Miley Cyrus may have upset her fans more than she thought last weekend after cancelling her hotly anticipated appearance at the Kiss 108 Jingle Ball in Boston after a snow storm left the singer stranded at an airport in New Jersey.
And while that may seem like a perfectly viable excuse not to perform at the festive show at the city's TD Garden venue, some of Miley's fans are having none of it after paying hundreds of dollars to see their twerking hero on stage, launching an angry petition demanding the 'We Can't Stop' chart-topper returns to Massachusetts to play a free show.

The singer was just one of the many acts scheduled to perform that evening with superstars including her controversial partner in crime Robin Thicke and rockers Fall Out Boy also fronting the star studded bill, but nope, even they weren't enough for Miley's legion of disgruntled fans.
Apologising for the cancellation, the former Disney Princess posted a series of light hearted tweets including : “As much as I've thoroughly enjoyed the Teterboro Airport I would REALLY love to be playing #jingleball #Boston',” but now the petition posted on Change.org claims ticket holders weren't told of Miley's absence until after the final act performed and haven't been allowed refunds.
It states: "Every other act who performed at the New York Jingle Ball the night before made it to Boston. Why did Miley not plan for the snow and leave earlier? It seems the other acts did just that..She could have taken a car or a train if the airport was shut down... We paid to see Miley, who was headlining the show! If not a refund then Kiss (organising radio station Kiss 108Fm) should organise a free Miley concert for Jingle Ball ticket holders."

So far the petition has attracted over 120 signatures prompting Mary Menna, of Kiss108's parent company Clear Channel Communications to confirm organisers of the gig are now in talks with Miley's 'people' to try and find a resolution.
Speaking to the Boston Herald, she explained: “She (Cyrus) feels terrible that she didn't make it. Unfortunately, there was bad weather. It's New England and we've dealt with these kinds of issues before. But due to the nature of what a superstar she is, this one is bigger. Her band was there, her dancers were there, every indication was that things were running smoothly. We don't like to disappoint our listeners."
During her Jingle Bell ball run unsurprisingly Miley Cyrus has been hitting the headlines once again for her saucy antics as she gyrated on Santa in a red sparkly two-piece during her performance at Madison Square Garden. Later this month she will be headlining the annual New Year's Rockin' Eve festivities where she'll be taking to the stage just before the iconic ball drops in Times Square.
