NEW YORK — Twenty days before Halloween, we may already be able to crown the winner of this year’s most offensive costume.
A costume on the website of Halloween retailer Costumeish depicting Kim Kardashian West tied up as a robbery victim was making the rounds online Tuesday and met fierce backlash across social media.
The costume comes on the heels of an incident in Paris is which Kardashian West was held at gunpoint and robbed in her private apartment by men dressed as police officers. The men made off with jewelry totaling more than $10 million.
The $69.99 costume — which has since been taken down from Costumeish’s site — consists of a “white short sexy robe,” a long black wig, a “$4 million dollar ring,” a fake gag and rope to be used as hand ties.
“She has devoted her life to promoting American decadence, youth and hedonism but all that flashy living caught up with her one night in Paris,” the description of the costume read. “This Halloween have some fun with pop culture and dress just like the Queen of Social media with our sensational ‘Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume.'”
People took to social media to blast the online retailer and condemn the costume as insensitive and “disgusting.”
In the wake of the incident that left Kardashian West “badly shaken but physically unharmed,” the reality star has maintained a blackout on her social media, which have amassed a large following.
