Dominican Republic Bans Miley Cyrus Concert

Peter Kramer/NBCMiley Cyrus has been banned from performing in the Dominican Republic on morality grounds.

The Buenos Aires Herald reports that the September 13 concert, scheduled for the country's capital of Santo Domingo, has been canceled by the local government, because Miley's performances "go against [the Dominican Republic's] morals and customs," and she uses "language and images which encourage sex and violence." 

The government also accused her of wearing "unsuitable costumes," inciting "lesbian sex," and using "inappropriate objects in public."

Tickets for the show had been on sale since July.
