Another year, another white person making their Halloween costume needlessly racist. It's really not that complicated, white people can totally dress as black celebrities if they want, they just shouldn't wear blackface.
You can dress in a Beyonce outfit go the whole nine yards without painting your face black and turning it into a minstrel show. But sadly, this year Missouri-based nurse and her husband took the low road with blackface imitations of Beyonce and Jay Z.
When Shelbi Elliot-Heenan and her husband Jasmond Heena decided to dress as Beyonce and Jay Z this year, they truly made the least effort while creating the maximum offensive effect.
Neither of them put together outfits that look remotely like anything Jay Z and Beyonce have worn, and they both went out in complete blackface, with Jasmond taking the minstrel show reference a step further with pink painted lips.
