Never can I recall people reacting in such a way to where a person can no longer wear a presidential mask for fun. This 'political correctness' or
whatever crap it is called is getting really annoying.
Or is this just an Obama-thang.
Obama costume leads Kentucky company to order
Note to Halloween celebrants: Don’t wear the Obama costume. Doing so at work could lead the human resources department to mandate all
employees take part in diversity training — which is what happened at a Kentucky medical center this week.
Jennie Stuart Medical Center’s human resources sent out a letter to all 750 staff members apologizing for a man who made an appearance at the yearly
office Halloween costume party wearing a mask of President Obama and a strait jacket, The Blaze reported. The man — flanked by two costumed security
officers — also performed a skit at the party, calling “VIP Special Delivery.”
He won third place in the office costume contest, the local WZTV station reported. But company officials weren’t impressed after seeing a photograph
of the man and his two friends in costume.
"The vice president of the company’s human resources department first apologized, then asked workers to stay away from any costume with political,
religious, ethnic or gender-based overtones, the local WZTV station reported."
Now this is the 2nd time a person has caught heat for wearing a mask of Obama
Rodeo clown draws criticism for Obama mask
Maybe the companies that make Obama masks need to be fined for making them, tempting consumers to wear them and make fun of the president.
Oh wait, this has been going on for years and years, long before we even heard of Obama.
So why is this any different?
People need to grow up and quite taking every thing sooo seriously.
It's for fun people, loosen up!! You know, for laughs.
What do you think Saturday Night Live does??
It makes fun of people for ratings
Sheesh, what has made people so touchy feely any more?
Guarantee you if that had been a Bush mask, that whole office would still be laughing and never thought twice about an apology!!!
