The trolls and racist ghouls are on a roll this Halloween season.
According to OC Weekly, the offender was identified as Media Blitz singer Jason Schwartz. OC Weekly tracked down Schwartz on Facebook after a tipster brought the above photo to their attention. And even though he had no issues dressing up as the slain teenager and posting the picture on Facebook, he later erased it from his profile.
He did, however, give this statement to OC:
I have never felt worse in my life. It was never my intention to hurt people’s feelings. I have always had a morbid sense of humor and I think that it is from trying to cope with the horrors of the world. I am Jewish and even have made light of something as dark as the Holocaust in order to come to an understanding of it. I have never intentionally done anything to hurt people’s feelings and I am not going to start now. I have black cousins and friends. They mean the world to me. I am not a person of hate. I don’t mean to hurt anyone and I hope people can forgive me.
We wish we could say that’s the end of the blackface obsession in Orange County, but unfortunately, this other guy is ruining our dreams:
But blackface never is. So for the 100th time this week…just stop.
