Even with Miley gaining a record-breaking level of buzz on Twitter, not all of it was in her favor. Who are some of the famous haters of her performance?
Kelly Clarkson, who caught some of the broadcast while she was in Chicago, tweeted this little gem:
Just saw a couple performances from the VMA's last night. 2 words…. #pitchystrippers

James Van Der Beek took a shot at the foam finger Miley used as a sexual prop:
Things I learned watching the #VMAs2013: There's nothing you can do with a foam finger that you can't air on MTV.

Newswoman Mika Brzezinski has been especially vocal about the suggestive performance, going as far as to label the set “disgusting.”

Political commentator Bill Maher, rarely afraid to speak his mind, gave his thoughts on the show:
Watching VMAs. Haven't been in a strip club in a while, but good to see nothing has changed

Bethenny Frankel felt Miley was too young and impressionable, obviously being misled by those around her:
. @MileyCyrus is 20 yrs old & getting bad direction. Granted she has to agree, but someone choreograped it & designed that bear.

Joan Rivers lashed Miley in her signature sharp-tongued style:
What do I think about Miley Cyrus at the VMAs? After watching her performance, I need an antibiotic…and she needs the morning-after pill.
