So This Fool Decided That He Wants To Be Ray Rice For Halloween…
Well, it’s that time of year again. You know, the time of year when folks start competing to see who can come up with the most controversial and offensive costumes, also known as Halloween. This time, some guy with terrible judgement thought that it would be cool to use the NFL and domestic violence as his punchline…except no one is laughing.
Yesterday, an anonymous Reddit user shared a photo of his friend, who dressed up as Ray Rice with a black blow-up doll that is supposed to be Ray’s battered wife, Janay, for a Halloween party. In one shot, the man can even be seen dragging the doll by the foot.
“Ladies were falling for my friend’s Ray Rice costume,” the user captioned the photo.
The photo was posted on Reddit’s Too Soon forum, which is dedicated to insensitive humor. Commenters didn’t seem to have much of an issue with the costume, but it’s clearly wrong on so many levels. To know that a grown man finds comedy in a NFL player knocking the mother of his child unconscious is sickening.
The sad part of about it all, is knowing the monkey see, monkey do society in which we live, there will probably be several copycats before it’s all said and done.
