Miley Adds Racist Gag to Already Long List of Photo Scandals - February 3rd 2009, 08:13 AM

http://www.popeater.com/music/articl...992x1201226710

Miley Cyrus has had her share of photo scandals in the past couple years, ranging from racy pics on her MySpace page to statements of regret over her mature photo shoot with Annie Leibowitz. Her latest scandal has angered more than parents and fans looking for a good role model - a photo of Miley and her friends pulling back their eyelids to adopt an archaic, racist caricature of Asian people has leaked to the web

The OCA, an organization "dedicated to advancing the social, political and economic well-being of Asian Pacific Americans" sent a statement to TMZ in response to the photo. It reads, in part: "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... The inclusion of an Asian Pacific American individual in the photo does not make it acceptable." Read the entire statement on TMZ
Karen Narasaki, president of the director for the Asian American Justice Center, tells CELEBUZZ, "It's hard to imagine the context where this would be okay. It's offensive and disappointing. She's such a role model for young women."
An image search for Cyrus on Google still offers an abundance of scantily clad photographs of the young singer, many of them taken and posted by herself. Last year, after a relatively tame but partially unclothed photo shoot with famed photographer Annie Leibowitz, Cyrus released a statement saying, "I took part in a photoshoot that was supposed to be 'artistic' and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed."

You'd have thought she would have learnt a lesson from the photographs that were leaked but clearly she hasn't. She really isn't setting much of an example for her younger fans especially since she's on Disney as well, you'd think she's be more careful.

I'm sorry, but seriously, there are things you do in private with your friends jokingly, and there are things you put on the internet for the world to see as an international celebrity. I'm not saying this is the worst offense a tween star has ever committed, I'm just saying that she was pretty much asking for trouble. Oh Miley...

peace and love

It makes me sick that children look up to her, and this is the kind of role model she is? giving children the wrong ideas

A bit stupid of her, of course, but the way the OCA is reacting you'd think that Asian-Americans were being interned or something. It was a joke. Not a funny joke, but still a joke.

This reminds me of a scene from Father Ted (are you right there father ted? if you're interested ) where he does a Chinaman impression as a bit of fun and is caught making the whole of Craggy Island think he's racist when he's not.

Like that scene I seriously doubt she intended it to go on the web. Blame the media who stalk this teenager 24/7 and will do anything to get a story. How would you feel if every small mistake you made ended up in the public domain and you had no privacy?

I actually feel quite sorry for Miley, I think there are some people who are too harsh on her and there's a lot of media just waiting for her to slip up. Tbh it is just the sort of thing any teen could do, and maybe Miley doesn't realize she can't act like 'any teen' because she's not 'any teen'. I can't criticize her for what she did but I don't think she understands her responsibility as a role model for so many young girls.

Poor girl. So many teens take asian shots, but it only bites you in the ass if you're a Disney star.

Whatever, she gets paid enough to know better than be a bad "role model".

For crying out loud, she is a kid. Most of us have done something stupid at one point or another. We just don't have someone always putting it online.


She whispered to her own reflection "I will be strong."

it's sad that parents expect a TV star to be their child's role model, rather than taking on the role themselves.

Given her family's "star" status, she should know by now that any move she makes is potential tabloid fodder. Unfair, sure, but it's not like it shouldn't be expected.

That and I second Sissa's statement. <3

TMZ?? for the love of God, TMZ is a tabloid company that's full of shit.

Leave Miley alone, already. You don't know her, TMZ is shit, how would you like this treatment?
Whoever wrote this makes me sick. It's just like rumors or bullying.
YES, you're bullying Miley with every post you make. Isn't that what we're against? Gossip?

I'm Asian and I'm honestly not offended. Just because she's making slanted eyes, doesn't mean she's hating on Asians. There's an Asian dude in the picture for goodness sake.

I remember I was in the school halls seeing this oriental dude and Desi girl taking a picture and she made her eyes slanted...

