This probably isn't good for business.
Hollis Jane was one of the dancers who was in a bear costume for Mileybird's VMAs performance. And while she might not have had a problem with Miley's foam finger antics, she's got a much bigger problem with how she was treated.
"I will be the first one to tell you that standing on that stage, in that costume was one of the most degrading things I felt like I could ever do. I realize not everyone shares my opinion and I might just be young and naive, but I feel like the acceptance of this kind of treatment has got to stop … I had never been in a performance where I was purely meant to be gawked or laughed at. I will never forget that performance because it is what forced me to draw my personal line in the sand. After our first dress rehearsal in the costumes with the crew, publicists, performers etc watching us, I walked out of the Barclay Center shaking and crying. I was being stared and laughed at for all of the wrong reasons. I was being looked at as a prop…as something less than human."
Yikes! We hate that someone had to go through such a horrible moment!
We doubt Mileybird meant any harm including little people in her performance, but maybe this will give her another perspective.
Perhaps she should just stick to wagging her tongue and twerking her booty for now??
