Billy Ray Cyrus is on the advisory board of the Parents Television Council, which slammed his daughter Miley Cyrus for her ultra-sexy performance on the Video Music Awards on MTV Sunday night.

Ironically, the Parents Television Council says its mission is to "protect children from graphic and gratuitous programming and to restore responsibility to the entertainment industry," notes the Daily Mail.

Former BET network executive Paul Porter, who is part of the Parents Television Council, stated: "The Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke performance simply substituted talent with sex."

Dan Isett, public policy director for the Parents Television Council, said: "MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate "twerking" in a nude-colored bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds?"

However, Billy Ray Cyrus told Entertainment Tonight: "She's still my little girl and I'm still her Dad regardless how this circus we call show business plays out. I love her unconditionally and that will never change. Of course I'll always be here for Miley. Can't wait see her when she gets home."

During a 2007 interview with  Glenn Beck, Cyrus said Miley "has good head on her shoulders."
