Miley Cyrus still receiving scrutiny for "racially offensive" photo

They're not letting her off easy this time!

Even after Miley Cyrus issued a second apology for her "racially offensive photo," Korean American comedian, Margaret Cho, was so outraged by Miley Cyrus' latest photo scandal that she wrote a song!

On her official blog, Cho writes

I am so upset by Miley Cyrus, I think it warrants a song!

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!

Additionally, a Los Angeles woman has filed a class-action lawsuit against Cyrus on behalf on the city's entire Asian Pacific Islander population. She claims they are all entitled to civil rights damages because of Cyrus' photo.

According to Lucie J. Kim, she and her "compliants" (which could theoretically be about 1 million people), are each entitled to $4,000 in damages.

The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday in L.A. Superior Court. It states Cyrus "knew or should have known that her images would be publicly disseminated via the media, which Cyrus knew focused on her private life, specifically TMZ."

Is this woman taking it too far?
At this rate, Miley's gonna hate Asians even more!

That is a little far, but I don't like Miley anyways. She's so rich anyways so a little suing wouldn't hurt her bank account.
