Miley Cyrus Banned From Performing in Dominican Republic
By Shannon Carlin
Miley Cyrus said it couldn’t be done, but it seems she can be stopped, will be stopped by the Dominican Republican.
As the Associated Press (via Billboard) reports, the Dominican Republic commission that oversees public performances has banned Cyrus from playing Santo Domingo’s Estadio Quisqueya on September 19.
In a statement, the commission said they cancelled the show because Cyrus “undertakes acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law.” We’ll assume this has something to do with her penchant for weed emblazoned bodysuits and inflatable hot dog riding.
Cyrus has yet to comment on the ban based on moral grounds. She is set to play four additional shows in South America this September making stops in Brazil and Chile, all of which are still set to happen.
Recently, parents questioned whether Cyrus was actually safe for TV after a concert special that aired on July 4th weekend featured doing a sexy dance with a man dressed like Abraham Lincoln.
Three viewers filed complaints with the FCC over Cyrus’ actions. One wrote, “Her performance was impropriate [sic] for broadcast TV, as she grinded along there was a costumed performer depicting President Lincoln following behind her and alongside her and the character acted quite lecherous even patting her on the backside. Very patriotic for the 4th ya think?”
Apparently not everyone buys the excuse that it’s Miley just being Miley.
