WWE interviewer and commentator Renee Young has faced the rage of a modern ultra-PC society and it all is due to a recent Halloween costume. Ms. Young decided to dress up as a Native American and like way too many people these days, she put a zombie twist on it.
Apparently this outfit outraged Native Americans (or zombies) because there was a slight backlash due to it. The cries of ‘racism’ and ‘cultural insensitivity’ were almost as loud as when WWE forced Renee to drop her very French sounding real last name of Paquette in favor of the American melting pot-friendly fake last name of Young.
Correction…there was actually no outrage due to any cultural insensitivity that may or may not have occurred to her in regards to her last name. She has a French heritage, so I guess that’s an okay race to bash, right? I get confused on which races are okay to hate on and which ones aren’t.
Honestly, if people were going to get upset about anything then why not complain about the over-saturation of zombies in pop culture?If you want to groan about THAT, I’m with you.
Renee seemed to not want to cause a ruckus so she removed all photos of the costume from her social media accounts. This lone tweet is the sole opinion we have from her in wake of the controversial pictures…
I feel like I’ve offered my opinion clearly already but I’ll restate my thoughts on the matter again: Racism is terrible and we should all treat each other with respect and dignity. Follow the Golden Rule but geez, modern society is WAY to sensitive. Poor Renee Young was bullied over a costume that I’m sure she wore with no intention of hate whatsoever. Chill out, people.
So what do you think, were her pictures too insensitive? Am I not looking at this situation from the right perspective? Offer up your thoughts in the Comment Section below and I’ll banter with you. If you want to tell me how wrong I am, I’ll hear you out.
