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.

this picture is very misunderstood or people are taking advantage of this pic and want money. She may be rich but not that rich. btw, my best friend is asian and we do these face impressions as a joke (which he finds funny) not in the act of racism.

Miss. Lucie Kim needs to get over herself. This was a joke and she obviously thinks she is entitled to Miss. Cyrus' money, which she is not, because of this. The courts should not allow such childish cases. If asians are offended then sorry. I am sure asians have made fun of whites before so move on and stop wasting my time!
