Corey Feldman may have tuned out the backlash, following his ‘Today’ show performance, but not everyone is. Miley Cyrus, for one, isn’t happy with the haters, so she stepped up to tell them to back off! See her sweet message in support of Corey here!
Miley Cyrus, 23, is SO not here for the hate. The singer quickly jumped on Instagram to Corey Feldman’s defense after she caught on to the vicious comments said about the rockstar’s performance of his new single, “Go 4 It” on the Today show on Sept. 16.
The “Adore You” singer shared a heartfelt pic on her Instagram account on Sept. 22, of a very meaningful quote in reference to Corey. “We put ourselves out there and we did the best that we could,” the quote read. SO sweet! She also accompanied the graphic with an even nicer caption, telling Corey to shake those haters off. “Haters gonna Hate! Lovers always gonna Love,” she wrote.
“Thank you and your angels for sharing your music with us! Please enjoy life and continue to make art!” Miley, who is no stranger to criticism, also commended him for ignoring the negativity and focusing on his gifts as an artist. “You’re absolutely right to ignore (even though it can be hard) the hurtful comments made by uninspired people,” she continued. “F*ck judgment! You have more courage than any of those hatin motha f*ckas!!!!” She concluded the note by wishing him a successful career. “Good luck to you and always dream big! I know that’s what always keeps me smiling,” she said. Awww!

Good luck to you and always dream big! I know that's what always keeps me smiling ❤️💚💛💜💙
While Corey was initially quiet when the backlash first started rolling in, he joined The Talk on Sept. 20 to address the negative responses to his performance. “I wanted people to see the real emotion I was feeling,” he told the talk-show hosts. “I wanted people to see, I am not fake; I am a real person and this affects me. I am made of flesh and blood and emotion.” While he initially was drawn to tears by the horrible cyber-bullying, he seems to have a different outlook on it now. “Art is subjective; not everyone is going to like what I do. And for those who don’t, they’ve got Bon Jovi,” he added. “Those 10 million views are going to add up, so thank you to the haters!”
Miley joins Pink, 36, Tamron Hall, 46, and Corey’s costar in Stand By Me, Jerry O’Connell, 42, in celebrities who have stood up for Corey. Since Corey first performed his single, it has shot up to #32 on the charts! So it looks like Corey is getting the last laugh. Bye haters!
