Was LaVar Arrington’s Halloween costume RACIST?
Today, former NFL superstar LaVar Arrington dressed up for Halloween the best way he could, by putting on a costume of J.J. Watt. Watt is the best defensive player in the NFL and I feel that LaVar was just trying to show support for Watt, but the fans were outraged claiming a double standard.
.@LaVarArrington is on .@NFL_AM in “Whiteface” oh how I wonder what would happen if someone was in “Blackface” #DoubleStandards #NFL

So to be clear, white people cannot go blackface but @LaVarArrington can go white face on national TV?

@LaVarArrington that’s white face. No no one is offended, but it is a double-standard. If a white person does black face, hell breaks loose.

People are very soft now a days, but what do you think? Were people just on their edge, or is it a double standard?
