Mother's Rant Against Miley Cyrus Goes Wildly Viral (Video)

By Susan Duclos

A Texas mother reacted to Miley Cyrus' controversial performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards by  writing and open letter to her 13-year-old daughter and posting it on her blog. The letter garnered over 2.5 million views in the first 36 hours, according to TIME on August 30, 2013.

The picture shown below is the one used on the open letter and the caption reads "Mama must be so proud."

The open letter was written on August 26 and entitled "Dear daughter, let Miley Cyrus be a lesson to you."

"Yes, this is what happens when you constantly hear everything you do is awesome. This is what happens when people fawn over your every Tweet and Instagram photo. This is what happens when no responsible adult has ever said the word “no,” made you change your clothes before leaving the house, or never spanked your butt for deliberate defiance.

If you ever even consider doing something like that, I promise you that I will run up and twerk so you will see how ridiculous twerking looks. I will duct tape your mouth shut so your tongue doesn’t hang out like an overheated hound dog. I will smack any male whom you decide to smash against his pelvis – after I first knock you on your butt for forgetting how a lady acts in public.

Why would I do that? Because I love you and I want you to respect yourself. Miley Cyrus is not edgy or cool or sexy. She’s a desperate girl screaming for attention: Notice me. Tell me I’m pretty. See how hot I am. I know all the guys want me. All the girls want to be me."

The rest of the letter can be read at Roadkill Goldfish, but she concludes with "Dear daughter, I am going to fight or die trying to keep you from becoming like the Miley Cyruses of the world.

 You can thank me later."
