Judge: Miley Cyrus Isn't So Hanoi'ing After All

11/20/2009 3:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Miley Cyrus won't have to find $4 billion to pay off all the Asians in Los Angeles -- a judge officially let the singer off the hook in a lawsuit over that offensive "Hanoi Montana" photo she took earlier this year.

Miley Cyrus

This morning, a judge threw out the case filed by an Asian woman named Lucie Kim -- on behalf of all the Asians in L.A. -- who claimed the photo was offensive and Miley should have known the media would get its collective hands on it.

After the photo went public, Miley apologized a bunch of times and then went on a campaign of sushi dinners.

Kim claims she's considering filing an appeal to the judge's ruling.

It is not against the law to make a face.
This should have been dismissed with malice

I don't think this case should have been dismissed. Yeah, people do make fun of other people but that doesn't mean it's okay. If I were Asain I'd probably be offended too, however. Suing for monetary gain just makes you look bad, she should just sue for defamation considering she IS mocking them, I mean just make her realize it's not cool. Since the case was dismissed Miley has learned nothing from this, only if you make fun of other people it's okay - you can get away with it. And what's up with her stupid homemade videos, she always has to pick on someone else, she has issues seriously the only reason you pick on someone else is jealousy, she reminds me of a redneck... absolutely no manners and no class.

There's an Asian kid in the pic. It obviously wasn't meant to be racist. Is she trying to say that the Asian kid is being racist against Asians?

I could give a damn about Miley or her music or her existence but 4 billion dollars?! Come on, are you serious? One woman took up the cause for every other asian? This is the dumbest sh%t I've heard since Tila's rant the other day. You can't sue someone over a photo! If you could don't you think the jews would be going after Taylor Swift? the fact that this lady tried at all is laughable. Miley is just some dumb little kid with too much money and too much time on her hands. That's not to excuse what she did but what do you expect?
You even look at the picture and the asian guy sitting right next to her doesn't seem to be unhappy about it. If I could sue everybody that I deemed inappropriate I'd be living on easy street. the world has gotten way to sissifyed in my opinion.

This is exactly why we need Tort Reform laws passed in this country. So much time and money is wasted on crap like this. Would go a long way in health care reform also.

My question is if she had gotten the money would she have shared it with all of the Asian people in LA or kept it for herself?
People will do about ANYTHING to make a couple bucks these days.
Miley apologized, and admitted what she did was wrong.
LET IT GO!!

Harvey,
Do you think Oprah's announcement was more self promotion than being sincere?
