Ridiculous racial controversy gets former cosplay champion banned.

Comic Con bans 'blackface' cosplay
French cosplay champion Alice Livanart has been removed from the EuroCosplay finals by organisers after she was accused of "blackface." The EuroCosplay Championships, to be held at MCM Comic Con in London later this month, pit together the winners of individual competitions in 25 European countries.
To tell the story short, the previous winner of the EuroCosplay cosplay championship has been acussed of "blackfacing" and banned from this year competition. The whole thing is based around the fact that she made a cosplay of Pyke with dark skin. I swear I still can't understand the thing. For a start, is Pyke supposed to be canonically black or white? Because I don't think so. Opinions?
