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.

To Number 6 - A few years ago this might have been seen as a "quick buck" scheme - BUT - Guess What?? These days it is REAL. YOU CAN'T EVEN GLANCE AT SOMEONE W/O 'HURTING THEIR POOR LITTLE FEELINGS' They probably won't get 4 Billion, but there will definately be a settlement or two or even ten! It is really out of control. I want to be the FIRST white person to sue for 'hurt feelings' for being called a cracker or being portrayed as a slave owner's DISTANT relative - or how about Jamie Floyd (courttv/realtv) who has a real problem w/ "Blond News Anchors" or how about the 'folks' that live in some poor white areas in the south - you know - REDNECKS?? or is it WHITE TRASH - oh.....wait - I forgot - we somehow DESERVE the very condemnation we are accused or dishing out every day. Wake Up number 6 - REAL HATE is HERE and doing very well --- Thank You.

WHAT????????? THIS IS THE most ridiculous thing I've EVER heard.

I guess they better sue me too, because I've made those eyes too. Oh wait! I'm not Miley Cyrus, I don't DO things like that because I'm not a celebrity!
