Singer Noah Cyrus has been forced to apologize profusely after giving pop star Harry Styles a strange compliment on her Instagram page, according to People and TMZ.

Cyrus, the youngest sibling of Miley Cyrus, commented on the much discussed Vogue photo of Styles wearing a dress, writing that "he wears this dress better than any of u nappy ass heauxz." 

She quickly apologized on Instagram.

"I am mortified that I used a term without knowing the context and history, but I know now and I am horrified and truly sorry. I will never use it again. Thank you for educating me," the 20-year-old wrote in an Instagram story. "I in no way meant to offend anyone. I am so so sorry."

The responses were less than kind, with many people noting that it is common for white people to use terms they know are offensive, only to apologize after and say they were "educated."
