Evan Rachel Wood Gets Backlash For Joking Miley Cyrus Is Gay

Posted: Updated:

Evan Rachel Wood is the latest celebrity who needs to join the "think before you tweet" club.

The 24-year-old actress got some flak after she joked on Twitter that Miley Cyrus may be "gay," because of her new short hairstyle.

“I called it! Miley Cyrus is leaning toward gay,” Wood tweeted after Cyrus debuted her new ultra-blond pixie cut earlier this month. Fans of the former Disney star were not impressed with Wood's joke, which she has now deleted, and she was forced to explain herself.

On Thursday, Wood wrote in a series of tweets:

Ok. To be clear. I believe you should be able to joke and have a sense of humor about everything. And i hate explaining, but just to be clear, i dont 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. Period. could care less what gender she was attracted to. But dont hate me for supporting her in whatever She chooses. Its all fine by me. That is all.

Cyrus, who seems obsessed with her new haircut, wasn't bothered by Wood's joke and tweeted that the "The Ides of March" star's explanation was "well said," and even extended an offer of friendship, writing: "Let's be friends."

Wood took Cyrus up on her offer and tweeted:
