Miley Cyrus caused quite a stir after tweeting a Christmas-themed topless photo to support ‘Free the Nipple,’ a movement that aims to “decriminalize the female body.”

The photo, tweeted Dec. 14, could also double as Cyrus’ Christmas card, with added red hearts with ‘Merry Christmas’ written on them pasted on the photo to hide her breasts. Cyrus also digitally added a wreath, a snowman and a Santa hat to get into the holiday spirit.

The R-rated Christmas greeting is just another in a string of instances in which Cyrus has strayed from the wholesome image of Christmas. She is currently performing in the KISS FM Jingle Ball wearing a sparkly, red Santa-inspired two-piece, singing into a candy-cane decorated microphone and one of her backup dancers is dressed as a drunk Santa.

Cyrus received a lot of criticism over the photo, though, as she pointed out the next day on Twitter, she has been photographed wearing far less, and appears nude in the music video for her hit single “Wrecking Ball.”

Cyrus has become an advocate for the “Free the Nipple” movement, which is producing a documentary set for release in January 2014. Cyrus explained the movement in a tweet following the release of the controversial photo, writing, “It’s about equality.”

This isn’t the first time Cyrus has advocated for “Free the Nipple.” She tweeted about the movement days earlier on Dec. 10. And she will, undoubtedly, tweet about it again in the future.
