Every year, it seems like there’s a new, tasteless Halloween costume which succeeds in offending almost everybody. After all, let us not forget the ever-so-tacky Cecil the Lion costume.
This year, I assumed the tacky Halloween costume du jour would be Harambe, or perhaps something Donald Trump-related. However, a retailer called Costumeish recently chose to release a Kim Kardashian “Parisian Heist Robbery Victim” costume, which has apparently taken the unofficial trophy for “Most Insensitive Halloween Costume Ever.”
The costume set includes a short white bathrobe, a gag, a long black wig, some oversized sunglasses, rope, and a fake diamond ring.
It’s almost amazing how effortlessly this company was able to capitalize on someone else’s traumatizing assault, isn’t it?
Not surprisingly, people started calling Costumeish out on the tasteless display almost immediately.
The company’s response was, essentially “Sorry you guys feel that way!”
However, they did remove the item from their website — which, at the very least, minimizes the number of assholes who can use this base outfit in place of a remotely creative costume.
And, if you really had your depraved heart set on dressing up as a bound-and-gagged Kim K this year, never fear: there’s still a “Giant Boob” costume available, which should fit you perfectly.
