Controversial mother of eight Kate Gosselin has pulled a Paula Deen and is now facing public criticism for a racist photo posted online.

Granted, Gosselin hasn’t been a model mom for quite a while, but the newly released photo spells further trouble for the spiraling former reality TV star.

In the photo, Gosselin is wearing a Geisha-inspired hat while pulling at her eyes to look as though she is Asian. The photo surfaced from a seemingly anonymous Twitter account created for the purpose of tweeting the photo to the managing editor of Radar Online, which published the photo Monday.

To add onto the indecency of the photo, Gosselin mothered eight half-Korean children with her ex-husband Jon Gosselin, who is a second-generation Korean-American.

Neither Gosselin nor her representatives have commented on the photo.

Here's the tweet from @katiedeen888kat:

@Kateplusmy8 Makes fun of Asians with 8 half Korean children. @IMPerel @EmeraldCityJazz @Allisstair @SchmekyGirl
