Gabrielle Union’s Racist Twitter Trolls Are Coming For Al Roker For His ‘Whiteface’ Halloween Costume

The "Today" show host clapped back at the criticism.

Published November 1st

There's a new racially based argument coming out of NBC's Today show.

This time, Al Roker is in the hot seat.

  1. In honor of 'Today' paying tribute to the '80s during its Halloween broadcast, Roker dressed up as Christopher Lloyd's classic 'Back to the Future' character, Dr. Emmet Brown, aka Doc Brown.

    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.

  2. Despite his tweets, some people were still left outraged by the veteran journalist's costume selection.

    Here's a rundown of people who felt offended by Roker dressing up as Doc. Brown.
