Miley Cyrus‘ half-hearted "apology" regarding a picture of the tween star and her friends making slanty-eyed faces isn’t convincing anyone, especially the Organization of Chinese Americans.
"The picture is offensive and now this statement is inadequate," George Wu, Executive Director of the OCA, an Asian-American equality group tells Celebuzz.

Yesterday Miley issued a statement on her official web site, saying she was sorry that some people misinterpreted her goofy faces, not that she was actually apologetic for making the face in the first place.
"I’ve also been told there are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces!" she wrote. "Well, I’m sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context!"
That’s not enough, says Wu: "It’s not a real apology. We’re not backing down without a fuller apology."
Your move, Miley.
