Kate Gosselin: Mocking Asians in New Photo?

by at . Comments

A new photo of Kate Gosselin in which she appears to be making fun of Asians has sparked controversy, though it's unclear where it originated.

It looks to have first surfaced on Twitter Sunday, through an account that was just recently created and has sent out only one tweet ... the Kate photo:

Kate Gosselin Mocks Asians

The photo was referenced in Robert Hoffman’s infamous e-book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World, so it stands to reason he would be involved.

“I’ll bet that Kate wishes that she hadn’t been photographed making a "slant-eye pose" with a big smile on her face though," her biggest critic mused.

"Kate Gosselin has eight part-Asian children. Her ex-husband Jon is half Korean. Is it ok for Kate to do something like that? Ask Miley Cyrus."

"She did the same thing and it didn’t go over to well with the public.”

Hoffman wrote an e-book filled with information from Kate’s computer; he claimed the info was in her trash and that’s where he retrieved it from.

Others believe Jon Gosselin helped him get the information as part of a bid to defame his wife; the book was eventually yanked from Amazon.

An anti-Kate website was also taken down amid the scrutiny.

According to Radar, the alleged Asian-mocking pic appears to have been taken in her garage, which could help confirm its authenticity.

Several scenes from Jon & Kate Plus 8, showing Jon fixing up the garage, reveal what appears to be a match in terms of the surroundings.

Why she would be making that face is still unclear, of course.

The controversy comes as Kate plans to sue Jon Gosselin and Robert Hoffman in federal court for plotting to profit by planting negative information about her.

Given that impending battle, the mysterious surfacing of this photo is generating controversy, outrage and certainly more questions than answers.


How is this mocking?
Asians are paranoid LOL.

@ Kim

We are NOT paranoid, I don't think it's funny.. Im Asian and Im NOT happy w/what Gosselin did, that was more than rude..


Shez fugly


She's as crazy as a loon, and I wouldn't put anything past her. Praying for her children, the only ones that should matter, yet seem not to, even to her.


She probably leaked the photo to get herself back in the news.


That probably isn't even what she's doing. Maybe she's pulling back the skin near her eyes to describe a facelift procedure. I saw a woman do that once. She was not making fun of Asians, she worked for a reconstructive surgeon and was describing some procedure in an exaggerated way. Innocent enough.


Her entire little family is Korean so I would think this is not an offensive act. Please pick on Octomom and leave Kate alone. I am not a Kate fan but her children are at least clean and fed. You must all be saints.

@ dee

Clean and fed aren't all children need. What they need first and foremost is LOVED, not directed, not instructed, but LOVED - and Kate seems never to LOVE without criticism or without strings attached. That's sad for her children. I pray for them.


I'm Asian, yet i'm not offended. i don't think this is a mocking pose. our eyes are small and that's one of our best features. posing like that doesn't imply that it's funny, it's not, but it's not a big deal too. People here that have rounded eyes do that too, nothing to fuzz about, duh.


She is still beautiful.


I thinj that its offensive 2 do that wut if sumbody made fun of her labor pic?


Is she making fun of her own children??? Another nut!!!!
