We are just dumbfounded over this whole Nick Cannon whiteface photo. Honestly, haven’t we had enough examples yet why it STILL isn’t cool to do blackface or whiteface, even if you’re a famous celebrity?
Anyone remember former Dancing With the Stars pro Juliane Hough and the outraged reaction to her Orange is the New Black costume for Halloween? When she dressed up like Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren and actually went so far as to darken her skin and go blackface for it?
The overwhelming celebrity Halloween costume theme this year seems to be dressing up like other celebrities. In particular, it seems like everyone wanted to work their own version of Miley Cyrus’ now infamous MTV Video Music Awards ‘twerking’ outfit. If there is anything we really wanted to see less than Kelly Ripa dressed as Miley Cyrus, though, it was Miley Cyrus dressed as Lil Kim.
The worst dressed vote for celebrity Halloween costumers this year, however, goes to Matt Lauer made up as Pamela Anderson from Baywatch. We will never be able to unsee that image. Seriously, we are feeling the need for some eyeball bleach after seeing Matt Lauer with boobs.
