High School Student Wears Blackface For Nicki Minaj Halloween Costume (PHOTO)
A high school student has come under fire for wearing blackface for her Nicki Minaj halloween costume. The student from Florida, who has only been identified as Emma, posted pictures of herself in blackface and dressed up as Minaj on Twitter. See the controversial photo below.
On Monday night, Emma tweeted a picture of the offensive costume she wore to her school’s homecoming, and within minutes ,the photo was met with tremendous backlash, including threats to report her to the school district’s superintendent.
Before deleting the tweet and her Twitter account all together, the Florida teen apologized. She wrote, “I sincerely apologize for my actions. I did not mean to offend anyone with my homecoming costume.”
The student’s offensive costume comes just one day after a fifth grade teacher from Alabama was slammed for wearing blackface for a Kanye West costume. As Gossip Cop reported on Monday, Shannon Morrow posted a picture of her husband Heath on Facebook, wearing blackface while she dressed up as Kim Kardashian. Morrow captioned the now deleted picture, “Haha some people thought Heath was really a black man.”
