‘Make your momma cringe?’ MYMP band member draws flak for wearing black face


- Advertisment -

An MYMP band member is in hot water for wearing a black face as his Halloween costume, and saying that the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement is just ‘kalokohan’. 

In its now-deleted virtual gig, MYMP vocalist and guitarist Chin Alcantara, he was seen wearing black make-up and called the movement ‘nonsense.’ 

“Don’t pay attention to those commenting, ‘Educate yourself, ‘Black lives matter.’ Black Lives Matter is nonsense. All lives matter,” he said. 

Netizens are not amused by his reaction. 

He was, however, defended his action, saying that he was only mimicking his ‘idol’ American musician Jimi Hendrix. 

“Just because I put on black make-up on my face and I imitated the color of my idol Jimi Hendrix, it does not mean that I agree with how African Americans or Blacks are being treated,” he said.
