Evan Rachel Wood - Evan Rachel Wood Takes Aim At Twitter Critics Over Miley Cyrus Joke

Actress Evan Rachel Wood has defended a joke she made about Miley Cyrus' sexuality following a backlash from the former child star's fans.
The Hannah Montana sensation shocked fans by chopping her long hair into a short pixie crop last month (Jul12) and Wood, who is bisexual, took to Twitter.com to joke, "I called it! Miley Cyrus is leaning toward gay."
The post sparked a series of criticisms from the star's followers, but Wood fought back on Thursday (23Aug12) by explaining her comment was made in jest.
She writes, "Ok. To be clear. I believe you should be able to joke and have a sense of humour about everything. And I hate explaining, but just to be clear, I don't judge people on how they look. Nor do I associate a hair style with sexuality.
"I myself am bisexual and have always 'joked' about Miley giving me gay vibes. Not a bad thing! Just an observation. So I 'joked' when she cut her hair that it supported my case. But, I am not so close minded or into stereotypes or labeling. It was a joke.
"I could (not) care less what gender she was attracted to. But don't hate me for supporting her in whatever she chooses. It's all fine by me."
Cyrus was obviously not offended by the remark - she reached out to Wood to become friends on the social networking site.
Wood added, "Now Miley Cyrus and I are friends. Let this be a lesson to all of you."