People do that kind of thing everyday.
But I don't feel bad for Miley. She should think before she does stuff like this.
Some people out there might get offended. So just take the picture, but don't go and put it on the internet. Seriously, sometimes I think she does this stuff on purpose just for attention. She needs to grow up a bit.

I really dont see why this is a big deal. I used to slant my eyes alot as a kid just for the hell of it, not as a racist thing at all. People do stupid faces in photos and this looks to me like one of those "hey lets pull a face" moments. Not a "hey lets all be racist" moment.
There's an asian guy right there in the picture and he wouldnt have participated in the photo if he found it offencive. He probably found it amusing.
The fact that Miley can't be a dork in herown photos without getting bashed about is disgusting.

Honestly- we make fun of Miley all the time. None of my Asian friends are offended, teenagers do that all the time. And it's not out of spite. It's not like "LETS MAKE FUN OF ASIAN PEOPLE"

Plus.. isn't there an Asian guy sitting in the picture?

Just because one Asian man is sitting in a picture doesn't make it any more ok, or mean that all Asians are alright with it. Some might take offense.
I personally think it's more stupid than anything else.

I honestly think this is a huge over-reaction. She what, 16? She can't be expected to be perfect. She took a relatively innocent photo, that I doubt she ever meant to be circulated, and it got turned into a freaking circus. I understand that racism exists, but all of these organizations that come out and have a freaking party every time a celebrity messes up seriously need to go find something better to do. There are much more serious racism issues for them to be addressing than some stupid kid that made a mistake.

Re: Miley Adds Racist Gag to Already Long List of Photo Scandals - February 12th 2009, 05:42 AM

I'm laughing my arse off right now. She's 16 or 17 or whatever, doing this kind of stupid stuff isn't anything unusual. So what, she looked to be at a party or something and did a stupid photo? Do you have any idea as to how many non-teen popstars do this nonsense and worse, yet don't have their faces plastered over the internet? It's a hell of a lot.

Also, it doesn't matter what you do, you're going to offend someone. Sure, some asians couldn't care less, some may think miley is an idiot and some may be pissed off. But that's the same with every single thing, so I see no reason why this nonsense gets a bunch of press. Perhaps the only reason is that some talentless teen girl is involved.

Lastly, I've seen one of the TMZ episodes on TV, and all it seems to me is capturing random photos of celebrities in awkward moments then bitching about it behind their backs, and then airing it on television. If anything, this garbage of TMZ disgusts me far more than miley doing some pathetic attempt to get even more attention or whatever her motive was to do this and get it on the internet.

As for the asians wanting $4 billion, that's also a laugh. We're in lousy economic times and these asians make their priority of getting $4 billion for some random chick with her friends doing some stupid nonsense? Maybe people really are that desperate to get money. But, growing some skin and not whining to someone for every single thing they do and wanting money or an apology would also be of great benefit.

Kim says Miley's "just a kid" defense doesn't fly. She says it's like Paris Hilton claiming to be just a kid. Ouch.

Miley's peeps could not immediately be reached for comment.
What?!

Peace.

Re: Miley Adds Racist Gag to Already Long List of Photo Scandals - February 12th 2009, 10:16 AM

Granted, if it were Asians making fun of white guys (say reverse squinting), everyone would be okay with it. It annoys me that other ethnic groups are allowed to make fun of white people...

I think if they want $4 billion from Miley, they should do like they are doing in the whole Phelps fiasco, and bring in everyone else in the pictures who was involved and try to make them pay too =P

Kinda makes me want to comb myspace for photos that could be interpreted as being racist towards me, and file civil suits against those people. Maybe I could pay off my student loans this way =P

lmao. I have done that with my friends plenty of times! whats the big @#%*ing deal? my best friend is from the Philippines, I am by no means racist. It is just a damn joke.

People need to loosen up and stop taking Kids having fun and turning it into a horrible racial hate crime.

Wow. just wow.


You know you are on the precipice of greatness when you feel joy, fear, and the butterflies of change all at the same time.
