Some members of the French Police are currently under investigation after photos surfaced of officers wearing full blackface while throwing a "negro party".
The pictures were turned into authorities early last week when Claudy Siar, the former Interministerial Delegate for Equal Opportunities for overseas French, was alerted to the racist photos by a friend who noticed them on their Facebook page.
Claudy detailed first learning about the pictures to the French press, saying:
"Someone I know told me of the existence of these photos on the Facebook account of one of her friends. In my presence, she called this friend and told them she was shocked. The friend was taken by surprise and tried to play down what had happened, saying that they were just having fun with friends in private and that it was a 'negro party'.
Wow. It's bad enough to think donning blackface is funny, but to not even understand that it's offensive is just insane!
The photos were deleted shortly after being posted, but not after the damage had already been done.
This could become really big -- and it sounds horrifying.
KeKe Palmer is accusing performer Trey Songz of 'sexual intimidation,' among other things, after she randomly appeared in his newly released music video for Pick Up The Phone that was released on YouTube on Friday.
From what we can gather reading Palmer's passionate Instagram message that contained the accusation, it appears she did NOT give Songz consent for her to appear in the video -- but the Scream Queens star takes it even further than that.
It is scary and potentially triggering to read, but here is her full, emotionally-charged IG message about what led up to her non-consensual appearance in the video and the hints about how she was forced into it (below):
