Miley Cyrus has just announced that her Happy Hippie Foundation non-profit organisation has partnered with Planned Parenthood and Marc Jacobs to create a "special" collection. The "Cattitude" singer has been very vocal about her stance on reproductive rights, especially in light of the anti-abortion laws coming into effect in the US.

In true Miley fashion, she made the announcement on Instagram alongside a photo of herself licking a giant cake that read: "ABORTION IS HEALTHCARE." She also shared images of herself wearing only two oranges as nipple covers.
Together, Miley and Marc Jacobs have created a bubblegum pink hoodie featuring her topless picture with the words "Don't Fuck With My Freedom" on it. The lyric is from her song 'Mother's Daughter', a song on her new She Is Coming EP. The back of the sweatshirt reads: "Miley Cyrus x Marc Jacobs," and all proceeds go to Planned Parenthood.
However, as always on the internet, someone's always got something to say. Miley had to fight off comments from pro-life trolls, who (poorly) attempted to drag her beneath the image.
One wrote: "So selfish! Killing people is healthcare? Maybe for you females but ripping hands and legs off an unborn baby isn't really healthcare for a baby. Start being responsible for other people."
But Miley had the best response, hitting back: "don't bust your nut in our cunt without consent in violent manners and then we can produce life when we fucking want to."
Alas, that wasn't the only controversy caused by the cake. Becca Rea-Holloway, or The Sweet Feminist, hopped straight into the comments to call out Miley for stealing her design. Becca claims that she had produced the original "cake art" in May 2018 that had been used for Miley's photo.
Miley quickly apologised for the mistake and said she would tag Becca in the photo on her Instagram page, before reassuring her that the cake was not used in the hoodie designs.
However, that wasn't enough for Becca who would like to be compensated for the "theft" of her design.

@mileycyrus just announced a collaboration with @marcjacobs @plannedparenthood @happyhippiefdn using this image. It is a direct theft of my own original art work from May 2018, with no credit. It’s literally my exact handwriting, message, and concept. Swipe for comparison! Cake art is for everyone, but this is inexcusable.
