American singer Miley Cyrus said she was “devastated” after discovering that one of her fans had been murdered in a recent attack.
The former Disney star was told on Twitter about her fan who was allegedly recently killed in a homophobic attack.
“Hey Miley, it’s Gabriel. He was a huge fan of you Brazilian and recently lost his life to brutality. Homophobia. He loved you very much. Get to know him a little bit more, ”a fan told the singer.
Reacting to the news, she wrote: “I am devastated to find that a smile has brutally lost its life due to hatred, judgment and injustice! “
“Calling this disturbing action ‘homophobia’ would mean that the perpetrator had a ‘fear of’ queer people. Which one is [expletive]. These humans [sic] the heart was full of HATE and ANGER, ”she continued in her loaded tweet.
“This is exactly why the importance of my mission to fight this type of cruelty with love, acceptance and FREEDOM is at the top of my priorities and is the purpose of my existence on this planet. I couldn’t imagine if this was happening to one of my best friends… ”she wrote.
“And knowing that this happened to someone who loved me and whom I love in return breaks my heart!” #WeWontLetThemWin, ”she added.
