Miley Cyrus ‘Wrecking Ball’ video ruins Grand Valley State University tradition
By now you have probably seen at least a few seconds of Miley Cyrus’ new controversial music video for her song “Wrecking Ball.” The ripple effect from the ridiculous video has officially reached a bit too far.
Since 1995, Grand Valley State University (Mich.) students have been swinging from a wrecking ball on campus as part of a unique tradition. Thanks to Miley, students have recently decided it is a good idea to swing on the ball naked — like she does in her music video — and post videos of it on social media. On Tuesday morning, the school removed the steel ball. GVSU associate vice president Tim Thimmesch claims the decision had nothing to do with Miley.
“We’ve been reviewing this over the last couple of weeks, trying to decide whether we really need to look at structural integrity of the installation,” he said, according to WZZM in Michigan. “We decided to have the ball removed and put into storage for now.”
If you want to believe that this guy had nothing to do with the swinging ball being removed, that’s your prerogative.
Since word spread that the school removed the sculpture, the hashtag #ReinstallTheBall has been trending on social media. Personally, I think students swinging naked on the ball like Miley is hilarious. Is that because I have a sick mind? More than likely.
