Colin Kaepernick Halloween

A Philadelphia officer is under investigation for wearing a Colin Kaepernick Halloween costume consisting of an afro wig and blackface makeup.

Officer Hung Nguyen uploaded a photo to his Instagram account that showed him wearing an afro wig and dark makeup. The photo caused an uproar on social media.

Police are now investigating who took the photo of Nguyen.

When contacted by NBC10, Officer Nguyen said he was hurt and upset before hanging up the phone.

"We don’t know the nexus of the photo," said Philadelphia Police Captain Sekou Kinebrew. "It could have been some sort of computer graphic that we see, or it could be something he physically applied on himself. That’s something we are looking to ascertain."

Rochelle Bilal, head of a group that represents active and retired minority officers, told ABC10: “If he is the one who put the blackface on and the bush and put all of it out there, then he shouldn’t be a police officer. I don’t know authentically if it’s his image but you put it on your page and you left it there, for everybody to see."

Nguyen, a 22-year member of the police force, is currently on desk duty pending the results of the investigation.

    ??????????????? A cop tho will mfs ever learn....

    #lesigh I don't understand why some sprites can't dress up as their favorite entertainer/athlete without having to change their skin tone. My boy was Dash from The Incredibles for Halloween and we didn't get mayonnaise or some other white substance to make his costume more realistic. And folks still understood that he was Dash even though he's a little chocolate boy...

    Hung Nguyen 's natural complexion is very similar to Colin's. There was no need for black face. He chose to be an a$$hole. Computer graphic or not, his actions were of hate.

    Exactly! If you are wearing the costume people will know who you are no need to change your skin color.

    Fools want to say Al Roker was wrong to dress as the old white man from Back to the Future.....I say How Sway? when he was portraying the black version of the character...no white face.

    Same way Gabby Union dressed as Gwen Stefani(sp) everyone knew who she was and she didn't use any white make up. Non black folks know exactly what they're doing when they use blackface.

    Do these people live under a rock?!?!? Blackface during Halloween has been an ISSUE FOR YEARS, yet they still keep doing it and claiming ignorance. If you're THAT dumb that you haven't paid attention, year after year, to people getting in trouble over this and the controversy surrounding it, then you deserve all the consequences you receive. Ugghhh...

  • Itzgoingdown

    Any black news anchor, entertainer or POLITICIAN who agrees with everything white liberals want is nothing more than a white liberal in BLACKFACE. You can't serve two Gods. Some liberal issues hurt the black community.

    No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else. he will hold to the one, and despise the other, Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
    Matthew 6:24

  • RealATLPeach36

    Perhaps he could have passed on the black face considering Kaepernick is 37 shades lighter...

  • Jefferey Franklin

    But he is not even dark skin......

  • hi-liter

    Al Roker too. But black folks have always had to be white characters for Halloween because that's all we had.
    I can't be the only rose that grew up wearing costumes like Wonder Woman and had to put that plastic mask on with Wonder Woman white face on it..

  • Tiff J

    If POC can't dress as white characters for Halloween, then half the kids on Halloween wouldn't have any costumes. LOL

  • hi-liter

    He looks like those Werewolf kids who work in the Circus with that disease that grows hair all over their faces

  • Tlowe89

    He looks like he has pudding on his face and he stuck his fingers in a outlet.... I’m not seeing anything resembling a black persons skin nor anything resembling a light skinned man such as Colin. Why do they do this... he doesn’t see us putting on yellow paint on our face for Halloween and saying we’re Asians......

  • Vonn

    You're not. I was Annie, Wonder Woman, and a host of other white folks. My face was never painted white. These AHoles don't have any decency. White folks always want us to " get over it" , but they're the ones that won't let racism go.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    LOL him and that Beyoncé bish can’t be serious! ????? First of all, neither of them are the color that these boneheads are depicting. Second of all, how can they not understand that in the 21st century black face is getting people fired?

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

  • Tlowe89

    Omg he does.

  • Vonn

    I hate that I know exactly what you're talking about...and I agree. ?

  • Bossy704

    He would have looked more like him without the blackface

  • Rayne

    He’s only hurt cause he’s about to get disciplined for taking the pic. He took the pic himself. I mean who else has access to YOUR Instagram?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    All of that over Dash from the Incredibles?

  • Yoni7

    THIS GIF!!! LMAOOOO

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Lmao, yep!

  • Roxie Moxie

    Are people dumb? Retarded? Or slow? It's like leaving your kids in a car on a hot day. Either you're one of the three adjectives above, or it's intentional.

    Because repitition is how we learn, right? So, aren't people learning from previous and similar scenarios? Or am I missing something?

  • Itzgoingdown

    I get it. You don't like liberal hypocrisy being questioned and challenged. The issue and my comment is about Blackface.

