October 31, 2015 is still four days away, but Americans have already started donning blackface to celebrate the occasion. This morning, an apparent student from Florida posted photos of herself dressed up as “Nicki Minaj” on Twitter.
After her tweet was picked up by other users—
RIP UR MENTIONS MA 😂😂😂😂 SHITS BOUT TO GET VAPORIZED https://t.co/FHeV1DsJvk— The Kid Mero (@THEKIDMERO) October 27, 2015
—she made her account private and then deleted it altogether. Such is the Internet life cycle of the racist Halloween costume-wearer.
The screenshots live on, however—and if the number of photos of racist or otherwise offensive costumes we collected last year is any indication, Blackface Nicki Minaj girl won’t be the last person to make an ass of herself this holiday season.
