Miley Cyrus came under fire on Sunday after a video showing the actress/singer joking about smoking marijuana at her birthday party made the rounds online.
However, a rep for Miley tells Access Hollywood that the 19-year-old star’s remarks were in jest.
“The cake was a joke and Miley was being sarcastic,” a rep for Miley told Access on Sunday. “It is being completely taken out of context.”
In the video (obtained by The Daily), Miley can be seen laughing with friends before thanking revelers for a cake featuring the face of reggae icon Bob Marley, saying, “You know you’re a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake — you know you smoke way too much f***in’ weed.”
Earlier on Sunday, Kelly Osbourne, who threw the birthday bash for the former “Hannah Montana” star, was quick to defend her friend, taking to Twitter to tell followers the cake and subsequent comments were simply making light of Miley’s highly-publicized salvia incident in 2010.
“Let me make something very clear after Miley Cyrus’ salvia incident we started calling her bob miley as a JOKE!” Kelly Tweeted on Sunday. “The cake was also A JOKE! It makes me sick that Miley Cyrus’ so called ‘friends’ would sell her out and lead people 2 believe she is someone that she is not!
“U guys if Miley Cyrus is not recording/filming/touring she is works everyday how could she possible do all that if she was a stoner! #think,” she added.
