No one shall make fun of emperor Obama! So says a Kentucky hospital that forced all its employees into so-called “sensitivity training” after three employees entered the company Halloween costume contest dressed as Obama in a straightjacket being escorted by two policemen.
The “offensive” costume
After the costume party, the bosses at Jennie Stuart Medical Center in Hopkinsville, Kentucky decided they weren’t amused when a small handful of employees complained about the costume contest entry. Not many must have been offended, though, because the costume won third place in the competition.
After the party was over the “prize” was handed out by hospital administrators: all 750 employees had to take “sensitivity training.”
The VP of Human Resources has also demanded that all future costumes be free of political, religious, ethnic or gender based subject. So, in other words, don’t dress up as anything.
The story, reported by WZTV Nashville is going viral this Halloween.
So what do you think? Funny or offensive? Yeah, like I have to ask.
