Miley Cyrus is breaking her silence on a scary fan encounter with a powerful reminder that no one should be touched without their consent. 

The 26-year-old singer was forcibly groped and kissed by a male fan while exiting her hotel with husband Liam Hemsworth over the weekend in Barcelona, Spain, where she was headlining the Primavera Sound festival.

A video of the interaction went viral earlier this week amid her press tour for the recently dropped EP “She Is Coming,” which features a slew of female empowerment anthems. 

Cyrus shared a video across her social media channels on Tuesday of a segment from CBS’ “The Talk,” in which co-host Sara Gilbert quoted a comment from a troll on the internet who said the Disney Channel alum “asked for it” because of how she was dressed.

“She can be wearing what she wants. She can be a virgin,” Cyrus wrote alongside the video. “She can be sleeping with five different people. She can be with her husband. She can be with her girlfriend. She can be naked. She CAN’T be grabbed without her consent.”

The “Black Mirror” star added the hashtag #DontFuckWithMyFreedom” a lyric that appears on the EP’s opening track, “Mother’s Daughter.” 

She also shared a screenshot of a handful of disturbing responses about the incident from Facebook comments who placed the blame on her. 

“Don’t fuck with my freedom,” she reiterated, adding “#stillnotaskingforit.”

After the groping incident, an unnamed source told E! News that Cyrus was “certainly unsettled” but was “doing fine now.”
