ALABAMA -- It's almost Halloween and that means at least one person will commit the racist "faux pas" and wear Blackface as part of their costume.

Meet this year's offender, Heath Morrow, an Alabama teacher. He and his wife are under fire after posting their couple's costume on Facebook.  They decided to go as "Kimye".

Heath' is seen in Blackface wearing Kanye's  signature glasses, and chain, while  holding the sign "Kanye for Prez 2020."

His wife, Shannon is sporting Kim's signature booty.

But naturally people are "booing" this picture and costume choice saying it is, you guessed it, racist!

The father of two and elementary school teacher went on to apologize saying in part:

"My intentions were not malicious or directed toward any certain group of people.

I would also like to say that everyone who knows my character and knows my heart, knows that I have never seen color in my life.

When deciding to dress up for a Halloween party, my wife and I made a decision based on celebrities and the political climate today. I do not want this to reflect on my school or school system based on a poor decision that I made. Again I apologize and this will not happen again."

This is not the first Blackface fail and probably won't be the last.

Maggie is serving up past offenders, and why Blackface is so offensive.

Watch and serve up your thoughts.
