The public has spoken, and does NOT want to see people dressed up as Kim Kardashian, bound and gagged by armed robbers for Halloween.
Costumeish founder Johnathon Weeks says the backlash was so severe by Tuesday afternoon, it became clear the Parisian Robbery Victim costume wasn’t gonna fly. It’s been yanked from his website.
Weeks says this is the first time they’ve removed a costume from their online store — and there have been plenty of borderline tasteless options in the past, including Cecil the Lion and crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford.
The move won’t ruin Halloween for too many — Weeks says he’ll be fully refunding all SIX people who actually forked over the $69.99.
