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. In NO way was I making fun of any ethnicity! I was simply making a goofy face. When did that become newsworthy?
Miley Cyrus' slant-eye pose slammed by Asian group
The picture appears to show Cyrus striking the jokey pose with a group of friends. The only person in the group not joining in is a young man of Asian descent. A group representing Asian Americans accused the year-old of insulting other races and demanded a public apology.
Miley Cyrus has sparked anger among Asian groups after posing in a picture with friends and pulling her eyes into a slant. The photo marks the latest embarrassment for year-old Miley who has been criticised before for posing in suggestive pictures with her friends and taking part in a revealing photoshoot for Vanity Fair magazine when she was just 15 above. She appeared to be topless as she posed with nothing but a sheet covering her top half, forcing her to issue an apology to fans.
