Founder of world-renowned cocktail festival is slammed for putting on a blackface to perform in a Zulu parade at Mardi Gras

The founder of a world-renowned New Orleans cocktail festival has come under fire after a photo showed her in blackface and Zulu Krewe regalia for Mardi Gras.

The photo on Ann Tuennerman's Facebook page was captured by her husband, Paul Tuennerman, as he made a video recording at the Zulu den.

It was captioned: 'As he said, "Throw a little blackface on and you lose all your Media Skills."

Criticism soon erupted on Facebook.

'It is 2017,' said one critical post. 'No reason for adults or anyone to still be putting on blackface, even if tradition.'

Some were upset at the comment - deeming it racially offensive - but not so much at the blackface get-up. Others were upset at both.

According to NOLA.com, New Orleans bartender Mark Schettler said on Facebook: 'The comment suggests that by performing blackness Ann loses her ability to intelligently and effectively engage media. Which is racist.'

Liberals think that they have a right to tell others what they may or may not do.

Again the myth the blackface is "cultural appropriation" or "racially insensitive" is fairly ridiculous when employed at a drunken party in New Orleans.
