A group of white teenagers were exposed for wearing blackface and taunting visitors with racist memes at Six Flags.
A handful of white teens allegedly showed up to Six Flags Fright Fest with black paint on their faces. A TikToker posted a video of the teenagers waiting in line for a ride. One of the teens asked a black person if they liked his face paint.
The individual responded, “What are you supposed to be?” The teen never answered the question but explained he was trying to paint something else but messed up.
Hi @GrantBulldogs ! One of your students, Isaac Handley, decided it would be funny to go to @SixFlags in blackface and ask some black children if they liked his and his friend’s painted faces. This is disgusting behavior! #TikTok https://t.co/2VJAx9nnOH

The TikToker also claims the group airdropped memes to random guests under the name “Jigaboo Jones.”
“We got stuff AirDropped with the name ‘Jigaboo Jones’ when there was no other Black [people] around. And they asked if we [liked] his face when they came to us,” the TikToker wrote.
One photo, in particular, was an image of a black child holding a toy. The picture came with a message that said, “buy me one.”
Some commenters identified the teen in the video as Isaac Handley, who’s social media accounts were deleted following the viral clip.
Other users also confirmed that they experienced the same thing during their time at the amusement park.
“Similar thing happened to me and my siblings when we went to Six Flags, AirDropped photos and all,” one user added.
It’s unclear which Six Flags location the incident took place but users speculated it happened at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois.
