Here we go. In what will most likely be the first of a lot of stories about people wearing blackface for Halloween, a Missouri nurse has been fired after posting a picture of herself as Beyoncé on social media. Shelbi Elliott-Heenan was let go from her position at St. Luke's Hospital in Lee's Summit, Missouri.
Someone alerted hospital personnel to the Facebook post. Elliott-Heenan and her husband both darkened their skin to portray Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
The hospital said it does not comment on personnel matters but Elliott-Heenan was no longer working there. When will people learn? Why is this still a thing?
