Let's start the list with Mathew Shepard and Brandon Teena and include every other anti-gay physical assault, murder, and/or mugging over the last fifty years or so (just since the invention of television.  Before that, this type of performance would reach maybe 200 people worldwide but now with TV and the internet (and videophones) just about everyone on the planet can watch Miley humping a wrecking ball.  Did this specific show inspire any homophobic murder attempts, no BUT shows like this are responsible for international gay stereotypes and they make bigots feel as if they are in the majority (which of course leads to them feeling like it's perfectly okay to go out and bash some effeminate person's head in) and that they are totally justified in hating all gay people simply for existing.
