Lots going on in Miley Cyrus' life right now. She's become a visual artist (gluing weed to vibrators). She's got these unicorn pajamas. And she's being investigated by the Mexican interior ministry after her dancers whipped her fake ass with the country's flag during a concert in Monterrey.
You can see the incident in the video above starting at about the 2:20 mark. Cyrus, wearing a large prosthetic ass, starts twerking on her backup dancers, at which point they produce small Mexican flags and start whipping her like a racehorse.
Some in the Mexican government are not pleased. Per the AFP:
A spokesman for the interior ministry told AFP the probe was launched Wednesday at the request of the Nuevo Leon state congress, which accused Cyrus of desecrating the flag.
The spokesman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said "the company that brought her here would be sanctioned, not her" because it was the organizer's responsibility to agree with Cyrus the content of the concert.
During that session of the state congress in Nuevo Leon (which contains Monterrey), a conservative lawmaker named Francisco Trevino Cabello accused the dancers of "cleaning [Cyrus'] backside" with the flag, which he said shows a "lack of respect." Cyrus has not commented on the matter, though I'm willing to bet she respects ass above all.
Cyrus could face a fine of $1,270 or potentially three days in prison, but she'll be fine. She'll definitely be fine. A day after desecrating the Mexican flag with her prosthetic ass, she performed a second scheduled concert in Monterrey. Here is an Instagram from backstage of that show. It's of her prosthetic ass.
