GamingThread Twitch Punishes White Apex Legends Cosplayer Who Painted Her Face Black (read Staff Post before posting)
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Inflammatory false equivalencies over multiple posts, ignoring staff post, excusing blackface
Yeah, because I'm American and educated in the horrific history of racism (and blackface) here, I understand why people should not do it. HOWEVER, I am VERY uncomfortable with someone being punished and bashed for simply trying to recreate in cosplay a character they love. The whole point of cosplay is to dress up like something you are not. Add onto that fact that this is young non-American person who had no knowledge of the history and I find it even more disturbing that people STILL want to pile on.
