Miley Cyrus: Again in photo controversy
Disney teen star Miley Cyrus is back in news again. After last year's photo scandal, she hasn't learned yet the larger lesson of avoiding cameras all together.
This time Miley finds herself in trouble over personal photos where she is 'slanting her eyes' with a group of friends and boyfriend Justin Gaston.
The news of offensive photos of the teen sensation leaked yesterday. The picture, which hit the Internet has enraged the members of Asian-American community. They are asking for a public apology from the 16 year old Miley Cyrus.
Officials at advocacy group OCA, who advances the rights of Asian Americans, has released a statement regarding the photo. They siad in the statement, "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 OCA hopes 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".
Disney or Miley Cyrus herself did not yet comment anything about the photo.
