This is really sad to hear.

The drama just won't stop.
It seems like Sinead O'Connor will continue sending open letters to Miley Cyrus, demanding apologies from the star for publicly mocking mental health issues in front of all her impressionable fans.
And you know, nothing compare 2 a lil' persistence!
Now, just to catch y'all up to speed, the first letter Sinead sent warned Miley of the exploitations she faced in the music industry. When Miley responded with a brigade of twitter attacks on her mental health, Sinead then sent a second and third letter threatening legal action if said tweets weren't removed. And then in a fourth letter, the 90s alt-rock singer explained her own situation behind those two-year-old tweets, as well as a need to handle mental health situations more delicately.
In this fifth letter, Sinead demonstrates the dangers she believes Miley is allowing to happen by failing to publicly apologize for her behavior.
I hear you’ve asked “Are we supposed to kiss?”.. when someone asked you would we ‘make up’. No, worry not.. there’s no need for kissing.. But let me state again.. You’re supposed to apologise for the mocking of any person who sought help, publicly or privately, to prevent themselves from committing suicide.
You’re also supposed to apologise for mocking people who are mistakenly or otherwise perceived to be mentally ill. Because what you did is extraordinarily dangerous as it contributes to the silences which allow suicide to flourish and also contributes to the bullying of people perceived mistakenly or otherwise to be mentally ill. That bullying causes suicides. Thats why you’re supposed to apologise. Its really very simple. People die every day because of the type of thing you did.
Its not that hard to say sorry. Doing so will save lives.
We have to admit, as much as we adore Miley's buisness skills and take-charge attitude, something should be said for the mocking of mental health. That shiz isn't just irresponsible, it's downright not cute!
What do U think she should do??
