Complex is reporting that the internet was not here for Billy Ray Cyrus’ recent social media postings. What was so controversial it got the people pissed off? His on-and-off-again wife Tish Cyrus posing with the best friend a girl could ask for: a giant Willie Nelson-sized amount of weed.
This was no ordinary amount of weed; this was the type of weed you see in a DEA bust after a months-long investigation involving undercover operatives that leads to the injury of several agents during the raid. This some real drug-dealer type of weed.

Weed so nice, Billy Ray had to post twice.
Tish was quick to get on Instagram and comment that the weed wasn’t hers and she was just holding it for a friend:
“First of all… My husband @billyraycyrus is INSANE, Second, this pictures is also insane, and third this is NOT my weed or my house! hahah. But if it was, that would be amazing for so many reasons!”
Miley Cyrus has been quite vocal about being a huge pothead but then she stopped smoking and we thought, “Oh my god, who will help Snoop Dogg fund the marijuana industry?” Enter Tish Cyrus. Miley revealed in December that Mama Tish “got me back on it” and Miley was smoking the good shit again:
“When I’m working, I don’t think I function at my highest, most intelligent, so I don’t smoke when I work.”
Apparently the times changed for Mama Tish and Miley says she now “smokes more pot than anyone that I know.” She’s not like regular moms, she’s a cool weed-smoking mom. Miley smokes. Noah smokes. We all smoke! If you’re going to smoke weed I’d rather you do it in the house with my huge supply in the industrial-bank-grade safe.
Not everyone was keen on Tish’s coolness, however, and the Internet was quick to point out how many ethnic people are currently in prison for way less weed than Tish’s:

Thousands of Black people are in jail for the most minor weed offenses but Miley Cyrus’ mom can post this on Instagram with no issues. pic.twitter.com/2QpUs13Npy

Think of all the people incarcerated right now on marijuana charges. And you wonder why so many people understand that criminal justice is often neither fair nor just. https://t.co/mKNpzxGEVk

Welp, Tish they really did come for you. But I mean, it’s not that bad. At least you have a way of dealing with all of the white guilt brought on from your immense privilege: smoking a shit ton of weed. I think Billy Ray has a bong you can use.
