A Louisiana politician has doubled down on his decision to wear blackface when he dressed up as Tiger Woods for a party. Robbie Gatti defended his actions by claiming that he was just having a “good night at church,” according to New York Daily News.
Gatti is up for a state legislature seat in a special election in March. However, the photo, which was taken several years ago, was discovered and published by Louisiana local politics site The Hayride.
Although Gatti confirmed his identity in the photo, he did not offer an apology to anyone offended.
