Every story needs a villain -- and in the story of the Miley Cyrus bong video, fans seem to think the villain is one Anna Oliver.
Oliver, a close friend of the ‘Hannah Montana’ star, is allegedly the buddy who captured Miley’s salvia-smoking ways for posterity -- and some Cyrus fans now blame her for the video going public. A female voice can be heard at the start of the recording saying, ‘I’m going to document the [heck] out of this.’
TMZ, which first posted the video, reports that Oliver has deactivated her Twitter account and gone into hiding after a barrage of messages along the lines of, ‘What would you do if you met Anna Oliver? -- Probably kick her teeth in.’
Oliver is also a friend of recently derailed Disney star Demi Lovato, who posted a Flickr picture of them together in February with the caption ''BESTIESSSSSS - @AnnaCOliver.’
One anti-Anna Facebook page -- only 105 fans as of Tuesday morning, and paired with a Twitter account with 1,220 followers -- had wall posts including a not-so-subtle death threat, punctuated with a smiley face. That’s in contrast to messages like the one Oliver tweeted out Nov. 22: ‘Countdown to Mimi’s bdayyyyy wooooo!!!! 2hrs 20minsss!’
Who provided TMZ with the video -- shot at the singer’s house days after her 18th birthday -- is unclear, though the website Monday reported attempts by Team Miley to round up copies from a couple of college students who ‘came into possession’ of the video. One student contacted Cyrus’ reps shortly after Thanksgiving regarding the mini bongstravaganza, TMZ sources said.
Possession of salvia divinorum in California is legal.
