Sinead O’Connor Threatens to Sue Miley over Offensive Tweets

Matt Dekneef

Nothing compares 2 this celebrity feud.

In a must-read rant by Sinead O’Connor, the late ‘80s/early ‘90s singer went off on Miley Cyrus after the 20-year-old made fun of her mental illness yesterday, comparing tweets she made about two years ago to recent posts by Amanda Bynes.

Miley then said she was too busy with “Saturday Night Live” this week to entertain Sinead, but that she’d be willing to sit down and make time for her soon if she wants to meet. (This is also when she simultaneously posted a photo of Sinead infamously ripping up a photo of the Pope on “SNL” and telling her to see a psychiatrist ASAP.)

What started as Sinead’s unsolicited advice to the former Disney star that she not let the music industry “prostitute” her quickly spiraled, crashed, and then exploded into multiple fiery directions—the shrapnel of topics included mental illness, nervous breakdowns, Amanda Bynes, cyber bullying and sexual abuse by Catholic priests.

In three Facebook posts within the past 24 hours, Sinead, taking offense to Miley making fun of her during a severe mental breakdown, began her takedown of the “Wrecking Ball” singer by saying she has “no interest whatsoever in meeting” and then railing her for not deleting the offensive tweets. It actually left Sinead so irate, she threatened to sue Miley for defamation.

“Miley… Really? Who the f*ck is advising you?” Sinead wrote. “Remove your tweets immediately or you will hear from my lawyers.”

Anyway, it’s a lot to cut and paste—and excerpting every single highlight wouldn’t really do the diatribes justice—so click here (and here and here) to read in full what she had to say.

We will leave you with this one sentence that summarizes Sinead’s scorn: “You can take five minutes today between g-string f*ckin’ changes to publicly apologise … to Amanda and myself and all mental health sufferers as well as all who were abused by priests that will end that matter as far as I am concerned.”

Sinead, +1.
