A Gay Canadian Couple Upped The Racist Halloween Costume Game And Twitter Has Some Opinions
It’s Halloween so we know to expect some racist and offensive Halloween costumes. It is a yearly tradition at this point. Not only do we expect these costumes, but there is also the inevitable response defending the costumes and calling everyone else sensitive. That’s what happened when one gay Canadian couple posted what might be the most offensive couples costume of the year considering the inhumane condition on the southern border and increasing number of dead migrant children. Here’s a quick recap of Manuel Navarro’s (manverywell) and Marty Fortier’s (marty.fortier) tasteless costume making fun of the immigration crisis currently claiming lives in the U.S.
Marty Fortier and Manuel Navarro thought their ICE/Migrant couples costume was just a normal costume.
The white-Mexican couple, based in Toronto, seemed to consider it funny to create sexy costumes depicting a humanitarian crisis that has claimed several lives in recent years. According to NBC, 24 people have died while in ICE custody. That does not include other deaths in other federal agencies, including 5 children.
Here’s what the couple looks like out of their sexy ICE Agent/Desperate Migrant costumes.
Migrants coming to the U.S. border have faced increased scrutiny and mistreatment by federal immigration authorities. At one point, the Trump administration implemented a “zero-tolerance” policy that separated thousands of families. Some of the families will never be reunited as some children went unaccounted for into the foster care and adoption systems.
