GamingThread Twitch Punishes White Apex Legends Cosplayer Who Painted Her Face Black (read Staff Post before posting)
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Dismissing concerns relating to blackface
I would people from ERA see this video, at least just the minute from 3:00 to around 4:00 This is the Blacks and Whites' Carnival from my country, Colombia. It is held every year, it is akin to the Rio Carnival, where people compete to have the best carnival floats, no so much about the dancing as in Rio tho. And it is very common for white people to paint themselves black, and black people to paint themselves white, and for people not just participating in the caravans, but in the public since it is a very festivity. So just as much as you are all asking for "common sense" and for people going to google for advice on not to paint themselves, and such, please just keep in mind, that the black face is not an issue, or prevalent on several other countries, just as many other posters have said about other countries. So please do not forget to take into account where this girl was from, and with what intention she did it. I do not blame Twitch since they are an American company and have all the rights to not want this type of content/situations on their platform, however please do not blame the person for having made the mistake to display herself on an American platform with no malice.
