Well, with many coming up with negative comments, the American model Gigi Hadid was overwhelmed with praises for the singer. As a comment on the pictures, Gigi wrote,
"Wow I love this so much,"
At the same time, there were many who wanted Miley to get off the tree. One of the fan wrote,
"I love you, but get off the damn yucca, They can't sustain heavy weight, and your platform tells people it's ok to get on trees."
Similarly, one of the fans that come as @joshuatreehatesyou wrote a lengthy message for Miley.
"The root system of a Joshua tree is incredibly shallow, Repeated abuse by tourists is slowly causing their demise, bringing them closer to being added to the endangered list."
As for a fact, there are many organizations like The US Fish and Wildlife Service that are considering to include Joshua tree as the Endangered Species.
