‘To call this disturbing action ‘homophobia’ would mean that the attacker had a ‘fear of’ queer people,’ she added. ‘Which is f**king bulls**t. This humans heart was full of HATE and ANGER.’ 

In another tweet, Cyrus wrote: ‘We can’t continue to allow these events to be written off as simply ‘homophobia’ … Because you know who was ‘scared’ in that situation? Gabriel.’

Gabriel’s boyfriend of three years had posted an emotional tribute to his late love, who he described as his ‘best friend’ and the love of his life. 

‘This Tuesday, he was murdered with three shots in his head, on a barber shop here in Embu das Artes (SP – Brazil), they killed him because of who he is, who he loves, a pure hearted person, that was mean to no one, always helped everyone.’ 

He continued: ‘Today I had to say goodbye to the love of my life, with my heart aching and sadness, it hurts me the most knowing I won’t hear his voice anymore, receive a “good morning” text or wake up next to him feeling loved in his arms.’
