LEE’S SUMMIT — This week’s “I Messed Up A Good Job Award” belongs to Shelbi Heenan — an audacious white nurse who was fired from Saint Luke’s Hospital for, get this: painting her countenance black in a jocular attempt to mirror Beyoncé for Halloween. The medical facility is located in Lee’s Summit (Missouri). So, how did she get caught? The Caucasian damsel posted a photo on Facebook that shows her donning blackface as Queen Bey.

Shelbi’s paint job doesn’t look too bad.

But she clearly lacks Beyoncé’s derrière and voluptuousness.

Her white boyfriend, who’s also in the pic, wore blackface as Jay Z.



Sadly, this ain’t the first time Shelbi revealed her urban fetish. Word on the street claims she wore blackface in 2009 as a member of Destiny’s child. St. Luke administrators eventually said enough is enough. Shelbi was promptly conveyed a pink slip and an escort to the front door.

“On Monday afternoon, Saint Luke’s Health System became aware of a Saint Luke’s East Hospital employee who posted photos on personal social media accounts of her and another individual dressed in blackface for what appears to be a Halloween event,” hospital officials said in a statement on Tuesday.

“This information was shared with appropriate health system personnel and an investigation was initiated immediately. While it is against Saint Luke’s policy to comment on specific personnel matters, we can confirm that this individual is no longer a Saint Luke’s employee.”

Do you agree with the hospital’s decision?

  1. But it’s ok for that yellowbone Beyonce to darken her skin and go as toni braxton?

  2. Why did they fire her?

  3. They just want to be black nothing wrong with that. Until they get the cops called on them for selling bottled water.. BBQing.. Driving with their eyes open.. Breathing…

    no fun allowed around here

  5. Be sure to post On St. Luke’s Hospital Facebook page your comments on this issue?

  6. She should sue the hospital for wrongful termination. Dressing up on Halloween has nothing to do with her job.

  8. Beyonce once dressed as Frida Kahlo for Halloween why did no one boycott her and end her career for that? She dressed as a Mexican isn’t that the same thing this nurse did? Beyonce admired Frida so dressed as her.

  9. I saw Al Roker dressed up like Doc Brown (white) this morning. Does he still have a job? Why?

  10. Someone should call the cops on that black couple.. See how fast they wipe it off. 🤣🤣🤣

    They could at least be accurate. Neither Jay or Bey are that dark. Almost like they were trying to exaggerate which makes it even more insulting. What’s also insulting is the cheap trash they were wearing. Bey & Jay wouldn’t be caught dead in that garbage.

  12. they’re just havin fun
    lighten up people

    If I see a white person in blackface I’m calling the police and saying “there’s a black person with a gun come quick”. Then I’ll hide and see how things play out.
