Miley Cyrus claims Asian photo is a media beat up, compares herself to Britney

miley-cyrus-asian-photo

Miley Cyrus has finally responded to the controversy over a photo of her mocking Asian people with a “slant-eye” facial pose.

The 16 year old star doesn’t apologize for the gesture, only for people taking the photo “out of context.” She instead claims that it was just a “goofy face” pose, and blames the media for a beat up.

“I’ve also been told there are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces! Well, I’m sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context!” Miley said on her person site.

“In NO way was I making fun of any ethnicity! I was simply making a goofy face. When did that become newsworthy? It seems someone is trying to make something out of nothing to me. If that would of been anyone else, it would of been overlooked! I definitely feel like the press is trying to make me out as the new ‘BAD GIRL’!”

Yeah, because mocking Asians is funny Miley. But it gets better, because Miley thinks she’s the new Britney Spears:

“I feel like now that Britney is back on top of her game again, they need someone to pick on! Lucky me! haha Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know what is on my heart. You guys know me and have been by my side every step of the way! You guys know my heart and know the most important things to me are my friends, family, fans, and GOD! In NO WAY do I want to disappoint any of you! But, when I have made mistakes in the past, I feel like I’ve owned up to them and apologized.”

Epic fail. It’s pretty clear now that Miley needs some racism rehab or sensitivity training if she somehow thinks that this is all a joke and some part of a conspiracy, after all, the media didn’t ask her to pull her eyes back in that photo.

    But wait – isn't that an ASIAN in the photograph? What must he be THINKING, surrounding himself with all those terrible…mockers?

    Show me a kid who's never gone with some Charlie Chan schtick in their life for a joke, and I'll show you a deprived, humorless childhood. Wise up, Dunc – some people look different from other people. That's how you tell your mother from your sister.

    And unless MC personally sent you that picture, who the hell are YOU to pronounce on her need for “racism rehab”?

    Get a freakin' life…

    White people have no understanding of racism since they're the ones dishing it out. And to think I feel bad when whites are treated badly in hawaii

    I don't understand who is stupid enough to think this is racist – from the photo it looks like good matured ribbing of their Asian friend? I take it people who think this is racist do not have any mixed-race friends – when you are comfortable around someone you can make fun of them without it being insulting…my asian friends make fun of me being white, and I make fun of them being asian…same think with my african american friends. its all in good fun and by no means is anyone offended, it is simply part of being friends with someone. Would I mock an asian person who I didn't know? Of course not! People need to stop being so f'ing sensitive.

    Gestures and symbols can be offensive to people… if she had held up a confederate flag or a Nazi symbol or put on blackface, do you think that'd be ok? Its just that most people don't understand the history and offensiveness of slant-eyes, including Miley. I hope she learns that what appears to be just fun, can have a deep historical and offensive meaning as well.

    you guys are all f****s!!! you shouldnt be doing that! do you know how much that breaks my heart??!!! GOD MILEY! GET A GRIP!

    miley and other white are acting “asian” and asian guy is acting “white”.
    Ehhh så what?

    Am I racist if I gangster walk like Tupac?
    Should all white hiphop guys be in jail for racism?

    Imo asian stuff, design, culture, people, girls are VERY hot , very hip and very IN right now.
    This Cyrus pic could be viewed as a homage to asian people and culture.

    OK, am I the only one who notices that th asian friend who 'isn't participating in the pose' as somebody described it, looks to be having FUN? He's hanging ou with his friends, who are clearly all crazy – now you can think what you want of that blasted picture, but if it doesn't offend HIM, I can't think why it should affect the rest of us. They're just wacky kids having fun.
    My friends and I did crap like that years ago when I was a kid – before they invented PC or sensitivity training. I don't know anyone who'd be offended by this.
    That said, I'm one very, very white white girl. If somebody teases me about my weight, my voice, or Scots, Irish, or German heritage(s), I will probably get annoyed. But if you find a picture of me and my friends, and they are mocking any of those things – hey, there's nothing I find funnier that a *good* fat joke. If I don't look bothered, you don't have the right to be.

    im a korean american born in new york and i think HER PICTURE IS NOT RACIST!! im not at all offended by this, she seems to be having fun . its stupid that people are actually making a big deal of this. i'm a teenager and i think its normal for friends to take silly pictures as long as its not illegal . and i think the people that are making a big deal of it, are minoritizing themselves . and to define racism its really an act of one race feeling superior to others . clearly, these weren't miley's intentions and she has an asian friend there with her. moreover, my friends and i make fun of each other ALL THE TIME like that and we never take it offensively because we all know wherever we might come from, we're still americans, proud to be different yet the same.

    hope that clarified for some of you melodramatics. God bless :)

    Wow really?
    Why can't people get over themselves.
    How would you like to not be able to do ANYTHING
    WITHOUT BEING JUDGED BY OVER A MILLION PEOPLE.
    She took a picture SO WHAT! If i did it and posted it all over
    the internet i wouldnt get sued, so why is she? Because she has a lot of money thats why.
    No one cares what she did, they just know that they can get a bunch of money by making it a big deal.
    And i mean seriously there was a flipping asian in the picture, he doesnt look like he minds so if he finds it all in good nature why cant everyone else?

    Get overyourselves and chill sometimes.
    She is still only 16, and she still likes to have fun.

    where is the news story about the other 5 people getting sued. Unlawful discrimination can be characterized as direct or subtle. Direct discrimination involves treating someone less favorably because of their possession of an attribute, compared with someone without that attribute in the same circumstances… Miley should sue.

  11. Asian Chickk

    I find this picture very offensive since im asian.
    but awells, even though
    she denies it, she's getting sued for
    4 BILLION. :D

  24. Benyamin Solomon

    It´s so ridiculous how the politically correct left-wing pieces of filth accuse people of racism when they sneeze. Miley Cyrus was joking around in that picture. Yet we see these politically correct left-wing pieces of dirt jump on her and accuse her of being “racist´´ toward Asians. Give me a freakin´break! Please.

  25. Taylor Nicole Fulton

    It's "pretty clear" that you're a closedminded asshole. Get a life. If you can't prove her wrong, you have no business doing this. In the mean time, I volunteer to ridicule the person who's proved themselves to be a rumor spreader, aka scum whose goal is to make people feel bad for doing things they may not have done.
