Facebook has an embarrassing way of catching up with you, or at least that’s what the Assistant District attorney of Brooklyn is beginning to realize. Justin Marcus is dealing with the backlash of photos of himself in black face and a rasta wig surfacing on the internet. As if that was not humiliating enough for Marcus, there are also images of his simulating a jail house rape scene — ouch.
These picture are from a Halloween Facebook album back from Marcus’ college days. In the photo of him in black face, Marcus was impersonating a jamaican as the photo caption read, ” What part of Jamaica you from mon? da beach mon.” Another album features Marcus and a friend simulating s*x in a jail house behind bars.
DA spokesman Jerry Schmetterer spoke in regards to the matter, stating that implying that Marcus’ actions were not out of any intention to insult or offend anyone. In defense of Marcus, Schmetterer said that “this is something he did about six years ago while he was in college,” “He apologized. He admits it was childish and inappropriate.”
Marcus decided not to comment to the press on these images but did apologize for having offended people with those photos. Charles Hynes, the District Attorney in Brooklyn, accepted Marcus’ apology. It does not seem as if MArcus lost his job over the micro-scandal. The moral of this story is that if you ever intend on ending up in a position of power, be sure to erase any humiliating photos of yourself — especially when you decide to put on black face.
