Miley Cyrus slams 'Supergirl' for its gender-specific title

Pop star Miley Cyrus recently did an interview with Variety where she came out as pansexual, or someone who can be attracted to anyone regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

She also took swings at the CW show "Supergirl" and its gendered title.



“I think having a show with a gender attached to it is weird,” Cyrus said. “One, it’s a woman on that f--king billboard — it’s not a little girl. Two, what if you’re a little boy who wants to be a girl so bad that this makes you feel bad? I think having a title like ‘Supergirl’ doesn’t give the power that people think it does.”

The producers of the show responded with a statement, saying they will continue the gendered TV show.

“We continue to be proud of this show. We continue to be proud of Melissa and the character she represents and the hero that she represents. We stand by the show!”
