Utah Jazz Retweet (and Delete) Picture of Fan in Blackface Dressed as Karl Malone

| On 29, Oct 2013

The Utah Jazz retweeted a fan photo Sunday night of a fan dressed up as Karl Malone and wearing blackface.

The photo above via SB Nation, shows two fans dressing up as the legendary John Stockton and Karl Malone for Halloween. The fans recreated an old photo of the pair, with the person representing Karl Malone in blackface.

The Jazz Tweeted that “We apologize for the last retweet/tweet moments ago, we have taken it down as it may be insensitive.”

May be insensitive? Utah Jazz, please watch the video above of Wendy Williams addressing actress Julianne Hough’s use of blackface over the weekend to portray a character from Orange Is the New Black for a Hollywood Halloween party.

And to the man identified as Tyler Christensen (@tcritty25) on his Twitter bio who Tweeted the original picture and continues to defend it (screenshot below), we hope you watch the video too.
