Miley Cyrus -- Under Fire for Beer Consumption

11/6/2010 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miley Cyrus put herself and others at risk this week by indulging in that ice cold Corona at a nightclub in Spain ... this according to an international alcohol awareness organization.

Even though officials in Spain told us 17-year-old Miley didn't break any laws ... the head of the International Institute for Alcohol Awareness, James E. Copple, is concerned other young people will follow her lead and engage in "risky behavior associated with underage alcohol consumption."

Copple tells us, "The young people that see her as a role model could mimic the same behavior and as a consequence will go out and become intoxicated, putting their safety at risk."

Copple noted ... according to his organization, "85% of young people who drink, drink to get intoxicated."

So we gotta ask ...

she didn't break any laws

correct?

now that guy Copple should move to change the Law instead of taking the shortcut and involve a famous girl (which is easier, isn't it?)

I wanna know if this Copple guy gets paid for what he does and if he gets paid why there is no "move" to change the Law in Spain?

go to work

Although what she has done is legal, there's no doubt this train wreck is just leaving the station. In all cases, it up to the parents to educate their children about these issues. The easy was would be to just show them pictures/video of Lindsay Lohan, Brittany Spears, River Phoenix, etc...

So she has a couple of beers. No big deal. At least she's not snorting cocaine and spreading her legs and telling everyone to come and get it.

Miley = Lindsey
Trish = Dina
"hill"billy ray = as much as I don't like Michael, I don't know if I would stoop that low.

Redneck = whitetrash.

Meh    

She's rich and living the life of a skank. Her choice...drinking, using drugs, and sleeping with anything that moves just like Paris Hilton. At least she won't feel any pain when she pops out a kid.

She looks horrible and she acts like a common streetwalker.
Miley Cyrus is NOT a celebrity. Why does the media insist on including her? She doesn't want to be a role model, so get her out of the light.

Holy smokes what a lot of pressure to put on a 17 year old girl. Maybe if parents took any kind of interest in what their kids do they wouldn't be relying on a teenager's behaviour to lead their children. Since when has it become Miley Cyrus' job to raise our kids? Believe me being taught good values and common sense when the kids are young will mitigate any negative influence a pop star could possibly have on them later on.

If the media hadn't put that picture ou there, who would have known about this...there would be no "immitating" of Miley. Let her hve a little fun out of the spot light.

"Even though officials in Spain told us 17-year-old Miley didn't break any laws"

Wait, didn't you want to sell us yesterday it was against the law???

"the head of the International Institute for Alcohol Awareness, James E. Copple, is concerned other young people will follow her lead"

So actually TMZ, the site who spread this 'Miley drinks beer' story is aiding to corrupt our youth. Nice.
