Miley Cyrus is in trouble for something fairly unexpected—a photo where she makes a questionable, potentially racist gesture.
TMZ obtained the photo, which showed Miley Cyrus standing around with friends. Miley is the one sitting in the middle, on the lap of her boyfriend, Justin Gaston. They were stretching their eyelids—widely recognized as a racist gesture towards Asians. Despite an Asian-American present in the picture, an organization still objects to the photo.
The OCA, an Asian-American activist group in the U.S., is demanding an apology from Cyrus.
It doesn’t take a genius to see that Cyrus could have possibly been intoxicated or under the influence. As seen in the photo above, a male is holding a glass of wine.
Much more than the controversial poses the group makes for the camera, what does this picture say about Cyrus in general? Is she surrounding herself with the right people? Look at past teenage stars, such as Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan. I’m personally not one to jump to conclusions, but it certainly doesn’t help her public image.
What do you think? Is this a racist situation like the activist group claims, or is this mere overreaction?
