US credit union Idaho Apologises After Using Blackface Jamaican Bobsled Costume On Halloween

[Sharingbuttons]An Idaho credit union has issued an apology after posting photos of several employees of its Post Falls branch dressed in blackface for a Halloween costume depicting the Jamaican bobsled team, drawing criticism on social media. “Really P1FCU you REALLY thought this was an appropriate costume for your employees to dress as, LET ALONE POST IT TO FB only to delete it after someone spoke up about how wrong that is,” wrote Savanna Hurst in a Facebook post that has been shared more than 200 times on Wednesday afternoon.

[Sharingbuttons]Tyrese looks like he’s having a mental breakdown and his friends are worried sick, but the actor tells TMZ his behavior is that of a desperate father who has been bled dry by an angry ex-wife.

He vehemently denies physically abusing 10-year-old Shayla and strongly believes Norma Gibson is motivated by spite and is making up claims to drive a wedge between father and daughter. Tyrese also says he’s going broke defending himself in court, paying huge legal bills. He says that’s why he’s so angry at The Rock, who’s doing a spinoff of ‘Fast & Furious’ that is delaying the 9th installment of the franchise by a year. …
