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.

I watched the video over and over and didn't see any such thing. Race baiting is racist.

I am not a country music fan, so I am not defending Toby Keith but it didn't look like anything to me. It looked more like he was rubbing his eye. It isn't like he pulled a Miley.

More than being racist its just plain hokey, red neck and about 35 years late. I mean, that's what kids did on the playground in 1975. What a geek. Big dumb red neck Okie.

It's not like rap is real music, complain to the singer who thinks purple is the alternative color of a misbehavin' woman.

What is Mr. "We'll put a boot in your ass" doing at a Nobel PEACE Prize party. His brand of blind war mongering jingoism got us into invading Iraq and Afghanistan. Instead of targeting just the terrorists fist pumping redneck jag offs like Tobey cheered on as W led us into doing the big dumb expensive thing. F**k him and all his red state, red neck, country music loving, inbred friends.

If anyone here actually knew anything about Toby Keith, then they would know he is a Democrat. He leans center right when it comes to supporting the military and the war efforts, but otherwise he is Democrat through and through. Sorry to burst the ole "right wing nut job" stigma you put on him. Democrats can poke fun at people, too, ya know! I think doing the squinty-eye thing is kinda juvenile at any age, though.

Toby Keith has always been an ignorant f--k of a human being. This is just one more example. Why was he even there?
