Another photo of MILEY CYRUS has hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons – this time she’s poking fun at Asians.
After scantily-clad photos of the teen sensation caused outrage last year (08) when they were leaked on the Internet, Cyrus is at the center of a new snapshot scandal.
Cyrus and a group of male friends pull their eyes to mock Asians – while one Asian-American sits among them.
And the picture, which hit the Internet over the weekend (31Jan09) has enraged the Asian-American community.
Officials at advocacy group OCA are demanding an apology from Cyrus.
The group’s executive director says, “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.
“We hope that Miley Cyrus will apologize to her fans and the APA community for this lapse in judgment and takes the opportunity to better understand why the gesture is offensive.”
