Singer/actress MILEY CYRUS has been slammed by a consumer watchdog in the U.S. for failing to wear a seatbelt in a scene in her new film HANNAH MONTANA/MILEY
CYRUS: BEST OF BOTH WORLDS CONCERT TOUR.
The scene in question features the 15-year-old pop sensation and her country singer dad Billy Ray Cyrus in the back of a Range Rover – with neither of them wearing their seatbelts.
And the pair have been heavily criticized by Consumer Reports for setting a bad example to Miley’s young fans as a result of their lack of car safety.
In a post on the watchdog’s online blog, the group says: “It seems to us that Miley, her father, and Disney had a perfect opportunity to help influence teens and counteract-rather than encourage-this trend.
“Then again, as Hannah (Miley) herself sings, ‘Everybody makes mistakes.'”
