Disney cash cow Miley Cyrus says the picture of her slanting her eyes like an Asian was “simply” her “making a goofy face.”
“Well, I’m sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context!” she writes on her official fansite. “In NO way was I making fun of any ethnicity! I was simply making a goofy face. When did that become newsworthy?”
Playing the victim card, the 16-year-old singer-actress adds, “I definitely feel like the press is trying to make me out as the new ‘BAD GIRL’!”
Blindie believes Disney execs decided to not release a full statement (and instead released this “casual” yet most likely calculated blog entry) as to make it seem like the offensive photo was not offensive and those who did take offense are the ones who are the ‘bad guys’ for criticizing Cyrus.
