They can't let it go...
Sinead O'Connor has written another open letter to Miley Cyrus. As you may recall, the feud between the two kicked off when O'Connor wrote a letter to Cyrus warning her about the of the exploitations she potentially faced in the music industry and expressed concern that Miley was under those kinds of influences, which prompted Miley to point out O'Connor's previous mental health issues. The two have gone back and forth since in open letters and Twitter remarks, with the latest showing that Sinead is upset over Miley's refusal to apologize for mocking her mental health.
I hear you've asked "Are we supposed to kiss?".. when someone asked you would we ‘make up'. No, worry not.. there's no need for kissing.. But let me state again.. You're supposed to apologise for the mocking of any person who sought help, publicly or privately, to prevent themselves from committing suicide.
You're also supposed to apologise for mocking people who are mistakenly or otherwise perceived to be mentally ill. Because what you did is extraordinarily dangerous as it contributes to the silences which allow suicide to flourish and also contributes to the bullying of people perceived mistakenly or otherwise to be mentally ill. That bullying causes suicides. Thats why you're supposed to apologise. Its really very simple. People die every day because of the type of thing you did.
Its not that hard to say sorry. Doing so will save lives.
