Angel Haze may have earned our respect by putting Azealia Banks in her place and now she’s putting her foot down once again, but this it’s to stick up for a fellow artist…kind of. Although she’s tired of people asking her about Miley Cyrus, on Friday she took to Twitter to make it perfectly clear how she felt about Miley‘s VMA performance and critics of the performance too.

Now, what seemed to enrage Haze the most was an article from the Washington Post by Richard Cohen which said:

“I run the risk of old-fogeyness for suggesting the girl’s a tasteless twit — especially that bit with the foam finger (Look it up, if you must.) But let me also suggest that acts such as hers not only objectify women but debase them. They encourage a teenage culture that has set the women’s movement back on its heels. What is being celebrated is not sexuality but sexual exploitation, a mean casualness that deprives intimacy of all intimacy. Cyrus taught me a word. Now let me teach her one: She’s a twerk.”

Wow. Cohen went on to try and blame Miley‘s performance for the Steubenville rape case. Of course, many other journalists and writers were completely outraged by this.
