It’s fun dressing up as your favorite celebs for Halloween — when the costume isn’t racist!
Chestnut Grove Elementary School teacher Heath Morrow apparently thought it would be appropriate to dress in blackface to complete his Yeezy costume!
Shannon Morrow, who posed as Kim in the photo, shared the controversial image on her Facebook. She even commented, oblivious to the offense, saying:
“Haha some people thought Heath was really a black man.”
The snap featured her husband in blackface and the plastic louvered sunglasses popularized by the rapper. He was holding a sign that read “Kanye For Prez 2020,” referencing the 38-year-old’s presidential announcement at the 2015 VMAs.
On Sunday, the controversial photo blew up online and has — as you may expect — sparked a ton of media outrage.
Many are even calling for the fifth grade teacher to lose his position over the offense.
According to local reports, Morrow has apologized, and the district is investigating the situation — but no word yet on his employment status with the school.
Do YOU think the teacher should be fired after this controversy?
