WARNING: Photo shown has offensive language written and drawn on it.
Kat Von D is being accused of signing a photograph with a racist message towards her former boss, Ami James, and drew a swastika and a flaming Star of David on it. Apparently Ami (who is Jewish) went to TLC with the photo and was given the brush off so Ami had an attorney step in. A handwriting analyst found that "there is a 99% probability that Kat Von D" wrote the message. Ami claims that after his lawyer approached TLC with the analysis in July 2007, they sent a letter acknowledging receipt of the analysis and wrote:
"We trust that this information will be kept strictly confidential."However, a month later, Kat's spinoff show, "LA Ink," premiered.
TMZ reports that Ami said:
"What is more devastating to me, and much more shameful is when people ignore something like this for the sake of the money or self-interest. That is the real 'punch in the gut.'"TLC sent TMZ the following statement:
"A publicity photo was brought to the network's attention eight months ago that contained extraordinarily offensive language. A full investigation was immediately conducted to determine whether anyone associated with the network was involved. Kat vehemently denied authoring the text and after completing the investigation, it was determined that insufficient evidence existed to conclude that she had. Therefore, no disciplinary action was taken. The network always takes these matters seriously and follows what we believe to be an appropriate course of action as dictated by the circumstances and available information."Kat issued the following statement through her rep:
"The recent accusation of a publicity photo of me with offensive and anti-semitic and graphics allegedly written by me is completely false and unfounded, and clearly a forgery. This was already proven many months ago to be 100 percent untrue. I always have been, and will continue to be an advocate for tolerance of all races, religions and ways of life."
So who do we believe? If Kat really did send that photo with that message, she should be taken off the air and be forced to publicly apologize. I find the allegations difficult to believe because she wouldn't be that stupid, would she? I don't doubt that a network would be more concerned about the show and ratings though - money usually comes first in business. Whoever wrote the message is obviously a sick and hateful person that should be ashamed.
