0829_Joseph-Hyungmin-Son-mugshot
The guy who played "Random Task" in "Austin Powers" -- the guy who throws a shoe -- has been convicted of torturing a 20-year-old woman back in 1990.

Joseph Hyungmin Son
was arrested in 2008 on suspicion of participating in a gang rape of a woman on Christmas Eve ... when DNA linked him to the crime.

According to prosecutors, Son and another man abducted the woman, dragged her into the back of a car, pistol whipped her and threatened to shoot her.

The victim claimed Son and the other man repeatedly raped her, and sexually penetrated her with a gun before releasing her in Compton naked.

Son is due back in court on September 19 for sentencing -- and faces a maximum of 15 years to life in prison.

So we finally have an answer to the age old question, "Who throws a shoe?"

Apparently, rapists throw shoes.

What he did was heinous, but that doesn't give people the right to be racist and ignorant themselves, does it. Did you see his last name? He is Korean. So what is with the eggroll jokes? Eggrolls are Chinese food.

Just because someone is a disgusting rapist doesn't give you a free pass to be an ignorant racist. At least make a Kimchee joke. Idiots.
