After complaints from several people, Cafe Hon removed a picture early Thursday morning of one of its staff members in blackface for Halloween.
The Hampden restaurant had posted the photo on its Facebook page. It showed an employee, in blackface, apparently dressed for Halloween as Whitney Houston, singing with a smudge of white powder around the nose.
"We humbly apologize for our misjudgement in posting a Halloween picture, we have removed the picture," Cafe Hon said on Facebook early Thursday.
But some people were still upset.
"NO. It was blackface," wrote John Flannery. "Always wrong. Period. No excuse."
