    Asians Want $4 Billion From Miley Cyrus - TMZ

    Asians Want $4 Billion From Miley Cyrus - TMZ.com

    (Be sure and check out the above link for the photo in question)


    A Los Angeles woman has filed a class action suit against Miley Cyrus, claiming she mocked Asians in a recent photo by slanting her eyes. Price tag: $4 billion.

    Lucie J. Kim claims to represent more than 1 million Asian Pacific Islanders who live in L.A. County. Kim claims when Cyrus posed for the photo, she "knew or should have known that her image would be publicly disseminated via the media, which Cyrus knew focused on her private life, specifically TMZ."

    Kim says in the suit, filed Wednesday in L.A. County Superior Court, that each Asian Pacific Islander is entitled to the minimum damages for a civil rights violation -- $4,000. Add it up -- $4 billion!

    Kim says Miley's "just a kid" defense doesn't fly. She says it's like Paris Hilton claiming to be just a kid. Ouch.

    It's tougher for young performers to be in the public eye than ever. I think Miley is more of a marketed Disney product, and not much of a true talent.

    Still, it's sad to see opportunists looking for any reason they can dream up to file frivolous lawsuits. As if the girl doesn't get picked on enough by a clamoring paparazzi, lawsuits like this must really frustrate and wear her down.

    This LA "lady B" will get nowhere with her legal action. Hope she gets bit by a skunk near a river, and ran over by a golf cart all in the same day. Wonder if her name is Sue?

    While you're at it, include Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall & Ron White... the whole Blue Collar group.

    It's amazing how sue happy this world has become.

    Why not? I so much easier to act like you are offended and sue than to be productive in this world.

    Re: Asians Want $4 Billion From Miley Cyrus - TMZ

    Oh sheesh... I mock everyone all the time. Does that mean that I have to pay up? Of course not because I'm not a multi-millionaire. It's sad that this woman is filing a suit because, as a taxpayer, she's wasting my money!

    Find something worthwhile to complain and start a motion for. Like the fact that the Jonas Brothers are an affront to all musical sensibilities.

    Sheesh.

    What a joke. I wonder if she'll also include Miley's friends in the lawsuit since their doing the same thing.

    Oh, to be king for a day. The things I could accomplish...

    Re: Asians Want $4 Billion From Miley Cyrus - TMZ

    Hey, if she can give me some of that $4 billion, more power to her.

    But that is a ridiculous suit though I can also see why she's doing it. My perception is that the vast population feels more okay about making fun of Asians than any other group because most won't do anything about it. But whatever, that's my perception only in the last ten years. This lawsuit will raise awareness... awareness that was never really there.

    Moving on, Miley apologized didn't she? It's too bad that friends of celebs don't know better than to put up photos that will produce a media frenzy. It's one thing to make fun of people within your own social circle.. it's another to open that circle to the entire world.

    I wonder if Margaret Cho is going to sue herself.

    She does have a funny line to counter balance that kind of thing -

    She says (with an accent) "Why, your eyes are SO BIIIIIIIIIG!"

    I don't know whether to laugh, or sue

    This is crap.

    That's the only thing that springs to mind when I hear or see anything about the lawsuit.

    I'm no fan of Miley Cyrus, but this woman needs to be thumped upside the head for clogging up the courts with this BS.

    I'll gladly do it with zero cost to Mr and Mrs John Q Taxpayer.

    Okay you bring up a good point. Margaret Cho is more offensive being herself than Miley Cyrus is doing the 'chink eye'.

    Ugh. I just want to throw up now. Margaret Cho and Sandra Oh.. they should pay me royalties every time I see them on screen.

    Maybe both sides will sue the people and the news outlets who publish the picture.
