Blackface costumes for Halloween are popular this year, despite its controversial history and the fact that it is widely considered offensive.
Did people just get bolder?
Weeks ago, a man wearing a Samuel L. Jackson inspired blackface costume was called out in a London train. And just before that, in Iowa, a clueless first-grade teacher at Walcott Elementary, Megan Luloff, was photographed at a Halloween party wearing blackface.
Following the backlash she received, she claimed her costume was inspired by Lafawnduh, a character from the 2004 movie Napoleon Dynamite.
Another culprit does the most
Luloff’s attorney defended her saying the teacher had no idea what blackface represented in America’s history. She insisted that her intentions were pure.
Despite the loud outrage against people who insist on using blackface during Halloween, another culprit, a mom from Scotland, is slamming her accusers and telling them to get a grip.
Claire Flynn, 26, shared a photo of her 3-year-old daughter Sienna in full blackface and body paint on Facebook. Her disturbing costume, the Lookie lookie man, she claimed, was "inspired by beach traders in foreign resorts."
Is the PC police overreacting?
People were quick to call her out on her questionable parenting choice, but Claire is insisting that she will not be deleting her post or apologizing to the political correctness police. And her supporters are cheering her on.
It’s a joke. Get over it. https://t.co/Fi6Q20GFPo— David Vance (@DVATW) November 2, 2018
In fact, she has given herself a pat on the back for creativity and some people think she did a pretty good job. Tone-deaf much?
