If you argued that Jason Aldean gave zero f*cks about disrespecting Black people or their culture, you would be right. The guy, who we hear is a country singer or something, was outed doing the offensive blackface thing for Halloween, apparently dressed as Lil Wayne.
The singer’s rep has already confirmed that it is Aldean shown in the low resolution images circulating the Internet, but Aldean has been mute on the scandal. That hasn’t stopped folks on Twitter for coming after Mister Country Music.
.@Jason_Aldean Can I do a sit-down interview w/ you where I ask you lots of questions about what its like to be a piece of shit racist?

Has Jason Aldean been completely oblivious to the reactions of donning blackface? You can dress up like Lil Wayne without painting yourself.

It is confirmed that Jason Aldean wore blackface on Halloween as apart of his Lil Wayne costume. What the literal fuck..

Basically. Annually, some celebrity tool does this so it really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Still, you hope one day folks figure out how ridiculous and offensive blackface is.
5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs
If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.
1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.
In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary.
2. He’s funny.
Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.
3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.
In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.
4. He’s a rapper.
His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle.
5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.
The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
