LOS ANGELES, CA – Miley Cyrus has been accused of racism against Asians after a controversial photo was published. The Chinese government is not pleased.
The following photo was distributed online, of Cyrus and friends pulling their eyes slanted while sitting next to an unidentified Asian American boy.
Cyrus has yet to comment, but Asian American groups have already called for an apology. And now the Chinese government is also taking a stand.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China has announced the immediate barring of Miley Cyrus from entering the country. The government has also banned any broadcast of her TV show, films, and any sales of merchandise.
The ban is currently indefinite.
Foreign minister Yang Jiechi has stated, “Miss Cyrus has made it clear she is no friend of China or anyone of East Asian descent. We have no interest in further polluting our children’s minds with her American ignorance.”
An anonymous source hinted that Cyrus plans to fly to Beijing to perform for the Premier’s children in hopes of persuading him to lift the ban.
