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!
