Miley Cyrus mocks Asians

Miley Cyrus Ching Chong pose

Emulating the Spanish Olympic basketball team, the Spanish Olympic tennis team and Argentina’s Olympic women’s soccer team, Miley Cyrus pulled back her eyelids and offended a few billion people.

What might have been originally meant as abject mockery of the lone Asian in their group, has caused furor at the OCA, a group “dedicated to advancing the social, political and economic well-being of Asian Pacific Americans.” They issued this 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, said George Wu, executive director of OCA. 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.”

Doesn’t the OCA know the unwritten rule that it’s not racist as long as you have a friend who belongs to the minority you’re making fun of or that one person from said minority declares that they’re not offended? Clearly, that’s the case here. Anyway, Miley can’t be racist. Some of her best friends are Asian, like, the guy who works at the Chinese restaurant she always orders from and what’s-his-name from that picture going around the web. Yea, that funny looking kid not pulling back his eyes. They’re total BFF’s.

Miley, Miley, Miley…everytime I say your name my desire for you grows! I can’t wait for you to impale yourself upon me, it shall be so pleasurable…FOR ME! Muhahahaha! The torment you shall endure as my “BFF” will NEVER cease! You’re gonna wish your father didn’t try to see his success through you! The fame and the adoration will finish you, and you are helpless to resist! If you want me as much as I want you, then I suggest you masturbate with some #80 grit sandpaper wrapped around some thornbush branches…enjoy!

This is why adults can’t have sex with minors. You can get them to do things they don’t really understand.

Those pesky priests know all about this. Some poor little kid is getting poked in the pooper by a priest, next thing you know that kid is eating someones liver for breakfast.

they dont care what she did they just want her to apologise to them. to get the little famous girl to bow down to the mighty asian rights organization (a quick side note- the asian rights group is oppressing the rights of a little girl to get their way). and their last statment, about her “…taking this time to better understand why the gesture is offensive”, why aren’t they taking this time to understand why THEY are so upset with six rich suburban white KIDS “insulting an entire nation” by simply squinting their eyes. i think they are the ones… Read more »

Miley sure as hell didn’t start it but that doesn’t make it okay for her to actively engage in the perpetuation of these stereotypes. She’s old enough to know that it’s wrong and offensive. It’s not like she’s some random kid. She’s Hannah freakin’ Montana for crying out loud. And you’re reasoning is just as screwy. You’re basically saying that since she didn’t intend to hurt anybody that makes her actions okay. Well I’m pretty sure that most people who do the “slanty eyes” thing don’t mean to be offensive to Asians but if Asians deem it offensive, then out… Read more »

Wow you’re way off the mark. She’s setting a horrible example for those that look up to her, a lot of which are other suburbia rich kids who will take it as a sub conscience sign that you can get away with this crap in your schools. The other half of the people who are from well less areas like mine, and already there is so much subtle taunting of the two three asian kids in the school. And you know what, this photo only reenforces that its ok., “Its just some hippies and angry asian kids who want you… Read more »

If shes that stupid enough to keep getting caught with these pictures, then she should apologize to the world of of her stupidity.
It was wrong for her to put up Asian eyes and she should apologize. If she doesn’t want to always apologize, then she shouldn’t do stupid shit.

Miley is an idiot for this. But the Asian guy there is even dumber for being like hahaha this is funny

Corey Chambers

Miley did nothing wrong. Imitating asian eyes is ok if asian eyes are ok. Only a few insecure asians and racists believe that imitating asian eyes is in any way negative. Cocky Chambers, Village TV

Look, I’m pretty sure if any one who mocks your race and who has no right to, would piss anyone off. It does not mean that the people within that race who is anger by the mockery are insecure. It is a simple reason why they are angry, because they don’t like to be ridicule.

There is no need to say the Asians who are bothered by the mockery are insecure. Your reasoning shows that you, yourself do not understand.

Well for all the great insults one could say about her… who cares… for goodness sakes shes new britney spears, and I don’t mean “hit me baby one more time” britney, but the ooh look at me I’m all bald and diseased britney! So I hope that helps all the offended asian people sleep at night. No need to thank me.

Get over what? That it’s screwed up to engage in racist actions?

A racist act is just that. Nothing more or nothing less.

Challenge: Do a little bit of study of U.S. history and read up on Anti-Asian Exclusion Acts, the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII, including U.S. citizens, anti-interracial marriage laws, etc.

If one “mimics” an African American hanging from a tree, that’s not supposed to offend anyone, right? Please.

Get over trying to defend a racist act.

seriously if she wants this scandals to stop, then stop taking pictures!!
she might think its funny but to some other people it may be offensive.
im Asian and i somewhat took it offensive because they all did it(besides the Asian dude, he cant help to make his eyes small.)

*if your not Asian and your saying that “oh that’s not racist,” then think again, it is somewhat racist.

If you are not asian, stfu and do not give your opinion as to whether her gesture was racist or not because you would not know how insulting, racist and taunting it is. I am asian and people use to make that gesture at me while insulting me at the same time with remarks such as gook/nip/chink/etc. Thus, non-asians would never understand how mocking or insulting or racist the gesture is if they do not view it in context with how asians are belittled throughout there lives with such a gesture. Anyone who makes such a gesture are being RACIST… Read more »

@Corey Chambers Yeah, Asians are insecure that’s why they object. Imagine if Miley made sterotypical image of a black person, yeah, and everything would be ok right? You see, some here have this superior mentality that all minorities should just take these things as jokes cus in their opinions, it is nothing harmful. Good call there dumbass. It is obvious that many asians feel strongly about this and telling them they should shrug it cus YOU think it is ok only demonstrate your own insensitivity towards other people. It’s like telling a guy who got punched in the stomach over… Read more »

ok you guys need to get a life seriosuly. There is a fucking asian guy sitting in the group with her. Dont you think if what they were doing was meant to mock asians he would be a little pissed off? I dont think everyone in that room could possibly be so morally corrupt that they would mock thir friend right in front of him. And the only reason you are ripping on her is because shes a celeb. if she was a normal under the radar teen you people wouldnt give a fuck. not to mention all of you… Read more »

I’m Asian, and this is just too low even for her. She even took a picture, wth. I’m 16 too and I would never do something like that to insult any race or whatsoever. SHE NEEDS TO GROW UP, learn your values missy. MILEY: I used to like you, I mean I love HM. But because of all your issues and stuff, buh-bye. You do have talent but then you have your disrespectful ways of doing things. STOP acting like a diva, ’cause you’re so not. KEEP this up and you’ll have no career at all.

Miley, many people admired you for what you were doing before this incident. One suggestion though and this goes for everybody you have to think before you act. Specially those who are part of the limelight. People got different opinion and reacts in different ways. I am an asian and yes i do find it a bit painful. We all have different cultures and ways of life, but we need to respect each other in order to have a peace in our life. Maybe you should do apologized to asians specially the races that you were able to hurt without… Read more »
