Another Miley Cyrus Photo Flap: Possible Asian Mockery

by at . Comments

From now on, when someone says "Cheeeese," a voice in Miley Cyrus' head should say, "RUN!"

No, the teen icon has not stripped down for any new half-naked photos.

But she has gotten herself mixed up in another picture controversy, this time by striking a pose that some may interpret as being disrespectful of another culture.

In the shot below, Miley is sitting on the lap of boyfriend Justin Gaston. Along with others, she's pulling her eyelids apart, perhaps in a mocking gesture directed at the facial structure of Asians.

Would the photo above be a big deal if Miley Cyrus were a typical 16-year old? Of course not.

Like Michael Phelps and his bong use, however, celebrities - especially those that peddle their image for fortune and fame - are held to a higher standard.

With that in mind, chime in below: Is Miley acting inappropriately in this picture?

You have to be racist to suggest that this isn't. She would be apologizing before this ever got out if she were mocking African Americans.

The bigger problem is that the one kid have a glass of wine in his hands. All of these kids are blazed out of their minds. She's going to be in rehab by 18!

This girl seriously needs to think about what she's doing. Yeah, they all look pretty drunk and why is she hanging about with people who are all in like their 20s? I hate people doing that!

Taken out of context anything could be said of this photo...if you were to talk to the people in the photo when it was taken....perhaps the asian person in the photo had suggested that we all take a picture where we look like this..and yes..they all look like they have been drinking pretty heavily..note the wine glass in the lower right hand corner....Under age???perhaps
