The young pop star, who is known for pushing the boundaries, has now offended people with a statement about date rape which she seems to thinks is funny.

During a secret show a London Club called G-A-Y on Friday night, Cyrus used her time on stage to wish a friend a happy birthday.

During the tribute she said to the crowd, "You know, everyone's a little bit gay… It's the truth. ... And if that doesn't work, sprinkle something in their drink. That's what I always do."

Fans weren't too happy to hear about the joke and reacted on Twitter.

Some of those tweets included:

@MileyCyrus so jokes about date rape are 'in' right now???? Take a step back

Rape jokes are offensive and not funny. Apologize and stop being dumb. Love you @MileyCyrus

@MileyCyrus miley, ilu, but can you PLEASE not make jokes about rape, a lot of your fans (me included) have been raped, and it's not funny

Women'sHealth.Gov has information about the three common date rape drugs, Rohypnol, GHB and Ketamine.

Rohypnol comes as a pill that dissolves in liquids. Some are small, round, and white. Newer pills are oval and green-gray in color. When slipped into a drink, a dye in these new pills makes clear liquids turn bright blue and dark drinks turn cloudy. But this color change might be hard to see in a dark drink, like cola or dark beer, or in a dark room. Also, the pills with no dye are still available. The pills may be ground up into a powder.

GHB has a few forms: a liquid with no odor or color, white powder, and pill. It might give your drink a slightly salty taste. Mixing it with a sweet drink, such as fruit juice, can mask the salty taste. Ketamine comes as a liquid and a white powder.

Cyrus has yet to make mention of the joke. What do you think? Funny or not?
