Hannah Montana plot hole about Miley's father goes viral on TikTok

Disney Channel fans will remember Hannah Montanathe series in which Miley Cyrus plays a teenager who leads a double life as a normal girl by day and a famous pop singer by night — but they may not remember a glaring plot hole that recently went viral on TikTok.

Nine years after the series' final season in 2011, a fan revealed in a now-viral TikTok video that it seems quite unlikely that no one in the fictional world of Hannah Montana ever realized that Robby Ray Stewart – played by Miley's real father Billy Ray Cyrus – was the father of both the titular pop star and Miley Stewart.

As TikTok user KylieKlunder explains in the clip: “Robby Ray [Stewart] was Miley Stewart's father.”

“We know this because Rico goes to their house and says, 'Miley and Jackson, I need to talk to your dad because my grandma is a huge fan of old washed-up country singers. Can I have his autograph, please?'” she continues. “It's common knowledge that the old country singer is Robby Ray… Miley and Jackson's dad.”

KylieKlunder further points out that in the Jonas Brothers episode in Season 2, the members of the boy band express their excitement at meeting Robby Ray, and Hannah Montana responds, “Yep, my dad – Robby Ray, the old country singer – writes all the songs.”

As another example, Kylie Klunder cites that when Robby Ray presents Hannah Montana with the Golden Booty Award, he says that he is excited to present it to his Daughter.

“Robby Ray, the famous country singer, was both Miley Stewart and Hannah Montana's father, and no one ever put the two together!” Kylie Klunder concludes in the video – a realization that would surely have led others on the show to discover Hannah Montana's true identity as Miley Stewart.

Hannah Montana ran for four seasons on the Disney Channel from 2006 to 2011 and was nominated for a Primetime Emmy four times during its run.
