Twerk princess Miley Cyrus has an unlikely ally in her corner — Angel Haze. The New York rhymer went on Twitter Friday (Sept. 6) and fired off some angry tweets at the media for their criticisms of Cyrus’ infamous performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

Cyrus’ titillating antics at the VMAs has generated plenty of angry commentary including a disparaging column by Washington Post’s writer Richard Cohen who believes the singer’s performance will “not only objectify women but debased them.” He also attempted to connect her twerking to a culture of misogyny that he blames for the Steubenville High School rape case.

In a series of tweets, Haze writes that she’s tired of being asked about Cyrus and her twerking performance at the VMAs. She especially took aim at Cohen’s column and urged critics to leave the ‘We Can’t Stop’ singer alone.

“Recently been asked about @MileyCyrus way too much. Was particularly perturbed by the whole washington post thing,” she wrote. “Let me just vocalize how utterly f—ing stupid I think it is for a national news publication to post that her dancing is why things like Steubenville happen.”

She then added:

While Cyrus has yet to respond to Haze’s tweets, she has previously admitted that she knew her VMAs performance “would make history.”

The 20-year-old singer also clapped back at vocalist Skylar Grey for her opinionated tweets of her performance. Cyrus tweeted:
