Sinead O'Connor Writes Fourth Letter to Miley: "Please Do the Right Thing"

Sinead O'Connor isn't stopping in her crusade to get Miley Cyrus to apologize to her for allegedly poked fun at people with mental illnesses.  She's now written a fourth letter to the "Wrecking Ball" singer, saying that she has no desire to feud with her, but only wants her to acknowledge the hurt she's caused with her words.

Just to recap, after Miley said in an interview that Sinead's video for her hit "Nothing Compares 2 U" inspired her video for "Wrecking Ball," Sinead wrote her an open letter , advising her not to let the music business turn her into a "prostitute."  Miley responded on Twitter by mocking Sinead and Amanda Bynes for being mentally ill, which caused Sinead to fire off another open letter threatening to sue and demanding an apology.  When Miley wrote on Twitter that Sinead should let her know when she wanted to get together and talk, Sinead wrote yet another letter, repeating her threats and demands.

Now, in her extremly lengthy new letter, Sinead writes, " You’ve said on Matt Lauer’s show...that you don’t understand why I have been upset with you. I find that hard to understand frankly, since you’re clearly very far from being a stupid woman. My problem with you stems from your response to my first letter. Until you exposed me (And Amanda Bynes) to abuse...I had no problem with you whatsoever."

She continues, " I would very much like you please to apologize to myself and Amanda Bynes for having perpetuated abuse of both of us... You may have noticed that in your country it is the fashion to lynch young famous ladies in the streets because they have been diagnosed crazy by media and or celebrities."

"This is an unacceptable breach of human rights," adds Sinead. "L ook Miley, what you did to myself and Amanda encouraged enormous abuse of us both, publicly and privately. And will certainly have made it difficult for young people who admire you and who may be suffering with mental health problems or suicidal [thoughts] to feel they can be open and seek help, since you had us mocked for seeking help. "

Sinead continues. "I have no interest in the ‘feud’ which media want. There is no ‘feud’ as far as I am concerned. What there is however is a lot of very serious harm caused to myself and my children and probably to Amanda, and DEFINITELY to silent sufferers of your own age who may look up to you.  It’s really about dignity Miley...I’m not ‘feuding’ or fighting with you. But I am asking that you restore dignity to myself and Amanda and all sufferers...to leave people you have hurt so badly with no apology is unacceptable."

The Irish singer then finishes by telling Miley to "do the right thing," and, dramatically, adds, " You will actually save lives by doing so. There are people who will NOT die tonight, if you are brave enough to state that there is nothing whatsoever wrong with any person seeking publicly or privately, help, in order to stay alive."

Your move, Miley.
