Miley Cyrus’ Foam Fingering Sesh Gets A Wag Of The Finger By The Inventor Of The Foam One!

Miley Cyrus certainly had a very touching performance at the VMAs, but there was one guy especially who was not touched by her use of the foam finger.

In fact, he blasted it!

Steve Chmlear invented the now famous “No. 1 hand” when he was 16 years old as a way to support his high school basketball team at the Iowa state championships in 1971.

So when Miley got handsy with some foam at the VMAs, Steve was quick to point out that, unlike eating a Reese’s, there is a wrong way to use a foam finger:

“I would say that it certainly misrepresented its intent to encourage team support. She took an honorable icon that is seen in sporting venues everywhere and degraded it. Fortunately, the foam finger has been around long enough that it will survive this incident. As for Miley Cyrus, let’s hope she can outlive this event and also survive.”

We hope the foam finger will survive this incident as well, and is at least washed afterwards!

Likewise, we can understand how the whole rub sesh might have rubbed Steve the wrong way. Not a shocker there!

Meanwhile, if this is what Miley is capable with a foam finger, we do NOT want to know what she’d do onstage with an actual wrecking ball.
