Alcohol Awareness Group Says Miley Cyrus' Illegal Underage Drinking Puts Safety Of Young People At Risk! Do You Agree?

miley cyrus, miley cyrus drinking

Given Miley’s status as a role model to many youngsters, her beer swilling in Madrid may be encouraging other young people to drink!

It has barely been 24 hours since singer and actress Miley Cyrus was spotted downing a beer at a club in Madrid and already people are taking the 17-year-old to task! TMZ reports the International Institute for Alcohol Awareness is concerned Miley’s boozing could encourage other youngsters to engage in, “risky behavior associated with underage alcohol consumption.” Looks like you’re not being the greatest role model once again Miley!

A rep for the group went on to say, “The young people that see her as a role model could mimic the same behavior and as a consequence will go out and become intoxicated, putting their safety at risk.”

In a shocking statistic, reports say 85% of young people drink simply to get intoxicated!

I BLAME THE RONALD REAGAN ADMINISTRATION FOR RAISING THE DRINKING AGE TO 21.

PEOPLE USED TO DRINK AT 18 DURING THE 1960′S UP UNTIL 1984.

How is it illegal when she’s doing it in a country where she IS legal to drink? Gosh HWL, u really try way to hard to make this poor girl look bad. At least she’s not having an emotional break down and is in rehab!

Europeans handle acohol much better than we do in North Amercia. It’s kind of stupid that you can get your drivers license or killed in the line of duty before you can legally have a drink.

I kinda think she could negatively influence teens but it’s not like they don’t try this already. Oh and the stat on teens drinking to get drunk…everybody generally drinks to get drunk. Not like alchohol actually tastes good.

Oh and we wouldn’t know this fact about Miley and be worried about how her behavior influences teens if Blogs and entertainment shows didn’t talk about it. Why report it at all if people think her bad behavior will negatively impact kids?

Is sipping one cheap Mexican beer enough to start getting international organizations involved and the entire English speaking world excited about another star’s impending downfall, or do we just know so well by now, from so much prior experience, that this the point at Miley’s career where she’s supposed to self-destruct that we read auto-aggression into any minor slip-up?

Uhh.. The LEGAL drinking age in Madrid is 16. So it’s perfectly legal for her to drink all she wants. If anything I would say the press is more influential to kids, stating false information and blowing up the story like its dooms day. Get your facts straight please!

To be perfectly honest, it doesn’t matter if Miley had a beer in her hand or not. Teenagers have been smuggling alcohol and drugs longer than I have been alive. This is NOT news and this is complete BS. Miley isn’t going to influence teens to do something they most likely are already doing! Seriously, is it a slow day for you guys?

First of all, she’s a teenager and even though she is in the spotlight, she is still going to do the things that teenagers do. Also, parents need to realize that THEY should be their childrens role models and quit letting the job rest on the shoulders of celebrities their children have never met. People need to get of Miley’s a**…..just because she is a REAL teenager living her life and not some kind of fake person like some of those other Disney Princesses acting like they are a f*****g saints.

Looks like you’re not being the greatest reporters once again Hollywoodlife.com!

stop sayin illegal underage drinking you morons! its legal in spain! or do you go round showing pics of 18-year-olds who drink in mexico and call them illegal drinkers, too?

wtf is wrong with you people? dont you have real stories to “report”?

and btw i doubt miley is gonna be responsible for those 85% because they already drink! its not like theyve just started because they saw miley do it.

that “alcohol awareness group” should – if they wanted to actually change something – deal with the reasons WHY teenagers drink, go change laws or something and stop bitching about this girl, who has not even drunk illegally! some people are just too thick to get it :S

this story is every where. cut her a break. it is no big deal everyone does it at her age. it’s a beer she was caught with, ONE beer. to put more things on her shoulders saying she can be responsible for younger generations indulging in risky behavior b/c she is a role model is ridiculous. girls going through a lot already, damn.

well ppl dont know much bcuz first of all in europe most of the drinking ages ARE NOT 21 they go as low as 14 like in Albania. so in europe its not iilegal for her to drink depending on the country shes in. and idk who in their right mind would be doin stuff that celebs do bcuz really us non celebs do crazier stuff than these ppl do honestly . i drink on my own terms not just cuz someone in the spotlight does it come on. if u want proof of legal drinking ages for all countries i think they are all on the age of consent website.
