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