University Melts Down After A Sorority Girl Dressed As Pocahontas For Halloween

Pocahontas was a rather sympathetic character so one might  have thought that this was praise for her people

The governing body of University of Oklahoma sorority’s system condemned one of its members on Thursday for dressing up as Pocahontas for Halloween.

Reagan West, a member of OU’s Pi Beta Phi chapter, decided to dress up as a “Pocahottie” for Halloween as a way to stick it to political correctness, according to a now-deleted tweet.

The backlash against this costume decision was overwhelming on social media, with many leftists encouraging harassment against the offending sorority member.

Here’s my SWEET Halloween costume that justifies I’m related to Pocahontas … who was raped as a young girl. Yay cultural appropriation !!! — Davan (@DavanRaby) November 2, 2017

One of the leaders of the harassment against West was that of an account with the handle @sydnerain, a Native American student at Oklahoma.

In an unhinged tweet thread now hidden behind a private account, @sydnerain told her followers to “drag” the sorority member for being a “white supremacist.”

“I’d like to kick off Native American Heritage Month with this drag because y’all need to know we are not playing with you. This has to stop,” sydnerain declared.

“Here we observe the settler [West] at her finest: aware of the harm she will commit to an entire community, she goes for it, like a bitch would,” another tweet read.

The thread earned hundreds of retweets and likes before she locked her account.

West herself issued an apology following the outrage against her costume. “I am truly sorry if I unintentionally offended anyone in the Native American community with my Pocahontas Halloween costume,” West said in her statement shared on Twitter. “It was never my intent to be disrespectful.”

Never apologize when they pull this sort of nonsense. It just emboldens them to plumb greater depths of lunacy.
