Miley Cyrus Photo Angers Asian Group for Being Racist

miley cyrus asian racist photo

Another Miley Cyrus photo scandal is brewing.  The latest picture has many calling the 16-year-old Hannah Montana star racist.

The photo shows Miley and a group of friends pulling back the corners of their eyes to mock the slanted eyes of people of Asian descent.

The OCA, an Asian-American advocacy group, issued a statement saying, "The photograph of Miley Cyrus and other individuals slanting their eyes currently circulating the Internet is offensive to the Asian Pacific American community and sets a terrible example for her many young fans. This image falls within a long and unfortunate history of people mocking and denigrating individuals of Asian descent."

"Not only has Miley Cyrus and the other individuals in the photograph encouraged and legitimized the taunting and mocking of people of Asian descent, she has also insulted her many Asian Pacific American fans," said George Wu, executive director of OCA. "The inclusion of an Asian Pacific American individual in the photo does not make it acceptable."

The group has requested an apology from Cyrus for the offensive gesture.

This is the latest in a long line of photo scandals for the pop star.

    please, you cant even make a joke without SOME asians begin to bitching about it. if you have problems with self-esteem or your own natural characteristics, the problem is with you, go find a psychologist for treatment. nobody has the right to censor a joke just because you dont like

    I totally disagree. She has probably gained fans with this stunt. And further I object - the inclusion of an Oriental American individual in the photo does make it acceptable.

    I happen to be Asian and I find this common and extremely offensive. It is mocking our physical appearance which is something We can't change. I embrace my culture and for someone to make a joke out of it is just stupid and they need to think about what they are doing. Especially Miley, she has lots of fans, though I'm not sure why, that are young and look up to her. With her current actions she's not doing herself any favors with her career.

    Give us a break. We are all American. No race is any better than any other. Everyone should be proud to be part of the HUMAN race. Martin Luther King had a dream that we could all get along.
