Trace Cyrus, brother of singer Miley Cyrus, has come under fire for a recent post on Instagram that appeared to show him with his hand around his fiancée’s throat.


Trace, 29, shared a photo of his partner, 25-year-old Taylor Lauren Sanders, while she was dressed in lingerie with his hand on her neck.

Instagram apparently removed the photo from Trace’s account after some people reported the photo for breaching ‘community guidelines on nudity or pornography’.

Since being notified of the social media company’s decision to remove the photo, Trace has taken to Instagram again to defend his photo.


He wrote:

F*CK ALL U JEALOUS GIRLS REPORTiNG MY PIC OF MY BAE!!! Y r so many of u girls on social media so jealous of a beautiful woman? If you’re not happy with your looks then f*cking do something about it!!! Go to the gym, learn to do your makeup properly, find out about fashions that fit your body type. There’s so much that can be done. But don’t go hating on my girl because she’s hot!!!

There was nothing wrong with the picture I had posted. So many of u miserable girls out there f*cking flagged it so it got taken down!! I believe every woman can be beautiful but JEALOUSY & lack of confidence in yourselves makes u all look disgusting. Stop hating on other girls because of the insecurities you have In yourself.

In December last year, the pair announced they were engaged.
