This Celebrity Dressed As Kim Jong-Un For Halloween And People Weren't Happy

"It wasn't funny in Little Britain and it isn't funny now."

Posted on

One of the best parts about Halloween is seeing what celebrities will dress up as. While many chose witches, zombies, and other celebrities, British comedian David Walliams decided to dress up as North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

David was attending Jonathan Ross's Halloween party, and posted multiple pictures from the evening.

Thank you for being the perfect host @wossy

@davidwalliams Brilliant- you went as racism.

And this is why I'm never buying any of his books. David Walliams was and still is a racist.

Matt Lucas: 'Now I think it's lazy for white people to get a laugh just by playing black characters' David Walliams:

While a lot of people weren't impressed with the choice of costume, some defended David.

@davidwalliams This is funny and 100% NOT racist. I don't see any racial hatred here - just humour. And a bloody good costume.

@graydwoods @tartyblanche @davidwalliams You realise dressing up as somebody doesn’t automatically make you racist, right?

While David has yet to respond to the controversy, he appeared on BBC Radio 1 this morning.
