It has to be an oversight to let a black kid wear a homemade water Mellon costume. Only when you see racism everywhere.
It has to be racism, no other explanation.


In what one would hope was just a terrible oversight, Fox & Friends this weekend aired a Halloween segment that featured children in various cute costumes -- including a black child dressed as a watermelon slice.



A homemade Halloween costume is RACIST. I guess watermelon is off the costume for black kids for ever.


While the clip is racking up attention online, it's only the latest in a string of uncomfortable situations for Fox News: On Saturday, the New York Times revealed that the network renewed now ex-host Bill O'Reilly's contract despite knowing that he'd recently issued a $32 million payout to a sexual harassment accuser.

People reacted using twitter and were reacting harshly-one said it was overt racism or tone deaf racism.


Online, viewers reacted harshly over the costume choice, with one person tweeting, "Overt racism, foolish racism, or tone deaf racism?' Take your pick, it's still racism."

Of course there's nothing offensive about this video but a few random Twitter users who get triggered seem to trigger other people for some reason.

Always being mad or outraged over the smallest and pettiest crap must get exhausting.

How is it racism if the boys parents made the suit for him?

Anyone that says a black kid can't be cute in a watermelon costume, anyone that sees that child and instantly makes it about their race, that person is the true racists.



Edit: Omg , the kid isn't even black. The stupidity of the human race on display here today.

It's sadder to think that you feel as though the few represent the many.

I found the entire video demeaning to the intelligence of humans everywhere. Certainly it doesn't need to be more offensive than that.

Sorry man, I don't think the few represent the many, I know the idiocy is widespread in liberalism

Given the history around the word watermelon and racist remarks it's hard to say it was innocent.
