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 cyrus deserves to pay. Another white trash girl. That's why America is one of the worst countries in the world.

OMG! first of all, they all are doing it!!! You can't just sue one person when everyone in the pic is doing the exact same thing. Let's all single out the rich girl and sue her. This case is going to be laughed right out of court. You can't sue someone for insulting you and hurting your feelings. People sue celebs for the dumbest of reasons all because they want money. This woman needs to get a life.

I think Miley's acting like any normal teenager acts. There are billions of other teens in the world who pose like this all the time, it doesn't make sense that she's getting flack for having fun with her friends. It isn't even racial when she has an asian friend in the picture with her, anyway.

Okay, this is way too much.... how many kids do this at one point in time or another, I guess they should sue everyone. This kind of stuff is getting WAY out of hand. Maybe the next time a different race pokes fun at my race (white) I should sue. Wait I can't cuz I am white!

Sick and tired of this crap!

Puuuuuuuuh lease. 4 billion? A bit outragous to go to this cry baby. She just wants to make a quick buck and a name. Maybe she'll take all of the money to and donated to the Asian countries that perform all the surgeries on the women who have their eyes changed to look like caucasians.
