Disgrace to Miley!

Everybody has seen this picture of Miley Cyrus making fun of Asian people. It saddens me that teens, kids and adults still think this behaviour is OK. As a mother of 2 beautiful Asian girls I know that the racism between other races is not over in the world... I believe it is better than say 20 years ago, but this picture proves that it is not over yet! And that saddens me. (Although is it really better, or are people more subtle about it, and are afraid to be frowned upon if saying something nasty in public... a thought that keeps me busy some days).

So far Jasmine and Juliet had only a few incidents in their lives that confronted them with ignorant remarks and people who are not open to all ethnicity's. I hope they will be spared from people you see in this picture below!

I mean she is only 16 and teens do stupid things, but at least what she could have done is turn it around by making a public apology! This is what she says on her official this day NO apology..... that is shocking to me and totally a bad choice for her career!!

Miley Cyrus is responding to criticism that she mocked Asians in a photograph of the tween star stretching the corners of her eyes.
"In NO way was I making fun of any ethnicity!" Cyrus wrote Thursday in a posting on her official website. "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."


Korean American comedian Margaret Cho is not happy with Miley Cyrus and her ignorant ways! The troublesome Disney star inspired the funny lady to pen a song, just for her!

Here’s what Miz Cho thinks about Cyrus' ‘making a funny face’ incident:

Miley Cyrus made some chinky eyes

Standing behind an Asian guy
I don’t know if this should fly
As if there wasn’t enough to despise

I wasn’t necessarily a fan of
Her, her dad, or Hannah Montana
I tend to prefer the songs of Rihanna
Racism against Asians is simply bananas!

Oh Miley!
Chinky eyes make you look wily

prejudice isn’t thought of so highly
it doesn’t make us all smiley

Why is there nothing that Asians can do?

To make fun of other races as easily as you
Why isn’t racism against Asians taboo?

Why are we always so racially screwed!

All you have to do is pull at your face

To make your eyelids resemble our race

This kind of joke has no proper place

Miley Cyrus is a disgrace!

Miley you are a bad example to the youngsters who look up at you and you should come out and make your wrong doings right by making a public apology!!

And I hope that we don't need to write another blog posting about such a bad behaviour against human kind!! We shouldn't need to answer the question anymore what race you are? Maybe this mocking would be over and in the past!

We are all HUMAN RACE!!

Have a lovely day!

I hadn't seen this response by Margaret Cho yet. I love it. She is always so great!

Good post. Saw that pic when Rosemary posted it. It's so crude and disrespectful! Totally unexceptable...especially that she never even apologized!

Ik denk zo......iemand kan je alleen beledigen als je beledigd wil worden......het zegt iets over het meisje niets over aziatische from here

Amen. I am Asian/Filipino and have experienced ignorance in that form when I was younger and can you believe it 2 years ago? My children are mixed but do look more like me. I was sad to see such a young celeb, who kids adore, make this ignorant gesture. I thought we moved beyond this but sad to say that racism still exists.
