A day is not complete without an inappropriate photo leak from the most overexposed underage sufferer of multiple personality disorder on the planet. Usually in said images, Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus' midriff is bare, her lips are overtly pouted, her pants are non-existent, and her camera and mirror are there to encapsulate these private moments every 16-year-old attention whore on MySpace can relate to. But in today's leak, Miley not only has a whopping two layers of fabric (plus her 20-year-old boyfriend's arm) covering her usually visible boyshorts, she's also not pouting and instead, mocking the entire Asian American community. It was bad enough when the not-yet-legal Disney star went around using their signature greeting...
Now, she had to go steal their eyes? I mean, really, Miley, if you're going to cross over to the land of racially explicit photography, you could at least come up with an original approach. Spain's Olympic men's basketball team as well as their women's tennis team, the Argentinian Olympic women's soccer team, and every first grader whose recited the "Chinese, Japanese, dirty knees, look at these" rhyme have made us all tired of the slanty-eyed emphasis gesture.
Good news for the AZN, however, is that this has galvanized the association for people against finger face lifts, otherwise known as the OCA. The Asian American advocacy group executive director, George Wu says, "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. The inclusion of an Asian Pacific American individual in the photo does not make it acceptable." I guess next, Mr. Wu will go to Miley's homeland of Magic Kingdom and chastise after every person wearing socks and sandals, despite the likely park presence of an actual Asian.
But furreals, Miley should say she's sorry... and not with a distorted "r," especially since it's bad enough that the girl has a serious lisp.
