Miley Cyrus-Feuding Cake Artist Serves Cold Hard Dish Diss To Critics

feminist baker fires back at miley cyrus

The Instagram baker who has accused Miley Cyrus of ripping off her work fired back on Monday the best way she can… with another cake!
Becca Rea-Holloway, AKA @TheSweetFeminist, shares purposeful cakes with feminist expressions to social media, and has recently accused the We Can’t Stop singer of copying her signature style (without credit) in an ad used to raise funds for Planned Parenthood in collaboration with Marc Jacobs.

As we reported, Becca called Cyrus out on IG for “direct theft” of her work (below), reposting the star’s campaign image to promote a fashionable hoodie for a good cause, as well as sharing her own original image:

“@mileycyrus just announced a collaboration with @marcjacobs @plannedparenthood @happyhippiefdn using this image. It is a direct theft of my own original art work from May 2018, with no credit. It’s literally my exact handwriting, message, and concept. Swipe for comparison! Cake art is for everyone, but this is inexcusable.”

Almost immediately, Cyrus caught wind of the drama and wrote an apology on her post:

“Hi, we saw the image online and didn’t realize it was yours. We will absolutely tag you for your work.
This image is not on the Marc Jacobs x Planned Parenthood hoodie we made to raise money and awareness for Planned Parenthood which I know is also close to your heart. It is just on the post and not on the merchandise but we will absolutely tag you and give you the credit for your art. If you could please correct your post, as we’re going to make sure you have all the credit you deserve… thanks for sharing your art and inspiring us. ?

But a tag wasn’t enough. Becca shot back a lengthy response to the apology:

“Hi there, I appreciate your quick response and I’m thrilled that Miley is working with Planned Parenthood to support their incredible work.
While I acknowledge your tag (although it should also be in the caption itself), it doesn’t change the fact that my work was used without compensation and without my consent and it is not sufficient.
My original image was shared widely, but it certainly would not have been difficult for someone on your team to trace it back to the source (this is clear from the number of people who immediately recognized it as my work). This was not an oversight, it was blatantly and willfully neglectful and deceitful.
I would have been more than happy to work with you on a collaboration for this project, but instead my work was just copied without compensation. Someone got paid to make, style, and photograph this cake, and it wasn’t me.
It’s also totally unacceptable that you deleted my comment on the post.”


And it gets worse. Rea-Holloway continued (below), explaining the vicious commenters that the Smilers (ironic, huh?) had been leaving on her posts after her initial now-deleted comment on Miz Cyrus’ post:

“This has also opened me up to incredible vitriol from your followers – I have gotten hundreds of threatening, horrible comments and messages in the past couple of hours for simply pointing out that my work had been stolen. I hope you understand that this sort of mistake has serious, tangible consequences for artists like myself.
Honestly I find it laughable that you think you’re in a position to ask me to edit the language on a post on my own feed advocating for myself in a way that has no incorrect information.”

But that’s not all she has to say! The D.C.-based baker is firing back again after receiving more nasty comments, and this time, she’s doing it with a new cake:

What do U think of the debacle, Perezcious readers? Is it “just a cake” or should she be credited for her work?! Sound off (below) with your thoughts!
