Looks like Kate Gosselin has some explaining to do.

A photo of the former TLC star, in which she appears to mocking Asians, has been making the rounds on Twitter, sparking controversy and outrage on the social media site.

In the pic, the mother of eight appears to be wearing a Geisha-inspired headpiece while pulling the skin around her eyes to the side in a seemingly racist gesture.

The controversial photo appeared on a newly created Twitter page under the handle @katiedeen888kat. It's the only tweet from the account.

The image was tweeted to the managing editor of Radar Online, who was the first to report the image.

Kate has eight children with ex-husband Jon Gosselin, who is a second-generation Korean-American.
