Miley Cyrus Slant-Eyes Lawsuit


The LA Times reports that the lawsuit brought against Miley Cyrus by Lucie J. Kim that sought $4,000 per person for each Asian LA teenager offended by this photo, was tossed by the Superior Court.  The lawsuit argued that the 16 year old entertainer had violated a California statute prohibiting race discrimination by corporations and companies.  The violation?  Letting this picture of her and her friends "mocking" Asian eyes be taken, and letting it get published on celebrity websites.  Really.

The only question is why didn't the Judge presiding over this bullshit lawsuit award sanctions against Ms. Kim's attorney, Henry Lee?
