Miley Cyrus :: Asian or Racist?

herocious

Doctors have made their diagnosis:  The image has metastasized.  That’s right, the Internet is now teeming with what appears to be, at a glance, a group of teenagers showing their support for under-aged drinking while they mock the unidentified Asian-American.  But this image is indeed more than that, how else to explain the sheer magnitude of its metastasis?

The girl pictured to the right of the Asian-American, sitting on the lap of the boy in v-neck undershirt, rolled up sleeves, and gold medals, is none other than Miley Cyrus, the Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana cash cow.

Here’s what Miley has to say about the leakage on her official site:

Well, I’m sorry if 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 was anyone else, it would have been overlooked! I definitely feel like people are trying to make me out as the new ‘BAD GIRL’!

Of course, the old ‘BAD GIRL’ is Britney Spears, who, so Miley says, is “back on top of her game again.”  This logically makes Britney the media’s golden child and Miley the scapegoat.  Soon I’m sure we’ll see video clips of a shaved Miley Cyrus in a baggy sweatshirt jamming the tip of her furled umbrella into the side of an SUV.

But let’s return to the real matter at hand:  The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China has refused to accept Miley’s excuse/explanation that this picture was only one of her many goofy faces, not a racial stereotype.  The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China has chosen to immediately bar anything from being sold or broadcast related to the bubbly Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana.  This is what Yang Jiechi, foreign minister of China, had to say:

Miss Cyrus has made it clear she is no friend of China or anyone of East Asian descent. We have no interest in further polluting our children’s minds with her American ignorance.

Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus – born Destiny Hope Cyrus – swims laps in her LA manor  while she rehearses lines for both the real-life Miley Stewart and her undercover character, eponymous Hannah Montana, the teenage sensation.

Keep it locked on TOE for a video clip of Miley Cyrus slanting her eyes in Disney’s Hannah Montana.
