Miley Cyrus Responds to Jesse Helt Criticism, Blames Media For Her Mistake

by at . Comments

In case you're not already aware: Miley Cyrus brought a "homeless" man to the MTV Video Music Awards as part of her annual stunt spectacular and it backfired in countless ways:

For starters, no one explained to Miley that when people use the term "homeless youth" they're not referring to 22-year-old unemployed models.

Yes, Jesse Helt was never homeless. This, according to his mother who says Jesse had a home and family waiting for him in Salem, Oregon, should he ever decide to give up on his career goal of landing a modeling contract in LA.

After that bombshell revelation, we learned that there are several warrants out for Helt's arrest, as he apparently burglarized a home and then refused to complete his community service or fulfill the requirements of his probation.

But Miley says all of this is unimportant, because there are homeless people, y'all and won't someone please think of the children? Or something:

"The media never fails to disappoint," Miley tweeted yesterday. "You've chosen to go after Jesse instead of covering the issue of homelessness...While they obsesses [sic] over one mans legal issues, lets help the other 1.d million homeless youth."

So to recap: Miley scooped up a good-looking guy at a homeless shelter like he was a cute puppy, and used him in a publicity stunt.

When the press pointed out the many ways in which that's so, so wrong instead of blindly praising her as some sort of twerkin' Mother Teresa as she hoped, Miley had an opportunity to admit that she probably should've thought things through, and there are better ways to bring attention to a cause.

Instead, she decided to just hide behind her good intentions and basically blame the media for homelessness. 

And you thought the Robin Thicke debacle was the most classless thing she'd ever be involved with:
