Asiah, the Guest who shared the video clarified the situation in the comment section. “We shouted, ‘y’all they got blackface,’ and the whole room got silent,” Asiah wrote in the comments section. “Then they tried to defend themselves and wasn’t making any sense. And it’s just a coincidence that they only came up to us and asked if we liked it.”

Asiah further explained in the comments that multiple Guests were airdropped photos from a device that was named after a racial slur. Asiah also claims that the group directly asked them if they liked their face paint.
