For some reason, Miley Cyrus just keeps taking controversial and/or offensive pictures of herself. You would think after the multiple pictures with her bra clearly exposed, her lying on random boys' laps, and the Vanity Fair disaster, she'd think and realize that she and cameras don't exactly mix well. That's what normal people would think, but nope. Now Miley has another controversial picture, but this one could cost her big bucks.
The newest picture involves Miley (with boyfriend Justin Gaston and other assorted friends) slanting her eyes to make them look more “Asian.” Despite the fact there was an Asian in the picture, people find this picture offensive.
On the issue, Miley said, “I’ve…been told there are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces! Well, I’m sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context!”
On her official fansite, she was quoted saying, "I really wanted to stress how sorry I am if the photo of me with my friends offended anyone."
The problem I do have is someone is suing Miley over the picture for four billion dollars. Regardless of whether you find the picture offensive, this is just ridiculous. Four billion dollars. Yeah, I'm sorry you find this picture offensive, but that doesn't mean you get four billion dollars. Everyone gets offended over something, but everyone isn't cashing out over it.
Lucie J. Kim is taking Miley to the L.A. Superior Court, representing the one million Asian Pacific Islanders in Los Angeles, on the grounds that she was “A victim of [Cyrus'] discriminatory acts.”
Kim goes on to claim that Miley "knew or should have known that her image would be publicly disseminated via the media, which Cyrus knew focused on her private life." Her argument was that Miley "had actual knowledge that her conduct was in fact a form of racism, prejudice and mockery of the physical attributes of Asian Pacific Islanders."
Give me a break. Kim is just greedy.
Besides, people can be really stupid. It's not like Miley Cyrus is the only one doing stuff like this. Just pay a visit to Facebook. She's a teenager. She's allowed to be a little stupid sometimes.
I can't believe I'm actually defending Miley Cyrus, but when it comes to stupid lawsuits this one takes the cake. Hopefully the L.A. Court will just throw this garbage out. Honestly, it just wastes everyone's time.
