You can always count on some idiots to ruin Halloween with disrespectful costumes–and this year was no different.
After Nicki Minaj saw a photo of a man in a Bill Cosby costume molesting his drag-wearing partner, she quickly spoke out about the distasteful pic on Instagram. “Our generation is so desensitized,” Minaj captioned her post.
Nicki clearly didn’t find anything funny about this costume–and used her voice to make fans aware of the world they live in.
How can anyone with a conscious or heart find something like this amusing? Over 50 women are accusing Cosby of sexually assaulting them. Nothing about this is a laughing matter. It’s extremely scary that our generation is so numb to other people’s pain and sorrow.
Perhaps it has something to do with social media, a playground for people who lash out at others for no reason without remorse. Maybe it has to do with Bill’s legacy of being “America’s dad.” Obviously it’s hard for people to believe that someone they looked up to for decades is actually a monster in disguise.
Whatever the case is, our generation needs to wake up and regain our sensitivity.
