Miley Cyrus Apology Rejected By Asian Americans  

Posted by: shilpz in , , , ,

The scandal over pictures of Miley Cyrus appearing to mock Asians is refusing to die down - officials at a leading Asian-American organization have rejected her apology, insisting it's "not enough".

The 16-year-old pop star was forced to say sorry after photos of her and a group of male pals making slanty-eyed gestures appeared online.

Cyrus 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 (sic) and out of context! In NO way was I making fun of any ethnicity! I was simply making a goofy face."

But officials at the Organization of Chinese Americans, who first complained about the candid shots, aren't satisfied. Director George Wu says, "It's not a real apology. We're not backing down without a fuller apology."
