Miley Cyrus tweeted a number of European leaders calling for action

Over the weekend Miley Cyrus embarked on a tweeting campaign calling on a number of country leaders to tackle Covid-19 and the racial health inequalities.

Miley tweeted the Italian, Spanish and Dutch Prime Ministers and also our very own Taoiseach Leo Varadker.

Leo has now responded to the surprise tweet.

Speaking to the Sunday World he said: 

“I welcome Miley, or indeed anyone, reaching out to me. We don’t have any data on whether Covid has affected black and minority ethnic group people more than white people in Ireland the way it has in America and Britain. We need to find out.”

“The information we have is that Covid has affected affluent households in Ireland more than disadvantaged ones which is very different to America and Britain. Black Lives Matter.”
