The OCA, an Asian American advocacy group, wants Miley Cyrus and everyone to know that this image falls within a long and unfortunate history of people mocking and denigrating individuals of Asian descent.
George Wu, the group’s exec director says:
“Not only has Miley Cyrus and the other individuals in the photograph encouraged and legitimized the taunting and mocking of people of Asian descent, she has also insulted her many Asian Pacific American fans.
The inclusion of an Asian Pacific American individual in the photo does not make it acceptable.
OCA hopes that Miley Cyrus will apologize to her fans and the APA community for this lapse in judgment and takes the opportunity to better understand why the gesture is offensive.”
“The inclusion of an Asian Pacific American individual in the photo does not make it acceptable.” LOL…Right, he’s just there as a cover.
