Joe Jonas is at the center of a photo scandal in which he appears to mock Asians -- just one month after fellow teen singing sensation Miley Cyrus was forced to apologize for a similar prank.

The 19-year-old Jonas Brothers star, older brother to Cyrus' ex-boyfriend Nick, appears to pull his eyes with his pinky fingers as he strikes a similar pose to the Hannah Montana star in a picture that has leaked online, reports HuffingtonPost.com (click here to see the photo).

Cyrus, 16, is facing legal action from a group of Asian Pacific Islanders over her own photo controversy after images of the singer and a group of friends pulling the same pose appeared online last month.

She apologized for the photos but it was rejected by civil rights activists and they are now seeking damages for the offense.

A spokesperson for Jonas was not available for comment as WENN went to press.
