This became a very big deal. People analyzed it to death. “What’s wrong with Miley?” “What does this mean to society?” I’ll tell you what’s up with Miley. She’s got an acute case of being a 20 year old international pop star. I didn’t love the performance, although she showed the world how a real pro twerks. The tongue was very distracting, but the only crime here was the fact that it didn’t really highlight how talented and able Miley is.

Things didn’t go well for Paula Deen in 2013.

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
Was it really that shocking? Offensive? Surprising?
