Noah Cyrus has issued an apology after being called out for using a racially insensitive word on social media. The singer had taken to her social media to support Harry Styles’ latest controversial Vogue cover shoot.
Harry became the first solo male cover star for Vogue as he donned a beautiful ensemble of a Gucci jacket over a dress. However, according to commentator Candace Owens, she wants to bring back manly men. Something which we do not understand to this date.
Celebrities supported Harry one after the other as they adored the singer for making a statement with his ideologies. Noah was one of the many who showcased her support for Harry. She posted a picture of Harry and captioned, “”he wears this dress better than any of u nappy ass heauxz.”
This led to her facing backlash for using a racially insensitive term, “nappy”. This word is a historically negative reference to natural Black hair textures. The singer was criticized quickly for her choice of words. A Twitter user wrote that white people need to stop using words that they hear from black people.
The user added, “y’all don’t even be knowing the meaning y’all be saying it just to look cool it’s aggy.” However, the singer apologized as she wrote on her Instagram story how mortified she is that she used the term. She admitted she did not know the context and history of the term but she is aware now.
The singer shared that she is horrified and apologized for the term. She added, “i will never use it again. thank you for educating me. i in no way meant to offend anyone. i am so sorry.” Along with users, Candace also came over the comment as she slammed the singer.
The author wrote, “Care to explain to me how @noahcyrus calling me a ‘nappy ass hoe’ is not racist? I’m all ears. You guys love cancel culture.” She then tagged Noah’s big sis Miley Cyrus and said, “come get your sister!”
Harry had recently defended himself from Candace’s comments over his Vogue cover. The singer reclaimed the phrase and used it as a caption for his new Variety photos writing, “Bring back manly men”.
Several celebs backed him, including Tan France, Olivia Wilde, Jameela Jamil, and to everybody’s surprise Logan Paul, who said, “What is ‘manly’ to you? What does it mean? Is manly being comfortable in your own skin and being comfortable with who you are, regardless of what you’re wearing?”
Zach Braff shared how their whole lives boys and men are told that they need to be manly. He added, “Life is short. Be whatever the f–k you want to be.” Harry’s mom also came to her son’s rescue and agreed that people should be able to wear whatever they like.
“I think maybe I had something to do with it,” his mother Anne Twist said the British daytime show, Lorraine. “I was always a big fan of doing fancy dress with them when they were smaller, which [Gemma] hated, but Harry always embraced.” Harry and Noah are nominated for the 2021 Grammy Awards.
