American Asian groups are getting their noodles in a knot after Toby Keith did an impromptu eye-pulling gesture at a Nobel Peace Prize party recently. Says Popeater,
An Asian American group says Toby Keith “embarrassed himself and his country” this week at a Nobel Peace Prize party in Norway when he stretched his eyes back while Will Smith rapped the word “yellow.”
Besides embarrassing all sorts of people, a rep for the Asian American Justice Center tells TMZ that Keith “denigrated the Noble (sic) Peace Prize and offended Asians and Asian Americans by using a crude, racist hand gesture.”
Piling on is the Media Action Network for Asians, who believes Keith “is telling his Asian fans ‘you don’t matter, you’re not on my radar.’”
The incident occured while Smith was rocking a rendition of ‘Rapper’s Delight,’ and Keith began pantomiming along with the lyrics. His rep told TMZ on Tuesday that “No one at the concert thought Toby was out of line.”
When did Asians turn into such wussies? They come from a hardcore tradition of kamikazes, ninjas, hara-kiri, samurai, caning, hell, even their women would bind their baby girls’ feet! Now you’re all offended because somebody pulled their eye? Cry me the fucking Yangtze.
Forward to the :23 mark for the shocking moment:
