*It appears that Halloween is completely off the rails this year.
We told you about the Ray Rice motif some folks just can’t resist.
Now this: the “Sexy Ebola Containment Suit.”
Sheesh, we don’t which is more offensive. Well actually we do. It has to be this. Sorry Ray & Janay. This has to be the most awkward and arguably insensitive of them all.
The controversial outfit, reports Good Morning America, is from online retailer BrandsOnSale, which bills itself as a “Unique Costume Shop and more.” It unveiled the new ensemble days ago, featuring a short white dress, face shield, breathing mask, safety goggles and blue latex gloves at $59.99 per costume. A pair of bright yellow knee-high rubber boots can be purchased at an additional cost.
Here’s what some of the response has been:.
“I’m in complete and utter disgust,” one Twitter user reacted, while another questioned the costume’s existence.
“The fact that there’s a sexy ebola nurse costume proves the sexy costumes have gone out of control,” another wrote.
Others found the gear humorous, writing “Ladies, you’ve still got time…”
But will anyone actually buy these outrageous outfits? Just ask Ray and Janay Rice. There are a LOT of classless and tasteless folks ,just waiting to express themselves.
By the way, the National Retail Federation last month predicted that Americans will spend $2.8 billion on Halloween-wear this year, with $1.4 billion of that amount on adult costumes to outfit approximately 75 million grown-ups. Those numbers contribute to a record two-thirds of Americans buying costumes.
