Here's your friendly reminder that you shouldn't wear blackface on Halloween (or ever.)

A 5th grade teacher at the Chestnut Grove Elementary School in Alabama apparently didn't get this memo. He dressed up as Kanye West, complete with "Kanye for Prez 2020" sign.

Heath Morrow's wife Shannon posted the photo on Facebook with the caption: "Haha some people thought Heath was really a black man."

She's probably not laughing now.

Although the original post has been deleted, nothing is gone forever once posted on the Internet.

Sadly, instances of blackface appear every year on Halloween. Most notably, actress Julianne Hough went in blackface as "Crazy Eyes" from Orange is The New Black in 2013.
