Nurse fired for dressing up as ‘Blackface Beyonce’ for Halloween



A woman who reportedly dressed up as Beyoncé for Halloween thought it would be a good idea to include blackface in her costume, but on Monday she faced the consequences when she was fired from her job as a nurse at a Kansas City, Mo., hospital.

According to Yahoo Lifestyle,Blackface wasn’t the only unfortunate decision Shelbi Elliott-Heenan made this Halloween, though. The wife and mother also shared a picture of herself on Facebook posing in the offensive costume alongside a man, also in blackface, who’s dressed as the singer’s husband, Jay-Z.

Initially unidentified, it is now believed the man is Elliott-Heenan’s husband, Jasmond Heenan, who reportedly works for Costco Wholesale.
