There are some things that you should never do with a country’s flag and in Mexico, getting your rear spanked with it is a big no-no. Just ask Miley Cyrus, who could see some jail time for pulling the stunt.
During a concert Tuesday in Monterrey, Mexico, one of Cyrus’ dancers whipped out a Mexican flag and used it to whip the singer right on her big ol’ padded prosthetic rear.

Reuters reports that local lawmaker Francisco Trevino failed to see the fun in the stunt. Trevino said that the Nuevo León state legislature has asked the Mexican federal government to fine Cyrus for disrespecting the country’s flag.
She and her dancers could be fined up to $1,200 and/or spend 36 hours in jail.
She should have consulted with singer Paulina Rubio, who was fined $4,000 in 2008 for posing in a magazine with a Mexican flag wrapped around her naked body.
