Every Halloween society shames them and yet retailers keep selling these tasteless costumes

0

Every October at least one or two celebrities ignores all advice and ends up creating a PR nightmare by wearing an offensive Halloween costume.

Some of the most common costume offenses are: Black-face, a stereotype of a cultural figure, a topical costume inspired by a tragic news story or a zombie version of a recently deceased celebrity, just to name a few.

Retailers like Amazon and Walmart faced backlash on Sunday after images of an Anne Frank inspired children's costume they were selling went viral on social media .

A spokesperson from the company HalloweenCostumes.com released this statement:

Amazon sells a variety of children's costumes labeled as a "Girls War Time Evacuee."

One user pointed out the possibility that the costumes were intended for theatrical use on stage during a school play.

While that's a fair argument to make, there are some controversial costumes that can't get away with the same excuse.

<h2>Here Are Some Of The Most Tasteless Costumes Available For Purchase On-line:</h2>

<h4>Any costume that has something attached to your crotch.</h4>

The first two crotch offenders belong in the next category as well.

<h4>Costumes that play on stereotypes from other racial groups and foreign cultures</h4>

If people living in the middle east dressed up in "fat, dumb, American" costumes, we would (rightly) be outraged.

<h4>Any version of a prison jumpsuit costume.</h4>

The sad state of the America's criminal justice system isn't fodder for a "sexy" Halloween costume.

<h4>Political costumes.</h4>

No matter how clever you think it is, it's probably not.

<h4>Any costume that involves the wearer either being a body part or having a body part of the opposite gender.</hr4>

Nothing good ever started with a man wearing a penis on his head.
