Kate Gosselin Fires Back at Racist Allegations

Kate Gosselin Fires Back at Racist Allegations

Shes not one to take controversy lying down, and Kate Gosselin immediately spoke out against the claims that shes somehow prejudiced against people of Asian descent.

After a photo of the Kate Plus 8 starlet surfaced in which she seems to be pulling her eyes back in mockery, Gosselin was quick to explain.

It was a happy time for me and Jon, smiling and “goofing off” together. Jon and I were opening fan mail together one afternoonwhich often filled the garage of our Elizabethtown homeand when we opened this plastic Asian dress up wig sent from a caring fan, we smiled, each taking turns posing in it and snapping photos (on my phone) of each other. Naturally, I “slanted” my eyes to show him my best Asian impression, which made him smile.”

“At that time, a common topic of our show was “everybody”s Asian” except for mommy, so a thoughtful fan figured she”d help me look Asian too! It”s normal to talk about and even “exaggerate” the feature differences between family members of a biracial family as they are noticed by curious growing children within the family. These types of discoveries and at home discussions are a normal part of being a loving accepting biracial family and it does not make any of us prejudice!”

Kate also poined out, “I married an Asian. I have eight biracial children therefore I”m quite certain that I”m the last person that could be called a racist.”
