Halsey has fired back at a troll who blamed Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s break-up on the “Wrecking Ball” singer’s pansexuality.
Cyrus and Hemsworth confirmed on Saturday (August 10) that they are to split after less than a year of marriage.
One Twitter troll had a perverse reaction to the news, claiming that the Black Mirror star’s sexuality was the reason the pair are breaking up.
They wrote: “#MileyCyrus splitting and allegedly cheating on Liam with a woman confirms that you shouldn’t date bi people.
“Not offensive, just true. Bi is greedy and never satisfied.”
Troll called out by Halsey over Miley Cyrus post
The post was roundly called out by Halsey, who is bisexual.
Referencing separate posts from the same Twitter troll venting about Captain Marvel star Brie Larson, Halsey wrote: “Doesn’t surprise me that ur saying this and ur page has u crying about Brie Larson too!
Hey tigerbob. Doesn’t surprise me that ur saying this and ur page has u crying about Brie Larson too! Stop being afraid of women who aren’t afraid to do what pleases them and not other people 🙂 https://t.co/uPyB1cXE0D

“Stop being afraid of women who aren’t afraid to do what pleases them and not other people :-)”
The troll doubled down on their post, however, claiming: “People getting really triggered by facts and life experience. Why so much hate, I only give you the truth. Up to you how you react.”
They added: “Sorry bi people, I am taken. Stop trying to chat me up. Pan (actually bi) people too.”
Miley Cyrus is ‘proud’ about her pansexuality
Speaking in February, Cyrus said marrying Liam Hemsworth has not made her any less queer.
She said: “Being someone who takes such pride in individuality and freedom, and being a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, I’ve been inspired by redefining again what a relationship in this generation looks like.
“Sexuality and gender identity are completely separate from partnership.
“I wore a dress on my wedding day because I felt like it, I straightened my hair because I felt like it, but that doesn’t make me become some instantly ‘polite hetero lady.’ (PS: Straight women are badass, too.)”
Addressing the breakup, a rep for Cyrus told People: “Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time.
“Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart.
“Please respect their process and privacy.”
In a tweet, Cyrus added: “Life’s a climb… but the view is great.”