  • Stationarity

    Yeah- What was the point of the blackface besides to be racist? Kap is super light. He barely looks African American.

    Bush? An afro is a bush?

  • Phillybruh

    I just like hearing about them getting fired. Don't these people have any friends that will say hey maybe putting that on the gram is not such a good idea. Who are these peoples day ones.

  • davine puddin

    This fool was going into all sort of sexual details on the phone at 6 am about the night before in front of 4 kids under 9. Normally would have cursed him out. But i thought wait this might go viral and embedded was a morals clause in my employee rules. and i happened to have my post office breast cancer tshirt on. I just stayed shut mouthed. We been warned from the union not to wear act nor post any questionable things outside of work. Or we can lose our jobs. Sneaking an hour in the break room every few hours for years didnt cause this girl to lose her job but a dude off duty drinking a beer with his mail handler tshirt on in a bar got him fired. Now i keep my iconix on while reading a book with shades.

  • PhillyFacts

    I feel after getting off desk duty they need to take him out of the Airport Unit which is one of many low crime units for the privileged, veterans, and the elite (masons). Let this officer be surrounded by what he despises, give that arse a one way ticket to the hood... FOH

  • gellie

    These are your High IQ folks, ladies and gentlemen. Recessive degenerate lice demons with no sense.

  • Trace da Ace

    ignorant.....did yall see the nurse up in Indiana that dressed like Beyonce with black face and wig? She got fired for that mess......you would think they would learn...guess not.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    So he can shoot someone in the back? Nah, they can keep him.

  • Fire & Ice

    Yes. I read about it yesterday. I don't know why yt thinks this remotrre funny ?

  • FukkFolks2018

    Fired

  • Nik

    Love me some P. Mooney.

  • Nik

    It baffles me. Really and truly.

  • Nik

    THANK YOU!?????

  • Nik

    ?????

  • Nik

    You just brought back some memories. How in the hail did we breath in those death masks?

  • MJF

    He'll be off desk duty by next week, sad to say but high probability. When will it stop?? smh

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Fire him and erase that mural on 66th and Champlost of the fallen officers...all of them are white and they replaced the Hispanic female officers mural with another white man's face....when you go past the 35th it looks tacky as hell...the majority of that district is black and there are better ways to memorialize someone....

  • Yup, I said it

    Why do they keep trying this? White people never paint themselves red for the Indians, or yellow for Asians but they are freaking obsessed with taking charcoal or black shoe polish and rubbing it on their body. No black person looks like that. Of course they think it's funny. Their ancestors were the ones who created black face comedy. Its in their genes.

  • hi-liter

    ???

  • Tahj

    You know whats so crazy. Him and Colin are the same shade. and anyone who wears a black face has to know that that is crazy and offensive. Because black people arent that shade of BLACK. Man this world is crazy

  • Tahj

    I know LOL SMH

  • Tahj

    I said the same thing!

  • Solstice

    I’m almost afraid to ask that question. I am not so sure it ever will. ? Smh

  • PhillyFacts

    Never thought about that.....The way this commissioner is firing these cops for shootings, and the DA is holding them on first degree murder charges I doubt any of them really want too. I commend this commissioner he is very proactive when it comes to corrupt police officers, he just fired another one this week for a killing . Now if they're convicted, and will serve jail time is up to the judge and jury.

  • SumthinSweeter

    I was thinking the same thing. It's always the darkest hues they use no matter the fact that we represent a rainbow. Shows that they see us all as the same color. Something the idiot colorist in our own race should think about.

  • Keyshia Ray

    Exactly!

  • Dun Dilly

    FIRST OF ALL.... he didn't need that dark makeup to be KAP...hell, he could have stayed white or got himself a "LITTLE" sun and added the FRO to play KAP

  • Renee26

    His natural skin tone would have worked just fine... Fire the pig

  • Renee26

    People should spray paint over them.... Fugg em and their antics

  • Quitedeliteful

    “It could have been some sort of computer graphic that we see, or it could be something he physically applied on himself
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Who cares??? He's been on the force 22 years which means he's been in America just as long, if not longer. How did he think this would be acceptable? I say throw him off of the force and hold him until ICE can come deport him back to Vietnam...

    It's been well established that black face is unacceptable. At this point, non-melaninated people are doing it to antagonize other non-white people.

  • Waya Hedia

    Oh for cryin' out loud. All this uproar over costume makeup is so childish. Grow a spine. You are always telling the rest of the world how strong and powerful you are.. but when someone puts in some effin makeup you fall to pieces. What a bunch of cry babies.

  • Melanated Goddess??

    Thank you for not only exposing your racism but that YOU'RE NOT BLACK!
