Blackface Beyonce Costume Costs Nurse Her Job

A nurse at St. Luke’s Hospital lost her job because of a Halloween costume. She shared uploaded a photo of her and another person dressed as The Carters. Actually, the fashion had nothing to do with the actual artists. The pair put most of their efforts into painting their faces black.

Shelbi Heenan, the nurse in question, was dismissed from her job after the hospital’s management caught wind of the social media post which they addressed by lunchtime.

Here is the hospital’s official statement.

“On Monday afternoon, Saint Luke’s Health System became aware of a Saint Luke’s East Hospital employee who posted photos on personal social media accounts of her and another individual dressed in blackface for what appears to be a Halloween event. This information was shared with appropriate health system personnel and an investigation was initiated immediately. While it is against Saint Luke’s policy to comment on specific personnel matters, we can confirm that this individual is no longer a Saint Luke’s employee. Saint Luke’s is deeply committed to our culture of diversity and inclusion. It is fundamental to who we are as an organization and we vigorously protect it on behalf of all our patients and employees and expect those who represent us to do the same.”

As demonstrated in the photo above, blackface isn’t required to achieve Beyonce’s look. A natural tan would do. Ashy-Kathy messed up with this one. Peep the mess here.
