You would think that after everything Little Miss Miley has gone through with her suggestive pictures popping up on the internet, her controversial photo shoot with photographer Annie Leibovitz, her annoying YouTube videos and her questionable relationship with model Justin Gaston (who we know is really only a model because he is linked to Miley) that she would stop “freaking shit up” already.
The OCA, a national organization in the US that promotes Asian American Advocacy went public today in announcing that they, “[want] Miley and everyone to know that this image falls within a long and unfortunate history of people mocking and denigrating individuals of Asian descent.”
George Wu, the group’s exec 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. The inclusion of an Asian Pacific American individual in the photo does not make it acceptable. 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.”
… Way to go Miley. And although I may be biased, I would have to agree with the OCA on this one. I do find this offensive as well :/ She should really just know better, especially with her being in the public eye… every day.
