Miley Cyrus hit back at critics online who reportedly suggested she was grabbed and forcibly kissed by a man in Spain because of the way she was dressed.

The "Wrecking Ball" singer was walking through a crowd of fans in Barcelona, Spain, recently when a man wrapped his arm around her, grabbed her hair and leaned in for a kiss.

A short video of the incident surfaced on Twitter.

Cyrus commented on the incident in a tweet Tuesday featuring a clip from the tabloid TV show "Inside Edition." The report said some commenters suggested the singer was asking for trouble because of how she was dressed. (Note: Cyrus' tweet contains profanity.)

"She can be wearing what she wants," she wrote. "She can be a virgin. She can be sleeping with 5 different people. She can be with her husband. She can be with her girlfriend. She can be naked. She CAN’T be grabbed without her consent."

Cyrus, 26, was in Barcelona for the Primavera Sound Festival. She was making her way through a crowd of fans when the man reached out and grabbed her.

Cyrus turned her head and wriggled loose while her security team jumped in. Her husband, Liam Hemsworth, who had been walking in front of her, then turned and put his arm around her.

Last week, she released an album called "She Is Coming" and plans to put out two more, "She Is Here" and "She Is Everything," later this year.

Cyrus also appears in the upcoming fifth season of Netflix's "Black Mirror," which becomes available Wednesday.
