Billy Ray Tweets His Reaction To Miley's Bong Video: 'I'm So Sad'

Almost an entire day after video leaked online of Miley Cyrus smoking out of a bong, Billy Ray takes to his Twitter to express his disappointment and sadness — and says he didn’t know

Billy Ray Cyrus, 49, is not a proud papa. The country music star who, along with the rest of the world, watched his daughter, 18-year-old Miley Cyrus take a bong rip of Salvia on a homemade video, shot five days after her Nov. 23 birthday, expressed a sincere apology via his Twitter account for being unaware of his daughter’s outlandish actions.

“Sorry guys. I had no idea. Just saw this stuff for the first time myself. Im so sad. There is much beyond my control right now,” he tweeted.

It’s no secret Miley has always gotten her way being a daddy’s girl, but her smoking experimentation is a big wake-up call that things need to change. Her behavior has continually gotten worse. In an effort to connect with an older audience, she has done everything from dressing provocatively to dating older guys, while ramping up the maturity of her music to rid herself of her good-girl Disney persona.

The Cyrus family, who were firmly planted in Hollywood’s golden spotlight as a perfect celebrity family, was recently knocked off their pedestal. News that Billy Ray and wife, Tish Cyrus were ending their 17-year marriage due to rumored infidelity on Tish’s part with Poison lead singer and reality show star, Bret Michaels, sent shock waves though Hollywood.

Her troubled family life has pushed Miley to new extremes and her bong smoking video is clear cut evidence that she is not receiving the parental guidance and attention she so desperately needs.

Maybe now Billy Ray and Tish will open their eyes and help their daughter before it’s too late.

Miley Cyrus apologized for her bong video. But why she still smoking cigar then if she’s so DAMM SORRY. I actually loved her when she was good no drugs, no ciggarates which CAUSE SO MANY CANCERS SHE’S CRAZY!! I understand that everyone makes mistakes if she smoked a ciggarate like couple of time I would be upset but smoking a bong was out of order. I just never knew she could have turned so bad when sh’s 18. Billy Ray is fantastic dad Miley shouldn’t being stroppy with him DIVORCES DO HAPPEN! Poor Bilyl She needs to stop NOW before she ends up like Whitney Houston on the death bed. I’m so upset in good girl gone bad mIley cyrus

Miley Cyrus was THIRTEEN when she started Hannah Montana. She wanted to be a role model for younger girls when she was doing that, but didn’t you ever think eventually she would want to branch out and figure out who she is as a person? Yeah, she’s a celebrity, but she’s still just a PERSON. Obviously she wasn’t going to be Hannah Montana forever, the show ended because she didn’t want to do it anymore. You’re not her, or directly effected by her. So stop criticizing and deal with your own life.

I don’t think anyone can really understand the pressure someone feels in the world of hollywood . This is sad to see that Miley is trying drugs legal or not she will end up moving on to harder things. I feel for the family divorce will rock your world so will a death of a loved one. I went a little crazy when my father passed away but the whole world didn’t see me make mistakes. She is doing what kids do for attention her world is falling apart. Best of luck to Miley.

Not every teenager does drugs! Tish needs to get her head out of the sky and teach Miley right from wrong 18 or not.

Of course Billy Ray is sad, he spent eighteen years raising her and as soon as she is an adult she does drugs. Even if its legal its still a drug. I was be sad too Billy.

Yes she’s 18 ..But she has been the idol of a young audience everywhere…And this is something she wanted in the past…They made her what she is today…And because of this she owes them some respect …as of late she has not shown any!..For them or for herself…Everything she has done is to show she is 18 and to shy away from here Disney image..She could have acheived this in a much more mature way!..Many have before her and kept the fans respect!..You say its because of her moms actions…her parents have had rough spots in thier marriage before…this is nothing new to Miley!…To keep thier little goose that laid the golden eggs happy they have spoiled her and given in to her to much in the past….Face it people shes just another Hollywood Brat…that took advantage of her fans..forgetting that it is after all the fans that make you or break you…and in her case..set her up on the same shelf that britney is sitting on…

So it’s o.k. for Ms. Perfect Taylor Swift at 19 to date 33 year old JOhn Mayer and now 30 year old Jake Gyllenhaal but let Miley date a guy a few years older than her and she gets craped all over. Hypocrites.

Yeah but Taylor doesn’t wear racy outfits with her tits half hanging out, she doesn’t go into 21+ clubs, or take hits from a bong. And Taylor is a smart, kind young woman who stays true to herself. Miley on the other hand has completely flipped her image since she ditched the Hannah Montana thing.

From a professional POV, probably not a good move. But, from a purely human POV, perfectly normal. Get over it hypocrites, weed is no big deal. Especially compared to alcohol and tobacco.

miley’s parents have never been anything than pimps for her. i am willing to bet that ole billy ray is only acting shocked so he can get his pic in the news yet again.

that’s ok: when this one is burned out they have her little sister to exploit…

I know she’s 18, but she’s also an idol for young girls everywhere. I’m fine with pot smoking, but if you’re in the spotlight and you have young fans, you need to keep it on the DL. She’s just trying to get attention. Next up: sex tape. What, you don’t think it’ll happen? lol

I’m so sick of people saying that every teen does this sh*t. NO THEY DON’T.

All that aside, when you do dirt, even if you’re a normie, you don’t let your friends video you drunk and hoein’. You just don’t. You’re asking to have your life ruined. Reputation is everything. Especially in this day and age with the YouTube and whatnot.

Miley needs to watch who she hangs out with. WHY was her friend even video taping the party/get together??? Her friends have nothing to lose. Miley does. If she wanted to go the skank route, okay. Fine. But establish those fans before you alienate the ones who are paying your light bills. Silly girl.

And dammit Billy Ray; you knew Miley was buck wild when she was taking pics of herself in the shower with a t-shirt on. Come the hell on!

And I’m not trying to be mean, but if they don’t get it together, that little one (Miley’s little sister, whose name escapes me) is going to worse than Miley.

Exactly! Thank you very much for saying that not every teen does this! It’s so true!
Probably only the people who did this as a teen say it to justify their actions.
There are really teenagers out there who have to deal with bigger problems and could’t care less about “things every teen does”.

I don’t think anyone should blame her parents, yes divorce is hard. My parents are divorced and other millions too. It all depends on how a person does it. The “she is doing what every teen is doing” well maybe she is. But that still doesnt make what she is doing and what every other teen is doing right, does it?

what the heck for one saying every teen does this! do you live on same planet as i am? you’re fkin weird if you think that every teen smoke weed and just drink alcohol. i’ve never got a feeling i need to get smoke grass and get head full of alcohol though i’m 19. of course as older i drink sometimes, but within reason and i know my limits. i feel sorry for people like you who thinks it’s normal to do so.

and what kind of friends those are videoing her and then publising it in the net? unless this really is miley’s way to get attention from parents and planned thing. very pathetic at any state. and i hate her super annoying voice.

Parenting is everyday for the rest of your life. Mylie is hurting over her mom’s behavior. Divorce hurt Mylie deeply and she is grieving. She is acting out to get neg attention. We all make mistakes. The wise dont keep doing them. Mylie do country, folk musicHe .be a producer director and make movies that matter. The poptart image fades FAST! Help homless kids in Los angeles. (start a charity) invest wisely. You have made enough money to live off of . so choose your projects wisely! You CAN change the world for good. Hollywood sextizes everyone.
