Actress Apologizes for 'Blackface' Costume and Now People Are Offended That Other's Were Offended

Actress Lili Reinhart tweeted the below photo of a Halloween costume that she was interested in rocking for the upcoming holiday and quickly removed it after receiving some negative feedback. 

She apologized for posting the 'blackface' costume which prompted the discussion on whether or not this was even blackface. 

As Twitter user 'Audny' points out, it's really more offensive that people thought the demon costume was a representation of a black person.

We're putting this one in the 'Massive Overreaction' column.

Kansas State Student Sends a Blackface Snapchat and Instantaneously Feels the Wrath of the Internet

Blackface and using the n-word is something that's doesn't fly anywhere. Get it together, white people.

A Kansas State University student was put on blast after KSU student Desmund Weathers posted a screenshot of a snapchat a former sorority girl had shared. In the photo you can see a blackfaced Paige Shoemaker throwing up the Westside W with a caption that took everything over the edge.

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.

For your Sketchy reading amusement, a classic article by David Sedaris explaining what the heck is going on in this picture (HINT: It's a bit racist, and a European).
