Costume parties are great. Not only do they have all the fun of a regular party, but getting the chance to wear a costume only adds to the overal party atmosphere. But at every costume party in places all over the world, there’s always that one person who takes things a little too far.
Seriously, the number of stories involving people wearing offensive costumes seems to be growing every single year – and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change.
You’d think that by now, people would have a good idea of the type of costumes to stay away from to avoid negative attention, but some people clearly still haven’t gotten the memo.
French soccer player, Antoine Griezmann, has become the latest person to make a fool of himself all in the name of a costume.
The Atletico Madrid and France forward recently tweeted an image of himself dressed as a Harlem Globetrotter for an 80s themed costume party. But here’s the kicker: not only did he paint his face black, this fool painted his entire body black.
The image instantly sparked controversy because, well, black face is offensive.
