Utah Jazz retweet photo of blackface Karl Malone costume

- October 28th, 2013

It seems every time Halloween rolls around, another sports-related blackface photo shows up on Twitter.

In 2011 it was Raffi Torres dressed as Jay-Z at a Phoenix Coyotes party.

In 2012, it was Toronto Maple Leafs centre Tyler Bozak in a Michael Jackson get-up.

Now, ladies and gentlemen, your 2013 entrant: The Utah Jazz, via their official Twitter account.

The tweet was deleted shortly after it was posted (not before Deadspin got a screenshot) and was followed by an apology.
