This is quite possibly the most racist Craigslist ad of all time
The author of the now-deleted post wanted to recreate an infamously brutal scene from ‘Django Unchained.’
Feeling at all positive about the human race right now? Well, take one last moment to enjoy it before you read the following sentence: Some complete dipshit of a scumbag posted an ad for an “antebellum” birthday party—and she wanted to hire a few black men to role-play as “mandingo fighters” for the occasion.
In the now-deleted post, the author from Buford, Ga. said she wanted to hire “two athletic black men” to wrestle naked in chains in front of a white audience for $600, a recreation of the infamous “mandingo” fighting scene in Django Unchained. “I realize this is kind of humiliating, but my hubby loves that movie, so I am willing to compensate very generously,” she writes. Um, have either of you guys seen how that movie ends?
While this could very well be the work of a troll, even in the limitless expanse of garbage that is Craigslist, such racist dumbfuckery couldn’t possibly survive, and the post was lately deleted. But we all know it was you, Paula Deen.
