That Miley Cyrus sure knows how to court attention for all the wrong reasons, doesn't she? A recent photo of her and her friends slanting their eyes has outraged Asian American group The OCA, who are demanding an apology from the 16-year-old Disney star.

"The photograph of Miley Cyrus and other individuals slanting their eyes currently circulating the Internet is offensive to the Asian Pacific American community and sets a terrible example for her many young fans," the OCA told TMZ.

"This image falls within a long and unfortunate history of people mocking and denigrating individuals of Asian descent.

"Not only has Miley Cyrus and the other individuals in the photograph encouraged and legitimized the taunting and mocking of people of Asian descent, she has also insulted her many Asian Pacific American fans.

"The inclusion of an Asian Pacific American individual in the photo does not make it acceptable."
