Country superstar Jason Aldean is getting slammed after he dressed up in blackface on Halloween to portray rapper Lil Wayne.

Confirmed: Nincompoop @Jason_Aldean wore blackface on Halloween.

That's him in the white shirt.

The 38-year-old singer's costume was first reported by a country music blog called Nashville Gab last week.

The blog's author, Shannon Davis, identified the other people in the picture as Aldean's wife, Brittany Kerr, and a few of their friends.

"I was kind of hoping that Jason’s darkened face was just the lighting, but I don’t think we could be that lucky," she wrote.

Davis told BuzzFeed News she received the photo from an anonymous tipster who emailed it through a website contact form.

A rep for Aldean confirmed to BuzzFeed News that the costume was legit.

"Jason dressed as rapper Lil Wayne for Halloween," Tyne Parrish said.

Some people were pretty pissed about Aldean's choice of costume.

So despite all the warnings, he still felt blackface was acceptable.... Smh

A professional bro dressed up for Halloween. What happened next won't shock you at all.

Aldean hasn't posted about the costume on his personal social media accounts. The singer just wrapped up a year-long tour in August.
