Miley In Hot Water Again

Posted on: February 3, 2009

Miley Cyrus is in hot water again, this time with the OCA (a group dedicated to the well being of Asian-Pacific Americans). Miley posed with friends while slanting their eyes pretending to be stereotypical Asians. “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” The OCA sent to TMZ, “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,”

You may be thinking, “there is an Asian in the picture!” But the OCA still finds it unacceptable, “The inclusion of an Asian Pacific American individual in the photo does not make it acceptable.” They are now asking Miley to apologise to the Asian Pacific American fans.

What do you think? I’m asian, I’m not offended.
