    Woman sues for $4 billion over Cyrus photo

    Los Angeles woman claims to represent one million Asian-Americans

    Access Hollywood

    LOS ANGELES - The uproar over the Miley Cyrus photo that some Asian groups have deemed offensive has spilled over to the courtroom.

    According to court documents obtained by Access Hollywood, a Los Angeles woman is suing Miley over the photograph — for an amount that could add up to over $4 billion.

    According to court documents, Lucie J. Kim, who brought the suit against the pop star, claims to represent over 1 million people of Asian Pacific Islander descent in the Los Angeles area. Kim claims that she and others are victims "of [Cyrus’] discriminatory acts.”

    The photo in question, which surfaced online last week, shows Cyrus with a group of friends, including boyfriend Justin Gaston, slanting their eyes and squinting at the camera. The teen queen initially called the photo uproar “something out of nothing,” and said she was “simply making a goofy face.”

    On Monday, Cyrus addressed the controversial photo again on her official fansite, saying,” I really wanted to stress how sorry I am if the photo of me with my friends offended anyone.”

    In the suit filed in LA County Superior Court, Kim claims that each Asian Pacific Islander in L.A. County, which the suit approximates to be around 1 million, is entitled to a minimum of $4,000 for a civil-rights violation stemming from the photograph. The damages could exceed $4 billion.

    Kim goes on to claim that Cyrus “knew or should have known that her image would be publicly disseminated via the media, which Cyrus knew focused on her private life.”

    The suit goes on to allege that the star “had actual knowledge that her conduct was in fact a form of racism, prejudice and mockery of the physical attributes of Asian Pacific Islanders.”

    Reps for Cyrus could not be reached for comment.

    4 billion, yea, good luck. I don't really see the problem with it. Hey, Robert Downey dyed his skin for Tropic Thunder for crying out loud.

    Margaret Cho penned a new song about this incident:

    "Miley Cyrus made some chinky eyes?

    Standing behind an Asian guy?

    I don’t know if this should fly?

    As if there wasn’t enough to despise...


    I wasn’t necessarily a fan of?

    Her, her dad, or Hannah Montana?

    I tend to prefer the songs of Rihanna

    Racism against Asians is simply bananas!


    Oh Miley!?

    Chinky eyes make you look wily

    prejudice isn’t thought of so highly

    it doesn’t make us all smiley


    Why is there nothing that Asians can do??

    To make fun of other races as easily as you?

    Why isn’t racism against Asians taboo??

    Why are we always so racially screwed!


    All you have to do is pull at your face?

    To make your eyelids resemble our race?

    This kind of joke has no proper place

    Miley Cyrus is a disgrace!"

    There's two people pulling their eyes, and four people squinting, all while hanging out with an asian dude who has to have some idea of what's going on. Also, she's like what, 16? Legal for me, but not exactly a mature age.

    This won't fly.

    Is it my imagination, or has Miley made a quantum leap in hotness over the last few months?

    Yes.

    She became legal in the state of Georgia in the last few months.

    It's your imagination. I really don't get the appeal of this girl, she's good looking sure, but not [​IMG] or anything.
