I’m not a politically correct sort of person by any stretch of the imagination, but even I know this isn’t a very good look for a celebrity … or anybody for that matter.
When the picture above first fell in my lap and I was told it was a picture of Jason Aldean, his wife, and a couple friends dressed up for Halloween, I didn’t think much of it because I automatically thought the hunter was Jason.
But then I took another look (and another and another) and then a few more so I could compare regular pictures of Jason to this blackface (brownface?) sporting Jason. That’s when I came to the realization that, no, Jason isn’t actually the hunter.
I was kind of hoping that Jason’s darkened face was just the lighting, but I don’t think we could be that lucky.
Seriously, I try really hard to keep it light and airy about Jason because people have this impression that I don’t like him, which isn’t true at all. But come on, this sort of crap just makes my job wayyyyy too easy.
Update: Jason’s rep has now confirmed that this is Jason and that he’s dressed as Lil Wayne.
