The pop singer tweeted a photo of theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss, along with the word “beautiful.” On the photo is one of his quotes that reads, “You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements (carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, all things that matter for evolution) weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in stars. So forget Jesus. Stars died so you can live.”
But Cyrus’ Christian fans were livid that the star would tweet a photo that said the words, “forget Jesus” and slammed the singer.
“So you are no longer a Christian? Forget Jesus??? Seriously? What has happened to you out there in the famous world? What????,” one person wrote.
Another told the singer to simply “Go to hell.”
Cyrus, who has come under fire in recent years for her increasingly risqué choices and possible references to drug use, said Tuesday that she had “bad dreams all night.”
“How can people take the love out of science and bring hate into religion so easily,” she wrote. “It makes me sad to think the world is this way. Like Einstein says “Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.”
