Donny McGowan says he was booted from The Bob in Grand Rapids after his controversial Halloween costume spurred outrage.

In a Facebook post, McGowan wrote:

"Why did I get kicked out of the Bob in Grand Rapids because of my costume last night... They could dress like us but we can't dress like them. Black Power p.s. I had the best costume out there."

His costume?

 A KKK outfit... The situation is like one of the best moments in Comedy Central's "Chapelle's Show." A man is born blind and, despite being black, becomes a leading white supremacist.
