Toby Keith -- Eye Did Nothing Wrong

12/15/2009 5:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

No complaints, no foul -- that's what Toby Keith's peeps are saying about his eye-stretching performance at a Nobel Peace Prize after party earlier this week.

Toby Keith

The insensitive gesture occurred during Will Smith's rendition of "Rapper's Delight," when Toby slanted his eyes as Will rapped the word "yellow" -- but according to Toby's rep, "No one at the concert thought Toby was out of line."

Toby's rep also said, "Everyone was impressed with his rapping skills and that's it ... all of the artists liked each other, hung out, and it was a very friendly, genuine, and supportive atmosphere."

We're guessing the woman who sued Miley Cyrus for $4 billion over the same gesture would disagree.

Wow talk about double standards people....jump all over Miley (who technically is a kid) but good ol' boy Keith (who is technically an adult...I think)...meh no problem. Pretty pretty sad. And since when is putting down another race a way to be proud about yours...someone forget their intelligence pill this morning?

Did I miss something? Why is this a story. Let me guess because he pointed to himself as being yellow. Well.....isn't he? This is a stretch even for TMZ. I guess they didn't have enough Tiger Woods stories.

Wasn't a big deal when Miley did it. Isn't here, either. But hey, TMZ, keep twisting those poll questions and re-running it until you get the desired result.

Response to "dude":
Regarding Keith, OK, Oklahoma and Nashville then. And we'll let Texas off the hook for a few days in honor of your public assertion that Texas is innocent of being Keithified. However, Texas must still explain the Bush family (start by looking into how they got all their money through WW2 Japanese gold, and how the elder Bush supplied Hitler with technological supplies). Hey, I'm more than aware that Austin is a fantastic place!

Why does everyone still think is okay to make fun of Asians? Imagine if Toby made an unflattering gesture when Will Smith mentioned black or white people in his rap? All hell would break lose. But because Toby made fun of Asians, somehow it is okay. Asians still have this stereotype that they are meek little people that just politely turn the other check, when in actuality, they are seriously getting tired of this racist crap!
