Those awkward moments when
- An Oklahoma mayor’s husband thinks dressing up in white sheets and carry burning torches like the Ku Klux Klan would be a fun Halloween idea and
- The president of the University of Louisville, KY dresses as a “Mexican.”
Everyone is sorry now, OK? Can we please move on?
Lahoma Mayor Theresa Sharp has since apologized for her husband, Cary Sharp’s, actions.
“[It] happened on my property. You know, I don’t know what else to say other than I’m sorry to the community and I’m sorry to the public,” Mayor Sharp told a reporter, who noted that the mayor was holding back tears.
“It was the stupidity and actions of four separate individuals and it does not reflect on me or anyone else who is in the community.”
Cary Sharp said the display, complete with hoods, a cross and bonfire, was just for Halloween.
And although a cross could be seen in the background, Cary Sharp insisted that no cross was burned.
“[A] cousin of mine came up with the idea of dressing up like KKK members and so we took a couple of sheets and cut holes in them and wore the sheets, and it was a very, very poor decision,” he said.
Speaking of poor decisions, University of Louisville President James Ramsey his wife, Jane, and staff members, dressed up as “Mexicans” for their Halloween party. They are also sorry, now. OK?
