Cyrus Racist Pose

Published on February 3, 2009 under Celebrity Gossip

Miley Cyrus has sparked controversy after being photographed pulling a ‘racist pose’.

A picture surfaced online over the weekend showing the Hannah Montana star pulling her eyes into a slant with an Asian-American sitting in her group of friends.

Organisation OCA, which represents the Asian Pacific American community, slammed Cyrus and her friends for the gesture.

“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,” said OCA executive director George Wu.

“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 legitimised the taunting and mocking of people of Asian descent, she has also insulted her many Asian Pacific American fans.”

OCA urged Cyrus to apologise for the “lapse in judgment”.
