Miley Cyrus Responds To Slanted Eyes Picture Controversy

Miley Cyrus Slanted Eyes

is responding to criticism of a recent picture of her that leaked onto the web featuring the ‘Hannah Montana’ star using her fingers to slant her eyes along with her boyfriend Justin Gaston and some other friends as they posed with an Asian man.

“The photo falls within a long and unfortunate history of people mocking and denigrating individuals of Asian descent,” the Organisation of Chinese American (OCA) said. “Not only has 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 friends. We hope 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.”

Cyrus wrote to fans on her official web site:

I’ve also been told there are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces! Well, I’m sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context!

In NO way was I making fun of any ethnicity! I was simply making a goofy face. When did that become newsworthy? It seems someone is trying to make something out of nothing to me. If that would of been anyone else, it would of been overlooked! I definitely feel like the press is trying to make me out as the new ‘BAD GIRL’!

I feel like now that Britney is back on top of her game again, they need someone to pick on! Lucky me! haha Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know what is on my heart. You guys know me and have been by my side every step of the way!

You guys know my heart and know the most important things to me are my friends, family, fans, and GOD! In NO WAY do I want to disappoint any of you! But, when I have made mistakes in the past, I feel like I’ve owned up to them and apologized.

I really wish everyone would stop focusing on my personal life and get back to focusing on what I love! Music and Acting! Hopefully, I will be touring again this fall! Yayy! =] It will be a nice change to be back out on the road again!

bexoxo blessings…Miley =)

    When will she ever learn?? I really find this offensive because I myself have a Chinese blood, and I am 100% Asian. She has mocked a lot of people and has been a real bad model. She needs to learn her lesson.

  3. Chane says:

    Miley said she just making funny faces and didn’t intend to offense any ethnicity. The picture tells it all. Everyone in the picture makes slanted eyes, except for that Asian guys. How ridiculous is that? I am Asian and has a 6-yr daughter who loves to watch and listen to Hanna Montana show and music. I will erase all the memories from my daughter. Miley is a just a kid – a kid that I hate from the moment I saw that picture with the group of friends.

    What a blatant straight liar who doesn’t want to own up to her blatant mistakes!

    So a face with slanted eyes are goofy?

    Did she lead the act or were she influenced by her peers? Either way, it is so not role model behavior.

    So this is what she does in her ‘personal life’? Well that speaks so much about her and her company.

    If anyone thinks there’s something wrong with Asian eyes or slanted eyes, then they are ones with the problem. Asian eyes are beautiful for their own qualities, just like big blue eyes are as well. If you really believe that nothing is wrong with Asian eyes, then you should agree that its not be a problem to make your eyes slanted or Asianized for a photograph. Cocky Chambers

    You guys are calling Miley racist? when your the ones that are being stereotypical and saying slanted eyes represents Asians. I am Asian myself and my eyes aren’t even slanted. So who are the ones that are really racist?

  7. Antonia says:

    yes, she did say she was making “goofy faces” but she was making herself look Asian. So she thinks Asians look “goofy”? And to make a mistake is one thing, but to post it online for EVERYONE to see is just an act for more publicity. I’m not saying she has to be more snti-prone to mistakes or anything. I’m just saying she should be more careful. she is a celebrity and whatever she posts online on Facebook or Myspace or things like that, people are going to see it whether she wants them to or not…

    Maybe the press should interview the fan and ask him if he minded it?i mean you should really think about how old Miley is… She’s only a girl…and just because she is big in the business doesn’t make her perfect…shes growing up and yes she loves her fans even though I hate her to my depths for making a billion of little copies like her….i think people want young stars to be responsible too much and too grow up but when they do what they are demanded of by parents and figures they turn out like Britney and they act “adult”. Stop pressuring them… let them be kids but don’t let them run wild….why can’t people find that happy medium?

  9. kaytie(bronwkid in school) says:

    just to let you know goofy faces or slanted eyes are really not the controversy at hand here. people are making it bigger than expected…did you here about it on the news?no but I did here about the elderly man down the street being robed and beaten to death last Monday….are we serious people?cant we find something better to complain about…what about health care …or our troops?maybe if America cared…but its too bad it doesn’t and is a self centered nation….why can’t we worry about our earth and figuring out how we are going to preserve it for future generation so that they can see Miley grow up and become a well adjusted young lady? really people? really…what herp derps…you are all so close minded….this is why we are filing suits against our neighbors for talking to loud or some thing that happened to me small children running in their front yard with no shirt in the pool? Please people get a damn clue…..sighs… I wish I wasn’t human then id at least understand things better…..

  13. Robinhood says:

    I’m an Asian and my eyes are not slanted. Only slanted eyes people aren’t Asian so don’t generalize everyone in the same category.
