After all of the things we have seen Miley do… THIS IS WHAT GETS HER BANNED?!
‘I was just making a goofy face’: Miley Cyrus denies she’s racist after controversial photo.
The actual ban was put in place a few years ago but just started to coming “public” aka viral after Miley was set to visit the country. I guess they didn’t forget.
Seriously. This is the same person who did all this:
But none of that got her booted. Nope.
Singer Miley Cyrus is banned from visiting China after posting a ‘racist photo’ on social media with her friend.
She was banned back in 2009 after posing with a group of friends and using her fingers to ‘make her eyes look slanted’.
The Hannah Montana star was forced to apologize saying she was just ‘goofing around’.
Here’s the photo in question:
Forget trying to go on tour there. They won’t even let her image show:
The government also banned any broadcast of her TV show, films or sales of her merchandise, NME reports.
Chinese foreign minister Yang Jiechi said at the time:
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.
After being slated for the photo, she wrote on her official website:
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 and out of context. I’m no way was I making fun of any ethnicity.
According to Mail Online, a spokesman for the Organisation of Chinese American (OCA) said:
The photo falls within a long and unfortunate history of people mocking and denigrating individuals of Asian descent.
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 friends.
The OCA said the inclusion of an Asian American in the photo, the only one in a group of eight who wasn’t pulling a face, did not make the image acceptable.
