Stroke Association Questions Miley Cyrus, SNL for Disrespectful Tongue Reference

by at . Comments

She's Twerked into Robin Thicke's crotch.

She's ridden a wrecking ball naked.

She's exposed her nipple and her landing strip in a series of racy Terry Richardson photos.

But a national organization is calling out Miley Cyrus not for any of those stunts... but for one line she uttered while hosting Saturday Night Live last week.

During the cold open of the latest SNL (above), Miley said she often sticks her tongue out because "I'm having tiny strokes, yo," a line The Stroke Association did NOT find funny.

"Having a mini-stroke is no laughing matter," wrote the England-based company in a statement." Around 46,000 people in the UK have a mini-stroke (Transient Ischaemic Attack) each year, with one in ten leading to a major stroke."

The Association went in to say Miley and the show's writers did not even have their facts correct.

“Sticking out your tongue is not a sign of having a stroke," the statement continues. "Instead think FAST. If a person’s face starts drooping, they can’t lift their arm or they can’t speak, it is time to call 999.  Having a stroke is a serious medical emergency. With the right care and support, as well as compassion from those around them, people can make fantastic recoveries."

That's all good to know.

But was Miley's stroke quip out of line?
