There's a new racially based argument coming out of NBC's Today show.
This time, Al Roker is in the hot seat.
While his costume seemed innocent to some, others were outraged that he wore a costume inspired by a white character when Megyn Kelly's hour of Today was canceled over not understanding why blackface is offensive.
Roker quickly took to Twitter schooling the internet on how to rock a Halloween costume inspired by someone of another race without being offensive.
I’m going to say this one last time, but the folks who get it, understand and the ones who DON’T, won’t. I can be Doc Brown, and I wear the outfit and wig and not change my skin color if you’re white , you can be President Obama if you want. Just don’t color your skin!— Al Roker (@alroker) October 31, 2018
Here's a rundown of people who felt offended by Roker dressing up as Doc. Brown.
@alroker I get why you were upset about @megynkelly making her comment on “ blackface.. So I’m taken back that you of all people would dress up as a white character for Halloween. Isn’t that two sided not just for you as a person but for the network as well? As a Indian, I’m sad— Kat Bixby (@KayPortlance) October 31, 2018
@CNN Megyn Kelly says something about white and black dressing up on Halloween and she gets fired. Yet Hoda kotb and Al Roker dress up and impersonate white people and that's okay , oh I'm sorry I forgot only white people are racist.— Frenchy Dill (@ddfrenchy8) October 31, 2018
jeez @alroker and @DylanDreyerNBC both appropriated white male culture for Halloween. As we've been told several times, the clothing and hair styles are part of ones culture, regardless of if they paint faces. pic.twitter.com/BWLgDQhvUc— JackSCyber (@JackSCyber) October 31, 2018
Is it ok for Al Roker to dress up as a white man for Halloween? Given his outrage over Kelly's comments...seems awfully ironic. #crickets— J Butler (@jbutler70) October 31, 2018
My culture is NOT your f***ing Halloween costume @alroker ...— T E D D Y F I Ö R T È 🃏 (@TeddyFiorte) October 31, 2018
@alroker You go public crying foul about white people dressing up as black people and what do you do?? Dress up as a white man on Halloween on NBC TODAY SHOW.— joseph esser (@essermorse999) October 31, 2018
