The ‘Bangerz’ creator shocked everyone at this year’s event, for all the right reasons, when she sent Jesse on-stage to collect her Video Of The Year award.
However, since then, Jesse has been on the receiving end of a lot of negative press, after it emerged that there is a warrant out for his arrest in his home state of Oregon.
Miley has now taken to Twitter to share her views on the matter, choosing to stand by Jesse.
People who are homeless have lived very hard lives. Jesse included.— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) August 26, 2014
I hope that this can be the start of a national conversation about youth homelessness and how to end it.— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) August 26, 2014
Does looking down upon the homeless help people excuse their inaction?— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) August 26, 2014
The media never fails to disappoint. You've chosen to go after Jesse instead of covering the issue of youth homelessness :(— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) August 26, 2014
When he accepted her award, Jesse told the star-studded VMAs audience: “Thank y'all, my name is Jesse and I am accepting this award on behalf of the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the US who are starving, lost and scared for their lives right now.
"I know this because I am one of these people."
As he made his speech, Miley sat on the edge of the stage and began to cry.
Since the ceremony, Miley has been urging her fans to donate cash to an LA-based homeless charity My Friend’s Place.
Elsewhere at the VMAs, there were plenty of shocking moments, including an awkward wardrobe malfunction for Nicki Minaj.
