Maybe it seemed like a good idea at the time? To imitate Lil Wayne, country superstar Jason Aldean dressed in blackface and dreadlocks for Halloween — and the Twitterverse is not happy about it.

The "Gonna Know We Were Here" singer, 38, posed in dark makeup, sunglasses and gold jewelry alongside some friends in the photo that first appeared on on Thursday, Nov. 5.

"Nobody needs to be in blackface to successfully pull off a lil Wayne costume," tweeted another.
