Miley Cyrus announced that she’s no longer vegan because of the negative impact it had on her health. After the announcement, the singer has received a major backlash for appropriating the vegan culture.
The singer has been a well-known animal lover and for rescuing several animals over the years, and becoming vegan in 2013. She has total 44 pets. During an interview with Joe Rogan, Cyrus confirmed that she had given up her vegan lifestyle last year after developing intense hip pain that she believes was because of her diet.
“I was vegan for a very long time and I’ve had to introduce fish and omegas into my life because my brain wasn’t functioning properly,” she said. She added: My ex-husband cooked me some fish on the grill. I cried, like, for a long time. I cried for the fish… it really hurts me to eat fish.”
The singer has now added more meat and gluten into her diet, and her health has drastically improved. She said: “Now I’m so much sharper than I was and I think that I was, at one point, pretty malnourished.”
After this statement, she received major backlash and people started calling her out on Twitter. Take a look at it below.
So today Miley Cyrus went on the world’s biggest podcast to say that she needed to start eating fish to get “omegas”.
Vegan or not, you should be mad about scientific misinformation being spread to millions.
Here’s an actually *scientifically correct* thread about omegas.

Fuck Miley Cyrus for not being vegan anymore. Fuck her for spreading miss information about how vegan Omega 3 works. Ugh, she has such a huge platform, what she’s doing in incredibly detrimental to the cause.

Beyoncé wore a fur coat to a vegan restaurant and Miley Cyrus was probably never vegan. The vegan community must stop being so desperate for “celebrity” approval. Veganism is a deeply personal ethical choice. It’s not a flavour of the month trend or diet.
