The "Nothing Compares 2 U" hitmaker took to her personal website to address Miss Cyrus with another note entitled "Kissing Miley Cyrus.. 5th Open Letter.. Suicide Prevention."
Miss O'Connor addresses the 20-year-old singer once again urging her to apologize to those who have suffered from mental illness in reference to Miley's remarks about Sinead and Amanda Bynes.
The 46-year-old singer wrote:
I hear you've asked "Are we supposed to kiss?.. when someone asked you would we "make up." No, worry not.. there's no need for kissing.. But let me state again.. You're supposed to apologize for the mocking of any person who sought help, publicly or privately, to prevent themselves from committing suicide.
You're also supposed to apologize for mocking people who are mistakenly or otherwise perceived to be mentally ill. Because what you did is extraordinarily dangerous as it contributes to the silences which allow suicide to flourish and also contributes to the bullying of people perceived mistakenly or otherwise to be mentally ill. That bullying causes suicides. That's why you're supposed to apologize. It's really very simple. People die every day because of the thing of thing you did.
It's not that hard to say sorry. Doing so will save lives.
