Don't Mess with the Mouse
A month ago, Billy Ray Cyrus told GQ Magazine that Disney’s Hannah Montana show was the poisoned apple that broke up his 17 year marriage and set his daughter Miley on the path to ruin. “I'll tell you right now—the damn show destroyed my family.”
This week Billy Ray assured the Sympathy Sisters of The View that Hannah Montana had nothing to do with his family’s troubles. “I love Hannah Montana! I love Disney! That didn’t tear my family apart,” he exclaimed somewhat frantically.
Obviously those thugs at Disney got to him. Was it blackmail? Did they send Vicki Lawrence in with a bat to bruise his kidneys? However they did it, rest assured those fuckers will stop at nothing to protect their interests. Which includes forcing Billy Ray to throw David Lynch under the bus (“I kind of blame it all on David Lynch”) while recanting his denunciation of Miley’s show. The remark is indisputably the media Goliath’s first salvo in the battle to undermine critical reception of Lynch’s unauthorized Goofy bio-pic.
Heaven help this particular David—I don’t think a slingshot will be enough this time.
