Halloween is only a few days away! Of course this means pumpkin-carving, candy overloads, scary movies and, unfortunately, a handful of racist Halloween costumes.
Just the other day, we came across an eyeful of “blackface” when a couple of guys thought dressing up as Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman would be a good idea.
The public exploded with angry comments towards these guys who made light of a very serious issue. Unfortunately, it is clear that there are many more individuals who see no problem with trivializing serious matters.
Nope, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. These guys actually thought it would be a good idea to dress up as Asiana Airlines flight attendants after crashing the plane.
The costumes reference the crash of Asiana Airlines flight 214 at the San Francisco International Airport. The crash killed two people, injured more than 180 others and left several in critical condition.
The crash itself was pulled into racial controversy when KTVU gave inappropriate nicknames to the pilots on Asiana Flight 214.
Again, the public exploded with angry reactions and yet people do not seem to care. The men with the pilot costumes made sure to include the racist names in their attire.
How people can make halloween costumes out of a tragedy is beyond me. In case these guys didn’t irritate you enough, don’t forget to check out Angry Asian Man‘s list of racist costumes.
