Miley Cyrus has reportedly not only upset her fiance' Liam Hemsworth with her VMAs performance this year but also the inventor of the foam finger! We aren't kidding...Find out why the guy is mad at Miley and let us know if you blame him! We weren't the only ones not feeling Miley Cyrus' MTV Video Music Awards performance!

Not only did her fiance' Liam Hemsworth reportedly not like her raunchy routine but the alleged creator of the foam finger, Steve Chmelar, recently blasted the star for "degrading" his creation during her live performance at the VMAs.

Steve claims to have created the first foam hand to support his high school basketball team when he was a teenager and now he's not thrilled with the way Miley used his invention.

"I would say that it certainly misrepresented its intent to encourage team support," Steve told Fox News.

"She took an honourable icon that is seen in sporting venues everywhere and degraded it," he continued.

He's not too worried about what Miley possibly did to his product's reputation though.

"Fortunately, the foam finger has been around long enough that it will survive this incident. As for Miley Cyrus, let's hope she can outlive this event and also survive."


Don't worry, Steve's not simply a Miley hater. He admitted her whole image could simply just not be his thing.

"For people that like that kind of entertainment, I'm sure that it met their needs. If I had a choice between Julie Andrews singing 'The Sound of Music' and Miley Cyrus doing '[We] Can't Stop', I'd go the Julie Andrews route, but everyone has their choice and their decision."

Do you blame the foam finger inventor for being upset with Miley or do you think this is all ridiculous? What did YOU think of her performance?
