Toby Keith Adds Racist Slant to Nobel Party

12/14/2009 7:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Remember 30 seconds ago, when we published that awesome Nobel Peace Prize party footage??? Well, it's ruined now ... thanks to a moment where Toby Keith made a gesture deemed offensive to Asians.

Toby Keith: Click to watch
During "Rapper's Delight," Toby slants his eyes when Will Smith raps the line "to the black, to the white, the red, and the brown, the purple and yellow."

As you can guess, the gesture occurred right when the word "yellow" was uttered -- roughly 1:25 into the footage.

Way to ruin the Nobel Peace Prize party, Toby.

STFU, TMZ!! I'm so tired of the media BS on racism crap! Everyone needs to quit being so damn sensitive and the media really needs to chill on hyping this garbage up. Who cares?!!!

First.
I don't think that was anywhere near racist, or even insensitive, but hey, let's denounce him anyways! I predict this will make the news 0 times.
