Americans are usually at their worst on Black Friday and Halloween. This year is no different as you can see above. If you're second guessing your move to Canada because you just had it with this shit, yes, that's a couple dressed up as Ray Rice and Janay Palmer. In blackface.
The couple's son posted it on Instagram—with the hashtags #hitabitch and #shewasknockedupnowsheknockedout—but eventually deleted the post because of the swift backlash on his comments.
Keith Olbermann, who's been critical about the situation and NFL culture in general, caught wind of the picture and justifiably put it on blast.
No; It's racist, mocks DV victims RT @RitterZac So this is Halloween.. like I'm pretty sure it's called dressing up. It's all a joke— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) October 26, 2014
I am cheered by this thought: those racist/sexist/pro-DV parents of his are coming back from their party + @RitterZac has to explain this.— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) October 26, 2014
Let's not pin the blame on Halloween here. Stupidity runs year round; Oct. 31 gives people an excuse to act on it.
