The comedian pens a song about Cyrus's recent racist photo controversy

February 12, 2009 04:40 PM

A week after Miley Cyrus addressed her photo flap, the singer continues to draw criticism from some in the Asian community – including Korean comedian Margaret Cho.

Cyrus denied she was mocking Asians when a photograph of her pulling at the corners of her eyes surfaced on the Internet. “There are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces,” Cyrus wrote on her official Web site. “Well, I’m sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context!”

In turn, Cho took to her blog on Wednesday to condemn Cyrus’s actions, posting the lyrics to a song she wrote about the Disney star.

“I am so upset by Miley Cyrus, I think it warrants a song,” she wrote on her blog.

Among the song’s lyrics: “All you have to do is pull at your face; To make your eyelids resemble our race; This kind of joke has no proper place; Miley Cyrus is a disgrace!”

Following criticism over her initial response, Cyrus posted a second apology on her fan site, saying, “I really wanted to stress how sorry I am if the photo of me with my friends offended anyone. I have learned a valuable lesson from this and know that sometimes my actions can be unintentionally hurtful.”
