Ohio loser goes blackface, dresses as Tiger Woods, marches in pets costume parade

It's 2018, and Megyn Kelly is confused why wearing blackface isn't OK. Meanwhile, some guy in Ohio ruined a perfectly good Halloween parade for dogs and their owners by wearing blackface as part of his Tiger Woods costume.

LakewoodAlive, the area nonprofit which put on the Spooky Pooch Parade in Lakewood, just outside of Cleveland, took to Facebook to apologize for letting the man march in the parade in the costume which included Woods' trademark red Nike golf shirt and black pants, a dog stroller with a miniature artificial green outfitted on it, as well an Instagram-inspired frame the man held around his head saying "Breaking News - Tiger's Back!"



For the uninitiated, wearing blackface -- or dressing up one's face and appearance to present an anachronistic stereotype of another race or ethnicity -- is highly offensive. It's not OK in 2018.

The offending man has not been identified, but LakewoodAlive posted an apology on their Facebook page:

"LakewoodAlive is a non-profit community development organization whose mission is to foster and sustain vibrant neighborhoods. At the heart of Lakewood’s vibrancy is inclusiveness and diversity.


"An individual marched in Saturday’s Spooky Pooch Parade with his family in a costume that is not consistent with our values as an inclusive organization and community. We apologize for not addressing the issue on the spot.

"Effective immediately, at all LakewoodAlive events, LakewoodAlive shall reserve the right to refuse individuals the ability to participate in events – either as participants or vendors – as LakewoodAlive board and staff may deem. We will attempt to exercise good judgment moving forward ensuring that we celebrate our inclusive community.”
