Can we get one thing straight? Just because you didn’t INTEND to offend anyone doesn’t mean you DIDN’T. If someone tells you that what you’re doing is offensive, how can you turn back and tell them that they are in the wrong? How about you acknowledge that you were in the wrong (even though you didn’t MEAN to) and promise not to do it again? I’m tired of all these random ass people coming to defend brownfacing cosplayers.
BROWNFACE/BLACKFACE/YELLOWFACE IS OFFENSIVE WHETHER YOU INTEND IT OR NOT.
