A Hawaii man wore blackface inside a courtroom to protest his conviction.
What We Know:
- Mark Char, arrived in First Circuit Court in Honolulu on Monday with what is believed to be black permanent marker covering his face, NBC News reported.
- Char claimed he was being treated like a black man during the trial and stated, “So today, I’m going to be a black man.”
- The 61-year-old was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole for second-degree attempted murder and assault charges. In 2016, he stabbed three men in a road-rage incident.
- Char will face additional charges for his offensive outburst in the courtroom.
That was a terrible idea.
