A mother’s idea of a Halloween costume which included coloring her son’s skin and dressing him as a slave for a school Halloween party has been hit with anger.
The mother made light humor of her decision to cast her son as slave with multiple pictures on her since deleted Instagram account.
Sabrina Flor is now apologizing for her poor taste in judgement after she was met with backlash. She shut down her Instagram account hours after her son appeared at his private school’s costume event on Monday, shared Daily Mail.
Ms Flor has been widely criticised and accused of being a racist after she posted pictures of her son wearing chains, with his body covered in brown body paint from head to toe.
The costume featured the nine-year-old boy with a collar wrapped around his neck while a long plastic chain bounded his neck area to both of his wrists.
She shared an apology on another social media page writing, ‘I just wanted to apologize for the fact! It has never been my intention to offend anyone, I am extremely sorry for everything that has happened,’ the mother supposedly wrote.
‘I feel VERY wrong with the horrid curses and threats that they are sending me. Apologies to all, from the bottom of my heart! #Peace.’
The school where the boy attends, described the mother’s poor choice and said it abhorred any practices that promote slavery.
‘Unfortunately, the choice of the costume for participation of the Halloween, made by the student’s family, touched on a historical wound of our country,’ the private school said in a statement.
Recently a teacher caused quite a stir for allowing her son to dress as Adolf Hitler in a ‘last-minute’ Halloween costume. Read more here.
