah love u Mileyyyy!”

Whether Miley was joking or not, her comment certainly caused an uproar on the internet. While celebrating her 18th birthday last year, the starlet was filmed smoking salvia out of a bong. Although salvia is legal, the incident nonetheless caused a backlash from the public. 

Was it all just a joke gone out of hand? We still want to here from you!
