Steve McNair Halloween Costume

Good Lord Is This Ever An Offensive Halloween Costume

11/5/09 in NFL   |   100%InjuryRate   |   1283 respect

Deadspin managed to get their hands on this picture of a, uh, ridiculously offensive Halloween costume. Not sure what's worse, the blackface or the bullet hole. Or everything.

What makes this so sad is that "GOD" forbid if his sister or Mother or Aunt was physically assaulted and someone acted it out in a school play or played the event or re-enactment on you tube this guy would have a fit.
You see I am truly trying to be a better person,a non responsive person however I find people that make light of the true misfortune of others to be the kind of people that deserve to get their asses kicked unmercifully and then have everyone else stand in line waiting their turn to beat the holy hell out of them as well.  What a real asshole this guy is to do something like this.   This has to be one of the most insensitive,racist,juvenile,callas,ridiculous,meanspirited,cold hearted,despicable,morbid,dick less,shameful,awful,wicked,dimwitted acts of an individual who is desperately seeking either attention or a beating, he obviously has a twisted sense of humanity, and he obviously has some deep seeded social issues,each time i look at this it angers me more and more.

 I really don't care about it, all the ignorant ass stuff in the world a costume of a football player who died isn't going to make me trip.  If it were a dead Marine costume, dead priest, hell even a dead baby then that's when I'm offended  It's okay to dress up as Vampires, Jason, murderers like Manson, etc but a guy dresses up as a dead player that's horrible.  The only player I can think of football wise I see untouchable is Pat Tillman.

how is this anything like dressing up as "vampires, Jason" pherhaps the manson argument has some merit but are you not aware that vampires and jason are in fact fictional? there aren't actually vampires going around sucking people's blood and jason has never been more than an actor; where as in this case, it's dressing up as a REAL dead football player. dressing up as Manson (i've never seen this) although kinda messed up is still just dressing up as a scary psychotic guy, not like dressing up as a victim of an internment camp and why is dressing up as a dead priest offensive? it doesn't focus on one person, it's just like being a zombie with the 'backstory' of a priest and is it even possible to dress up as a dead baby? if so please elaborate on how to do so
and again in your next comment the gay, race and sex jokes may have some merit to them but injury? how is laughing at some guy breaking his leg or something in a stupid way offensive? and michael jackson? did you write this while watching this is it?

 Oh yeah I'm sure there's people who have laughed at gay jokes, injury jokes, Michael Jackson jokes, offensive race or sex jokes.  So lets not cast stones in a glass house yaddamean.

He should have gone all the way and added a pimp hat and a couple of girls dressed like the women he was cheating with.

11/6/09   |   joncool65   |   7 respect

and he has no idea how offensive he's being, with his big goofy smile.

11/6/09   |   joentessmendiola   |   21 respect

I can't believe he had the nerve to dress like this! What in the heck was he thinking? NOT FUNNY AT ALL!

11/6/09   |   BigRedneckSwede   |   25 respect

Wow!! How low can you go?

11/6/09   |   SportzStar   |   102 respect

I'm glad to see that some of you are bringing yourselves down just as low and he is by making assumptions like he's from Jersey and he drives his parents' car. Way to go, you showed him.

11/6/09   |   Heyhey1970   |   194 respect

I think I'm most offended by the realization that this dope drives mommy and daddy's car around town like he made the money.  Rich brat alert.

I wonder how many costumes this Douche went through before he thought,

"Yeah, this is topical and will be sweet"

11/5/09   |   rockhound87   |   33 respect

I really don't see the big deal, yes it may be in bad taste.  But the fact remains that we all are still able to choose how we express ourselves.  There are bigger things to worry about than how some kid decides to dress for Halloween.

I have a big, broad gray line and he still crossed it! 

11/5/09   |   brucek863   |   50 respect

The costume makes me sick but the stupid grin on his face makes me even sicker. How could anyone even think that's clever.

why even gratify this little douche with an article, someone at the party should've broken those teeth and gave him a real head injury to smile about rather than take a picture and send it around online

11/5/09   |   JKB37   |   2409 respect

Absolutely repulsive..  Some might say it's still too soon..  I say never would be a good time for this one..

A bloody Ray Lews jersey and a toy knife would be ok. This is just a flat out disgrace.
