Is It Truly "Blackface" If You Smear Nutella All Over Your Face?
Either way, this clip from last night's "MTV Battle of the Exes" definitely comes across as 100% racist. I hope everyone involved is ashamed of themselves.
The context: Emily and her friend decided it would be funny to dress up as Paula and Ty, who were blatantly hooking up on the show. For what its worth, Emily offered to dress as Ty because she "knew him," and she did, well: they dated while both on "The Real World: D.C." You can watch the entire episode at MTV and decide if the context actually helps or hurts the situation for yourself.
