Shankman tweeted these photos last summer during filming, and when the media reacted – and reacted loudly – he explained himself with this:

Miley is a sweet angel who works tirelessly and endlessly, and is allowed to have fun in the make up room! Seriously! Lighten up or no more behind the scenes pics! She’s like my angel little sister.
But now footage of the pair at “The Last Song” wrap party has surfaced. Miley, who was 16 at the time, was seen dirty dancing with Shankman, a 44-year-old openly gay man.
The people who shot the video say they were offended by the dirty dancing — which included a graphic lap dance. Miley’s parents were not at the wrap party. Miley’s reps had no comment.
Watch them bump-and-grind below:
DOES HIM BEING GAY MAKE THIS ANY LESS INAPPROPRIATE?
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
