Asian-American Groups Slam Miley Statement

Asian-American Groups Slam Miley Statement-photo

If Miley Cyrus was hoping to make peace with those she offended with this photo, she missed the mark with her statement today.

“The picture is offensive and now this statement is inadequate.” George Wu, Executive Director of the OCA, an Asian-American equality group tells Celebuzz.

“It’s not a real apology. We’re not backing down without a fuller apology," Wu said.

Cyrus took to her official website to explain the photos Thursday.

“I've...been told there are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces!" Cyrus wrote, "well, I'm sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context!"

The Hannah Montana star went on to deny any intentional racial insensitivity in relation to the photo, avowing, "In no way was I making fun of any ethnicity!"

Wu also criticized the use of "goofy" in the statement

“The 'goofy' is even a more unfortunate choice of words,” said Wu.

Karen Narasaki, president of the Asian American Justice Center calls Miley’s statement “disappointing.”

“It sounds like Ms. Cyrus doesn’t understand the pain felt by those of us who grew up being taunted by insensitive people making fun of our ethnicity by making exactly these kinds of faces and gesture,” said Narasaki.

    you are all pathetic, you cant tell me you did not also make a racist remark in your life, or even thought it. She is in the public eye, it was stupid, but shes a stupid how ever the hell old she is, and that's what little girls do.

    MILEY CYRUS SHOULD REALLY KILL HERSELF. honestly. who the f*ck does she think she is? she is obviously discriminating the entire asian population with a sterotype look. it's not goofy, you f*cking racist bitch, it's an offence. honestly, i swear she will one day turn out to be a convicted whore and a liar. superstar fame is not her number one specialty. it's being down right f*cked up. IF ANYONE SAYS GIVE HER A DAMN BREAK, I WILL SNAP THEIR BONES. SHE'S WHAT? SIXTEEN, SEVENTEEN? THAT IS NOT A CHILD AGE. SHE IS BECOMING A WOMAN FOR GOD'S SAKE AND SHE'S BEING f*cking RETARDED. someone get her into a mental hospital, please. and check on that messed up brain of hers. just because she's born into fame, it doesnt give her any priority to make her down grade people, lie then apologise for something she is obviously not sorry for. as for her friends, well, we can certainly see their dim future. i swear, she's worse than paris hilton's sex videos. wanna watch something gross? just keep on staring at ms UGLYf*ckEDUP CYRUS as she does what she certainly does not do best.

    I think that 'UNCLE TONG" in the photo needs to go back to school to learn some lessons about Asian bigotry. As for "HANOI MONTANA", I hope the wrath of one billion plus people wreaks havoc on future earnings!!!

    miley is sucha freak show, one thing that she should learn is that when she makes a mistake that she should own up for it. SHE IS BLATANTLY TRYING TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE SHE WAS MAKING GOOFY FACES ,WHEN SHE WAS MAKING CHINESE EYES, WHICH EVEN IF SHE DIDNT HAVE RACIST INTENTIONS, IT WAS STILL SOMETHING THAT SHE SHOULDNT HAVE DONE SINCE SHE IS IN THE PUBLIC EYE. STUPID FREAKO, MUCHOS STUPIDO, I WANT TO RIP YOUR EYES OUT. GIRL GOTTA GET HERSELF A NEW WEAVE, YOUR WEAVE IS COVERED IN BLOOD, COVERED IN BLOOD FROM THE LIES YOU SPREAD, YOU BLOOD STAINED WEAVE!!!!!!!!!!
