Miley Cyrus, undoubtedly one of the world’s most popular teen stars, has been dragged into limelight again. But this time, the reason for the public spot light is not something about which she can boast of. Miley’s photograph in which she was pictured as “slanting her eyes” caught the attention of the film industry.
The snap was open to all as it was displayed on the net. Of course, the industry reacted outrageously. Inside sources are now whispering that the photo is going to cost her this season’s awards.
According to sources, this year’s edition of the Kids’ Choice Awards, scheduled to take place towards the last of March, might mark the end of Miley’s publicity. They feel that she is no longer going to be selected as favourite TV female star for her role in “Hannah Montana.”
However, this is indeed sad rumour for Miley as she was holding this titl4e for the past couple of years. Whatever be the outcome, it is true that many of the ardent fans of this singer turned actress is upset by this photo scandal. After all, it is their votes that should decide whether she should retain the prestigious title or not.
However, the photo from the actress’ personal album has triggered response from many organisations. A non-profit organisation, OCA, has even suggested that the actress should come up and apologise for being part of the photo scandal. However, Miey has refused to provide an immediate response.
“Not only has Miley Cyrus and the other individuals in the photograph encouraged and legitimised 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.” That was how the organisation responded to the photo scandal through a press statement.
