Cho Attacks Cyrus Over Controversial Photo

Comedienne MARGARET CHO isn't laughing about a photo in which MILEY CYRUS and friends appear to be poking fun at Asians.
The Korean-American admits she was appalled by the image, which first appeared online last week (ends06Feb09) - and she's still not happy after two separate public apologies from the teen star.
Cho has even penned a song, in which she slams the Hannah Montana star.
The comic sings, "I wasnt necessarily a fan of her, her dad, or Hannah Montana/I tend to prefer the songs of Rihanna/Racism against Asians is simply bananas"
She adds, "Oh Miley!/Chinky eyes make you look wily/Prejudice isnt thought of so highly/It doesnt make us all smiley... 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!"
Cyrus first apologised for the ill-advised pose after the Organization of Chinese Americans director, George Wu, demanded she say sorry. And when Wu suggested the singer/actress' first statement wasn't convincing, Cyrus apologised again.
Earlier this week (beg09Feb09) Cyrus took to her website to issue a second apology.
She wrote, "I want to thank all of my fans for their support not only this week, but always! 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."

Is this chick for real? She creates her entire career out of offensive jabs at people's culture and religion and some idiot teenager's camera phone antics is what gets her drawers in a twist? DIAF
