Noah Cyrus claims she was unaware of the meaning behind the racial slur "nappy" when she insulted Candace Owens for calling Harry Styles unmanly.

Cyrus, who is best known as Miley Cyrus' little sister, apologized for hurling the racial insult in response to a tweet by the conservative activist.

Owens was highly critical of Styles wearing a dress on the cover of Vogue:

"There is no society that can survive without strong men. The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men."

Cyrus was livid, tweeting in defense of Styles, "better than any of u nappy a** heauxz."

Cyrus' timeline lit up like the 4th of July, as her outraged followers reprimanded her for being ignorant.

Owens responded:

"Any one of woke liberals care to explain to me how @noahcyrus calling me a 'nappy a** h**' is not racist?. I'm all ears. You guys love cancel culture. @MileyCyrus come get your sister!"

The backlash prompted the aspiring singer to apologize, claiming she was unaware of the history behind the racial slur.

"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. I in no way meant to offend anyone. I am so so sorry."
