SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — The Dominican Republic government commission that oversees public performances is banning a Sept. 13 concert by Miley Cyrus on morality grounds and for allegedly inciting lesbian sex.

The National Commission of Public Entertainment and Radio said in a statement Thursday that it took the action because Cyrus often “undertakes acts that go against morals and customs” which it says are punishable by Dominican law.

The CNEPR statement said Cyrus uses “uses inadequate attire, corrupts language, perverse imagery and phrasing, phrases with double meanings, glorifies crime, violence and denigrating acts against civility and promotes sex, lesbian sex and the use of inadequate objects in public.”

A representative for Cyrus did not immediately respond to the Associated Press’ request for comment. Concert organizers in the Dominican Republic did not comment on the ban.

The concert had been scheduled for Sept. 13.
