It should be perfectly clear in 2017 that blackface in any way, shape, form, or fashion is intolerable.
Still, soccer star Antoine Griezmann thought it would be a good idea to cover himself in brown makeup to dress up as an NBA player for an 80s-themed party.
The photo hasn’t been up for very long — just 25 minutes as of this writing — but we imagine he’ll end up issuing some sort of apology for his ignorance.
Or maybe he won’t. Who knows.
Feel free to join in on the backlash and let Antoine know how unacceptable this is.
Update: He apologized.
Je reconnais que c’est maladroit de ma part. Si j’ai blessé certaines personnes je m’en excuse.
