Will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas wore a Black Face Costume during the VMA Awards 2010 and was received by people with different reactions. Some of the people said that the black face costume signaled some racial undertones especially on Twitter but Will.i.am immediately defended himself saying that there is nothing racial about what he wore.
Here are the statements of the rapper:
"1st. just because I where all black including head mask as expression and emphasize my outfit, it shouldn't be looked at as racial. Let go of the past. there are far more important things 2 bark about. (Jobs, health, education) not a black man wearing all black everything."
"Are you guys serious? my outfit set "black people back 100 yrs" choose your twits wisely. no education sets people back, no jobs, bad health.”
