Miley Cyrus has been blasted by a health organisation after joking that 'tiny strokes' are the reason why she sticks her tongue out so much.
Miley made the comment while trying to explain her trademark pose when she hosted 'Saturday Night Live' last weekend.
She has now been accused of trivialising the condition by the UK-based Stroke Association
Member Patrick Olszowski said: "Having a mini-stroke is no laughing matter. Around 46,000 people in the UK have a mini-stroke each year, with one in ten leading to a major stroke. Sticking out your tongue is not a sign of having a stroke.
"Having a stroke is a serious medical emergency. With the right care and support, as well as compassion from those around them, people can make fantastic recoveries."
