Country music star Billy Ray Cyrus on Monday tweeted his opposition to bills that target the LGBT community.

Cyrus, the father of Miley Cyrus, a strong proponent of LGBT rights, said in a series of tweets that he would “feel negligent” if he did not speak out.

“I would feel negligent to not speak up against the discriminatory bills that are threatening the rights and safety of the LGBT community,” Cyrus tweeted.

“In light of my good friend, Bryan Adams, taking a stand and my daughter having been on the ground floor of this movement, this issue is very important to me,” he continued, a reference to Adams' cancellation of a show in Mississippi.

“As a friend and dad… I’ve witnessed this fight from the very beginning. I think everyone should be treated equal. We’ve come too far; we can’t mess this up,” Cyrus added.

Miley Cyrus has also expressed her opposition.
