Trump Supporter Posts His Kid's Racist Halloween Costume Then Deletes Account

What's wrong with some people?

An extremely disturbing case of racism has emerged after a Twitter post appeared which showed a white child wearing the MAGA hat along with a black and a white kid bound in chains. The Twitter user, Jonathan Lee Burgsteiner, as reported by god.dailydot, has since deleted his account.

The three kids in the image are supposed to represent Donald Trump with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, tied in chains. If that wasn't all, the kid who is supposedly representing Donald Trump is also signaling with the 'OK' sign which is a white supremacist symbol according to the Anti-Defamation League.

There have been numerous cases of people using black-face and cultural appropriations during Halloween but to involve kids in this reflects deep-seated issues. Needless to say, people came forward on Twitter and forced the man to delete his account. This may have only removed one racist from the platform but there are still numerous others who regularly propagate hate messages and use social media for their vile ideologies.
