Miley Cyrus reshares the leaked bong video that caused her career scandal 10 years ago

Miley Cyrus has celebrated the "ten year anniversary" of a leaked video that lost her a lucrative deal with Walmart and had her father issuing a public apology on her behalf. 

In December 2010, footage of a then 18-year-old Cyrus smoking the psychoactive drug Salvia from a bong emerged, prompting outrage and despair from fans of the Hannah Montana child star. 

Cyrus was promptly dropped from her contract with Walmart as her father Billy Ray Cryus lamented how much was "beyond his control" on Twitter, telling his followers: "Sorry guys. I had no idea. I'm so sad." 

A decade on, the now 28-year-old pop star is poking fun at the scandal, resharing the video and sarcastically dubbing it "groundbreaking". 

"Happy 10 year anniversary to the groundbreaking video of a teenager smoking a bong and saying dumb shit to their friends," she wrote on Instagram. 

"Not sure the director of this fine film should be considered a 'friend'," she added alluding to the fact the person behind the camera may have betrayed her trust by shopping the video to the press. 

"Time really flew by,' Cyrus continued. 

"I remember this like it was yesterday..... J/K I don't remember shit cause I was f**ked the hell up." 

In 2011, Cyrus apologised for the incident herself, telling Marie Claire it was "a mistake".

"I'm disappointed in myself for disappointing my fans...So for me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I stand for."

However, just two years later the 'Can't Stop' hitmaker went on to smoke a joint on stage at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards, calling marijuana "the best drug on earth" in an interview with Rolling Stone that same year.
