Among all the criticism for Miley Cyrus’ performance at the VMAs, there’s a beacon of hope in her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, who has offered his support in the most dad way possible.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Miley says her dad told her that if twerking had been around when he was singing Achy Breaky Heart and he had a foam finger, he would have done the exact same thing she did.
"Mile, if twerkin woulda been invented…. And I had a foam finger…. I woulda done the same thang you did." – DAD

Thanks, dad! But if I was Miley, I don’t know if I’d want that image floating in my head. Can you imagine Billy Ray slapping his crotch with a foam finger and then twerking up on Robin Thicke? I can and it’s not pretty. Not pretty at all.
