Everyone’s Calling Out Miley Cyrus’ Boyfriend, Cody Simpson, for Being a ‘Hypocrite’ With His Instagram Post
It feels like just yesterday when celebrities and fans alike were congratulating Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth on their marriage. Sadly, despite their 10-year history together and on-again, off-again romance, they couldn’t make it work in the end. And while Cyrus initially moved on with Kaitlynn Carter, she’s now totally in love with Australian singer Cody Simpson.
Fans have mixed opinions about Simpson and Cyrus’ relationship. While some are totally supportive of their love, others think it’s a cry for help. And Simpson’s recent Instagram post has both fans and skeptics shaking their heads and calling him a “hypocrite.” Here’s why.
Cody Simpson’s been majorly in the spotlight since dating Miley Cyrus
While some may remember when Simpson and model Gigi Hadid were romantically linked, it’s now Cyrus and Simpson who are heating up. Simpson explained to People that he and Cyrus were friends for years before dating. And while it took them awhile to connect romantically, he thinks they’re both in a good place to pursue their romance.
“The reason why it hasn’t been a really crazy sudden thing is just because we’ve been friends for so long,” Simpson told the publication. He then went on to say that they “found each other again in a space where we’re both not partying, working real hard, and it just keeps things healthy and it’s good. Any girlfriends I’ve had in the past has always been immediate romance and so it’s a different experience having been friends with somebody before and it developing naturally into something more.”
Cyrus also took to Instagram Live with Simpson to explain to her fans that while she didn’t think she’d ever find a good man, she finally has one. “I always thought I had to be gay because I just thought, like, all guys were evil, but it’s not true. There are good people out there that just happen to have d****. I’ve only ever met one … and he’s on this Live,” E! News reports she said.
Simpson posted to Instagram about saving the Earth
Now that all eyes are on Cyrus and Simpson’s relationship, Simpson’s Instagram is getting more attention than ever. Most of his posts appear to be music-related. And of course, he now has a few posts featuring Cyrus. But one of his Instagram posts isn’t anything like his typical content.
“Australia is on fire. Venice is sinking. The system is flawed. Greed has poisoned the minds of world leaders,” Simpson captioned his video post showing what climate change has done to the Earth. “More than machinery, more than economy, we need humanity. What we need is trees replanted. What we need is clean energy. What we need is sustainable industry. What are you doing today to help save our one home—the earth?” Simpson’s caption continued.
Fans are unhappy with the post
Simpson certainly isn’t the only celebrity to talk about climate change. But given how rich both he and Cyrus are, fans are finding it tough to take his post seriously. And some also alluded in the comments of the post that the only reason he’s even posting it is to look good for Cyrus.
“People need to stop flying less for starters – especially first class and private. It’s the hugest fossil fuel suck and individual can do. You are suuuuch a hypocrite,” one of his followers wrote.
Another added, “Really, interesting what are you actually doing today to save the world, a few more selfies maybe!!! Very contradictory.”
“You have this big platform to use and I see you post endless sets of selfies, spending money on tattoos, expensive clothes… living the high life without your shirt on,” yet another wrote. “I don’t know you personally or the way you live, but from this account this is my impression. I wonder what you’re doing other than making this post to help?”
It looks like his followers want receipts to know what Simpson’s actually doing to help the Earth aside from Instagram videos. We’ll see if he keeps posting content like this in the future!
