15 Stars Whose Blackface Blunders Backfired, From Ted Danson to Jimmy Kimmel (Photos)

Don't even think of imitating those celebrities whose black facial defects have failed.
Joni Mitchell
The singer posed in black letters on the cover of her album "Don Juan's Ruthless Daughter" in 1977 and later explained this with the words: "I experienced how to be black."
Ted Danson
The "Cheers" star appeared at a Friars Club Roast in New York in 1993. The then friend Whoopi Goldberg wore black make-up to play an offensive comedy routine with N-words.
Tom Hanks
The Oscar winner came under fire in 2012 when a video of a 2004 fundraiser with Hanks and another man appeared in black letters and stereotypical African clothing. Hanks later condemned the play as "terribly insulting".
Tyra Banks
The presenter of "America's Next Top Model" and her show also recorded heat for a photo shoot in 2009, in which competing models should look "biracial". The styling techniques included darkening the participants' skin.
Paula Deen
Following the fall of the Food Network connoisseur after her infamous N-word controversy, Deen posted a photo on Twitter from the 2011 Halloween episode of her show with her son Bobby, dressed as Ricky Ricardo, complete with brown makeup.
The diva heated up for a 2011 L'Officiel Paris cover with an "African Queen" theme for which the pop star's skin was darkened.
