THG Asks: Does Miley Cyrus Deserve Criticism Over the Bong Video?

THG Asks!

Welcome to THG's new feature, in which two of our celebrity gossip experts debate topical issues in the entertainment world and you decide who wrote the winning argument!

Today, THG Asks: Does Miley Cyrus deserve the criticism over her infamous bong video?

YES by Hilton Hater

Legality does not equate to morality. At age 18 and partying in California, no one can argue that Miley Cyrus wasn't within her rights to smoke salvia out of a bong.

But is that the only criteria by which we judge celebrities, whether or not they can get arrested for an act?

Miley isn't stupid. She's aware that cameras follow her around and that her fans are mostly young girls. In exchange for the popularity and money she's earned in her career, is it really too much to ask to refrain from harmful acts in public?

The law isn't the issue here. It's the impression Cyrus gives off. Heck, she could star in an adult film tomorrow and police couldn't do a thing. But would supporters back this decision, as well, simply because Miley isn't violating any laws?

NO by Free Britney 

Some people, including my colleague Hilton Hater, have it out for Miley Cyrus. They scrutinize everything she does until they find something to whine about.

Surely Miley could be smarter about some decisions. That makes her no different from any teen. In this case, though her actions were harmless and LEGAL.

What youngster doesn't experiment in their formative years? People quick to bash Miley should look in the mirror, and be thankful she isn't doing much worse.

Just because she's a star doesn't make her a role model 24/7 (parents need to step up if kids really think this), and even if it did, this wouldn't be THAT bad.

The only real question here: How's the view up there, Bill O'Reilly? Like what you see, Dr. Drew? Hilton Hater? Wonder what it's like to sit atop such a high horse.

THG Asks you ... does Miley deserve criticism? Who won this argument?

THG: ABSOLUTELY NOT! Miley has the right to explore and experience most anything as any other free person on this planet.
Boy...If only we could view everyone elses lives through the media microscope. Every last one would fold like an envelope...So much easier to point fingers at others---isn't it? I guess that way you don't feel quite so bad about the things that YOU do,huh?
Sad,sad,sad...
Let the Supergirl live a little. She's earned it. She works hard,she's a young adult,she likes to party a little bit---who didn't at her age? What's so wrong with that??
So, NO---I do not think that Miley deserves any criticism for this. She's just trying new things...
Later all; Hollywood---out...

I think if Miley would just address it and admit that what she did was wrong and everything, I wouldn't care at all. Seems like she isn't going to do that though...
In the video she says "I need to do more of this stuff," or something like that. Sounds like she wants to do more of it to me!
Yeah, it isn't the worst drug in the world, it isn't illegal, but it's still a drug! Miley was acting like this super-innocent disney chick that kids could look up to. Now we all know she's just a fake.
Though it was pretty funny to watch hehehe :)

Miley Cyrus made a bad choice and she does deserve SOME criticism for it, but people shouldn't stay on her for ti for the rest of her life.

This girl is headed for a Whitney Housten future except Whitney was talented. I don't consider pot to be a big deal but Miley is a celeb and the young celebs party hard. If she's at celeb parties, then she is around cocaine, heroine, crack, crank, LSD, meth, shrooms, etc. Pot and alcohol are just the appetizers. This girl seems like she has no limits and possibly an addictive personality. It won't be long before we see her strung out on something. She's already starting to look kind of crackulated.

I see both sides. But I'm gonna say Hilton Hater, becaue I do believe the stuff MC has done lately is for attention, especially that dress she wore with no bra that revealed side boob. SHe knew what she was doing. I don't care that she smoked a bong. Whatever. I just care that she said "It’s not something I’m afraid to say because I think I’m going to sound hypocritical at some point but drugs are for idiots and I'm never going to be that person." and then she turned around and let her friend film her smoking a bong.

i just wanted to say that people only look at her as a famous girl and not as a normal girl that is growing up, haves problems like everybody else and wants to experiment! please people dont tell me that u guys have NEVER done anything bad in ur life..! yes its not a good thing to do bong but if she wants well let her, is her life!! bsides paparatzy and the diverce have been making her crazy.. she needed something to get it out of her sistem, maybe is not the best way but hey! we've all done things that we r not proud off..! i still LOVE miley cyrus! shes an excellent singer and actress and i dont know her in person but my guess shes a pretty good person!

Hilton Hater might have most vote, but it's defintly NOT true that she deserves critcsm, she's going through something really hard, and just leave her alone!
How would you guys react if everything was going down, and your parent's were fighting, and hater's are getting on your nerves (just like Hilton Hater) give her a damn break!
Miley & Free Britney all the way :)
