Gone are the days of witch costumes and pumpkins.
Last year, actress Julianne Hough came under fire for dressing up in Blackface in efforts to impersonate Orange is the New Black star, Uzo Aduba. In past years, party goers went as far as to dress as slain teen, Trayvon Martin and the man responsible for his death, George Zimmerman.
This year, adults and even kids have taken it to another level, hitting the streets as Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice and his wife, Janay Palmer. Rice was suspended indefinitely from the NFL in September after video surfaced of the football player viciously attacking his then fiancée.
On Sunday night during Chris Paul’s CP3 “Celebrity Sever” Dinner, HipHollywood caught up with former professional boxer Laila Ali to get her take on the controversial costumes.
“Nothing surprises me anymore unfortunately. It’s really sad that in our society now anything goes,”Ali explained. “People think things are funny and they put it all over social media and it’s really not.”
In one photo floating around the Internet, a man goes as Blackface and stands alongside a woman, dressed as Janay with a black eye. In another image, a child also in Blackface can be seen sporting a Ravens jersey while carrying a doll by her hair.
