Margaret Cho: Miley Cyrus Is a Disgrace

Korean comedian Margaret Cho blasted Miley Cyrus Wednesday for the recent photo of the teen star posing in a racially stereotypical gesture.

Last week, a photo surfaced showing Cyrus, 16, sitting on her boyfriend Justin Gaston’s lap surrounded by a group of friends all making a stereotypical gesture by pulling their eyes into a slanted position. The gesture is commonly thought to be offensive to Asian Pacific Islanders.

On a blog post entitled “Oh Miley,” Cho wrote that she was “so upset by Miley Cyrus” that she thought it warranted a song criticizing the Hannah Montana star.

“Oh Miley; Chinky eyes make you look wily; Prejudice isn’t thought of So highly; it doesn’t make us all smiley.”

Cho also labels the Cyrus a “disgrace” and pondered “why isn’t racism against Asians taboo?”

Cyrus denied that she meant the gesture to be racially offensive on her own blog and said that she was simply making a “goofy face.” She later issued an apology after critics said her response was simply too little too late.

Earlier this week, a Los Angeles woman filed a lawsuit against Cyrus on behalf of Asian Pacific Islanders for $4 billion.

The OCA, an organization dedicated to advancing the social, political and economic well-being of Asian Pacific Americans in the U.S., has also slammed Cyrus for the photo.
