The Utah Jazz’s Twitter account got into the Halloween spirit recently, retweeting a couple of fans who put on their best Jazz costumes. The only problem? The guy who dressed up as Karl Malone did so as blackface.
The tweet was quickly deleted, but the folks over at Deadspin weren’t about to let it fall into the Twitter abyss. You can see the photo of the fans recreating a famous shot of Malone and John Stockton below.
After deleting, the team quickly acknowledged the tweet.
We apologize for the last retweet/tweet moments ago, we have taken it down as it may be insensitive.

Here’s the thing, however: Jimmy Kimmel had these two fans beaten by roughly 10 years.
