Joli posted the video on her Instagram with the caption:
“People don’t always catch each other’s insta stories, so I thought I’d post this for more people to see. I was on the Central line going home last night, where I witnessed the disgusting disrespect of blackface shown from this Bulgarian man(He told her his country of origin).”
“ When confronted he claimed to have dressed up as @samuelljackson and responded saying “why not it’s a person he likes”? this is 2018 and you’re in London, don’t expect people to sit quietly and not confront you..”
One user said: ‘He should know the difference between appreciation and appropriation’ while another didn’t find it racist as the user commented: ‘People are so easily offended nowadays.’
