Miley twerked up some of backlash last night during her MTV showing with Robin Thicke. Where do you stand?

Many things are up for debate when it comes to last night’s VMAs—who dressed the best. Whose voice soared the highest. Things of that sort. But what’s for certain is who walked away as owner of the evening’s biggest WTF?!? moment. That goes to Miley Cyrus, for her trippy, sex-charged performance with grown man R&B stud Robin Thicke.

So, yeah. There’s Miley, 20, in a nude two piece twerking and grinding all up on a willing Thicke. All in good fun, sure. But was it in good taste?

The Parent Television Council took exception to many of the VMAs’ performances. In a press release. PTC Director of Public Policy Dan Isett went at Cyrus specifically, saying, “MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate ‘twerking’ in a nude-colored bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds?"

"The Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke performance simply substituted talent with sex," the release continued.

For what it's worth, neither Rihanna nor One Direction seemed too tickled by Miley's moves either.

Now we ask you: How did you react to Miley getting nasty? On a scale of zero to to “Yuck,” let us know in the poll below. 

By the way, if you’re not down with what Miley’s on, she’s got two long fingers for you. Gotta love the youth!
