In the age of social media, celebrities can always expect to be called out for doing something offensive. It might take more than a week, but it’ll happen eventually.
Country star Jason Aldean is learning that, as a photo showing him dressed in a questionable Halloween costume makes the rounds on the Internet. In it, Aldean wears a wig with dreadlocks, some fake bling, and, unfortunately, blackface makeup.
The Georgia native’s rep confirmed to Yahoo that he “dressed as rapper Lil Wayne for Halloween” but declined to comment further.
The offensive costume worn by the Academy of Country Music’s reigning Male Vocalist of the Year shows that, even in 2015, some people still have not received the message that blackface is not OK.
Mediaoutrage– SMH. They know, they just don’t care.
