Actress Evan Rachel Wood is the latest celebrity to get herself in some hot water over an errant tweet. On Thursday, Wood got some backlash from followers for a tweet suggesting Miley Cyrus may be gay because of her new pixie cut.
“I called it! Miley Cyrus is leaning toward gay,” Wood posts in a tweet that has since been deleted.
Later, she follows up with a series of posts explaining that she was only joking.
“Ok. To be clear. I believe you should be able to joke and have a sense of humor about everything,” she writes. “And i hate explaining, but just to be clear, i dont judge people on how they look. Nor do i associate a hair style with sexuality. I myself am bisexual and have always ‘joked’ about miley giving me gay vibes. Not a bad thing! Just an observation. So i ‘joked’ when she cut her hair that it supported my case. But, i am not so close minded or into stereotypes or labeling. It was a joke. Period. could care less what gender she was attracted to. But dont hate me for supporting her in whatever She chooses. Its all fine by me. That is all.”
Cyrus, meanwhile, seems totally fine with Wood’s comments, tweeting to Wood, “well said! ???” and “Let’s be friends.”
