This Woman's 'Aunt Jemima' Blackface Costume Is Horrifying Twitter

Blackface is literally never a good idea.

But, time and again, during Halloween, there will always be someone who thinks it's a good idea to parade themselves around in blackface as part of their costume to celebrate the holiday.

Because this is 2017 and everything eventually ends up on the internet, it's probably best to just leave blackface costumes alone. Apparently this one woman didn't get the memo, however, and thought it'd be funny to flaunt her blackface Aunt Jemima costume.

What's worse is that a bunch of people responded positively to the costume that was uploaded by the woman's friend.

People were shocked at how open she was about sharing the photos, and the fact that her friend thought this was a perfectly acceptable Halloween costume.

And then a flood of "white people" jokes started coming in.

Mostly though, people were just dumbfounded by her friend's lack of foresight in posting the pics online.

Once people started messaging the woman who posted photos of her friend's blackface costume, she became defensive and apparently took them down.

But screenshots last forever, and when it comes to things that are deemed offensive and culturally insensitive, you can believe people aren't going to let this go.

What did you think of the costume?
