The government also banned any broadcast of her TV show, films or sales of her merchandise.
Chinese foreign minister Yang Jiechi said at the time:
Miss Cyrus has made it clear she is no friend of China or anyone of East Asian descent. We have no interest in further polluting our children’s minds with her American ignorance.
She wrote her website that:
I’ve been told there are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces! Well, I’m sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context. I’m no way was I making fun of any ethnicity.

According to reports, a spokesman for the Organisation of Chinese American (OCA) said:
The photo 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 legitimised the taunting and mocking of people of Asian descent, she has also insulted her many Asian Pacific American friends.
The OCA said the inclusion of an Asian American in the photo, the only one in a group of eight who wasn’t pulling a face, did not make the image acceptable.
Also banned from China is the Icelandic singer, Bjork, was also told not to go back to the country after she showed her support for the Tibetan state during a 2008 concert in Shanghai.
