Asians Want $4 Billion From Miley Cyrus

2/12/2009 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

miley cyrus sued

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.

Miley's peeps could not immediately be reached for comment.

Miley hasn't had to pay yet. She SHOULDN'T have to either. We here in the US have the right to FREE SPEECH. If you're offended-GET BENT!!! But, too many losers have nothing else better to do than run and sue someone. This BS is ridiculous. I think I'll sue Ms.Kim for forcing me to undergo extreme humiliation at the thought of a woman being that FREAKING stupid. As a woman, I will probably be made fun of because Ms. Kim and I both HAVE UTERUSES. Everyone will think I'm as stupid as she is and it isn't fair. Violating my civil rights and forcing me to suffer the devastating humiliation with all the women in the world being judged by Ms. Kim's standard......More than $4 billion. Where's my check, Ms Kim? Multiply $4,000 by every woman in this country for your STUPID tax..WORTHLESS LOSER!!!!

Has anyone every wondered why Miley is the only one being sued? I agree that she is stupid but there are 5 other people in the picture as well. Then they all should be sued for 4 billion dollars. It is just because she has money. This should be thrown out of court and the woman suing should have to pay for all court costs. This is the only way our society will stop these frivilous suits!

the picture is an obvious plaything between friends: non-asians making asian faces.....and the asian one making a caucasian face..... fun things between friends ! Miley Cirus should not apologize anything to anyone ! Shame on others to pressure her, and her friends.

Wow, I am Asian and this is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. I think this picture is pretty stupid, but why sweat this teenager. She clearly has no class, they need to just leave it alone. People get offended everyday by things other people do. Take it for what it is and keep it moving

If this flies, then I am suing all white people who inject fat into their lips. I think they may be mocking me as a black woman with big lips.

Ok Down with Whitey.. Stop being a racist bastard. because the "white men" are not all idiots and shouldn't have to pay for others mistakes. And what about all the other damn races discriminating on everyone else. It's not just the whites anymore smart ass, its everyone one. So get your head out of your ass and realize she's just a kid and it was not meant to be racist it was a joke. kids do that. so shut the heck up.

sorry miss kim there is a new law in this country called the first amendment which gives miley the right to express herself even if you disagree with it that is why people that paint jesus in a bottle of urine also have the right to do that to even though it greatly offends christians.
