Miley has been accused of appropriating vegan culture and even "faking" being vegan.

Miley Cyrus has received backlash after announcing that she's no longer vegan because of the negative impact it had on her health.

The 'Midnight Sky' singer is a well-known animal lover, rescuing several animals (she has 44 pets!!) over the years, and becoming vegan in 2013. But during an interview on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast on Wednesday (Sep 2), Miley confessed that she had given up her strict vegan lifestyle in 2019 after developing intense hip pain that she believes was because of her diet.

"I was vegan for a very long time and I’ve had to introduce fish and omegas into my life because my brain wasn’t functioning properly," she said.

Miley's first non-vegan meal was actually grilled fish cooked by her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth, who she separated from in August 2019. She added: My ex-husband cooked me some fish on the grill. I cried, like, for a long time. I cried for the fish… it really hurts me to eat fish."

The Hannah Montana actress has now added more meat and gluten into her diet, and her health has drastically improved. She said: "Now I’m so much sharper than I was and I think that I was, at one point, pretty malnourished."

Well, Miley might be feeling better, but she's now receiving criticism from the vegan community for abandoning her vegan diet and "spreading misinformation".

Whilst Miley hasn't responded to all the criticism, she anticipated the potential "terrifying" backlash she was about to receive during the podcast. She said: "They're going to come for me but that’s okay. I'm used to people coming for me."
