Sinead O'Connor Pens Fifth Letter to Miley Cyrus
Sinead O'Connor has written yet another open letter to Miley Cyrus this week, urging the avid-twerker to apologize for an insensitive -- and frankly, quite bitchy -- tweet poking fun at mental illness.
In a post titled "Kissing Miley Cyrus.. 5th Open Letter .. Suicide Prevention," O'Connor penned her fifth (yes, fifth) message to Cyrus on her website, reading:
Dear MileyPreviously, Cyrus touched based about her ongoing feud with the Irish songstress during her appearance on TODAY, telling anchor Matt Lauer, "I don't know how someone can start a fight with somebody that's saying, 'Hey I really respect you and I really love what you did.' 'You know what? You suck!' And that was kind of crazy."
I hear you’ve asked “Are we supposed to kiss?”.. when someone asked you would we ‘make up’. No, worry not.. there’s no need for kissing.. But let me state again.. You’re supposed to apologise for the mocking of any person who sought help, publicly or privately, to prevent themselves from committing suicide.
You’re also supposed to apologise for mocking people who are mistakenly or otherwise perceived to be mentally ill. Because what you did is extraordinarily dangerous as it contributes to the silences which allow suicide to flourish and also contributes to the bullying of people perceived mistakenly or otherwise to be mentally ill. That bullying causes suicides. Thats why you’re supposed to apologise. Its really very simple. People die every day because of the type of thing you did.
Its not that hard to say sorry. Doing so will save lives.
The 20-year-old added, "I'm a big fan of hers and so it doesn't really matter ... It's all good. You can write as many open letters as you want."
Well, clearly O'Connor is doing just that.
