High Schooler In Blackface Nicki Minaj Costume Causes An Uproar On Twitter
Twitter user @Emmajohns129 is a Florida high school student who decided to dress up as Nicki Minaj for homecoming, complete with black face makeup. She then tweeted a collage of photos of her and her friends, and the Internet is planning to never let her forget about it.
Not only did Emma receive a series of angry replies to the tweets, but offended parties also found out what high school she attends and what college she’s applying to. She has now deleted her Twitter account but several people have already emailed her high school and alerted the University of Florida, where she’s applying for school next fall.
The dean of Emma’s high school began emailing out a form letter reading, “Thank you for the information. Our administration is investigating this.”
Just in case the administration’s investigation isn’t enough, her superintendent is also being informed that the costume was worn to a school Homecoming event and no one said anything prior to the photos being tweeted.
Before @emmajohns129 deleted her account, she did tweet an apology for any offense the costume may have caused, which was screen capped by the people calling her out.
