Initially, he wrote that “for everyone giving me grief, I don’t really understand why this is racist or cultural appropriation.. it’s Halloween! Just having fun! :)”
However, the Instagarm hordes weren’t satisfied with his statement, and their unremitting gush of negative commentary led Kenworthy to delete the photo and officially apologize:
“Didn’t realize I was being offensive & didn’t mean to marginalize or appropriate Native American culture. Sorry! Pic deleted.”
Here’s a photograph of his costume. Do you find it offensive, or are people being oversensitive?
Here’s a much less questionable costume. We like this one better.
Halloween costume party at @theeveryhostess & @wowjeremym’s house tonight! *Insert applicable Mean Girls quote here: “Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it. The hardcore girls just wear lingerie and some form of animal ears… I’m a mouse. Duh!” ???
