Sinead O’Connor Pens Fifth Open Letter To Miley Cyrus Demanding Apology

  • Sinead O’Connor isn’t giving up until she gets an apology out of Miley Cyrus for poking fun at her mental health issues. Miley responded to Sinead’s first open letter by dismissively comparing the singer to Amanda Bynes. Sinead’s latest letter implores the pop singer to “apologise [sic] for the mocking of any person who sought help, publicly or privately, to prevent themselves from committing suicide.” I would personally like to see Miley respond in some sort of thoughtful way to this at least, even if she thinks everything else Sinead has said is garbage.
