Student Told He Can’t Wear Halloween Costume Because It Appropriates HIS OWN CULTURE


A Colombian high school student was told that he cannot dress as a Mariachi band member because it’s “offensive.”

MRCTV reports:

Joshua Sewerynek, a ninth grade student at St. Thomas Aquinas Secondary School, planned to dress up as part of a mariachi band with his friends. The school, however, stated the Colombian student’s costume is “very offensive” and would not be allowed because “culture is not a costume.”

Sewerynek told MRCTV that students were instructed to tweet their prospective Halloween costumes at the school’s official Twitter page to make sure their costumes would be approved.

Leave it to liberals to suck all of the fun out of Halloween.
