The controversy over a recent photo of Miley Cyrus
hasn't died down, but it looks like the teen celebrity is all ready for it to pass. Just a couple of days ago, the Hannah Montana
star released a statement regarding her seemingly offensive picture taken with a group of friends slanting their eyes as if mocking Asian people. She posted her first “apology” on her fansite, but she found it necessary to post another one.
Just last Monday, Cyrus decided to issue another comment on the matter. And this time, it sounds like a real apology at last. Her first attempt was criticized for being too defensive, but she finally found the right words with her most recent announcement.
The Organization of Chinese Americans, who was quick with their response to the Miley Cyrus photo, has yet to reply to Cyrus' recent declaration. OCA Executive Director George Wu knew the first wasn't enough, saying “The picture is offensive and now this statement is inadequate. It's not a real apology. We're not backing down without a fuller apology.”
They kept waiting for the Disney star to really ask for forgiveness, and it seems as though they've got a better one now. Miley Cyrus seems to have buckled down and written something wherein she truly admits her fault, like a responsible role model.
“I want to thank all of my fans for their support not only this week, but always!” she began. “I really wanted to stress how sorry I am if the photo of me with my friends offended anyone.”
The Hannah Montana
sensation continued, “I have learned a valuable lesson from this and know that sometimes my actions can be unintentionally hurtful.”
She even brought her beliefs into the issue. “I know everything is part of God's ulitmate plan, and mistakes happen so that eventually I will become the woamn He aspires me to be. Peace and love, Miles.”
