Kat Von D: I Am Not a Racist!

2/9/2008 1:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"LA Ink" star Kat Von D took to the Internet and the streets of Hollywood yesterday to tell her fans she did not pen the anti-Semitic message she is accused of writing.

TMZ spotted Kat at Avalon last night, and while signing autographs she told our photog, "It was an obvious case of forgery."

On her MySpace page, Kat wrote a long blog post that said, in part, "The first time I saw the actual photo with the writing on it, I almost puked, considering, those are things I would NEVER even think about, let alone write!"

As TMZ reported, Ami James (Kat's former boss on "Miami Ink") received a photo with a swastika and a flaming Star of David that was allegedly written by Kat. She denies it, and TLC, which airs "LA Ink," is standing by her.

I don't think she did it. It doesn't make sense that she would sign it or even write it on a picture of herself. She knows she is in the public eye and would even risk it for a chocolate biscuit! Love Kat but only if she isn't racist.

You know, the second she was on Miami Ink, I right away couldn't stand her. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if she did this-everyone's acting like since she's part Latina supposedly it therefore negates any racist allegations,but that's ridiculous.Kind of like she probably thinks that just because she's covered in tattoos that automatically makes her open-minded & non-judgemental, but notice she only seems to associate with people that look like her. I just can't stand her,& she tries too hard to act like she's cool.
