This Kim Kardashian Robbery Halloween Costume Draws the Ire of Everybody
Oct 19 2016 by Francis Osborne
Costumeish, the store that released similarly horrific getups like the "Sexy Ebola Costume" and "Bruce Gender Olympian Costume", recently came out with a costume that mocks and trivializes Kim Kardashian's harrowing robbery experience in Paris. A Halloween costume depicting reality star Kim Kardashian has surfaced and many people are outraged.
A Halloween costume inspired by Kim Kardashian's Paris robbery is being sold by online retailer Costumeish, and the internet is not having it. "Many men wear expensive watches, necklaces, etc. and robbing them is still considered a crime".
Called the "Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume Kit", the costume's replete with sunglasses, a bathrobe and ropes.
But Costumeish later tweeted they had chose to remove the "Parisian Heist" costume from their website saying "sorry if we offended anyone".
Nonetheless, people were able to make the connection and voice their opinions. You can choose to be as naked as you want or as obnoxious as you want, and very few will have something to say - because Halloween - duh.
On social media, the company was scorned for trying to profit off Kardashian's misfortune.

Instead of launching its own service in the famously restrictive market, it will instead license content to local companies. Netflix raked in a record $2.15 billion in revenue, marking a whopping increase of 36 percent compared with previous year .
But, he added, "Halloween is also a day that people can express their sometimes twisted sick sense of humor".
Others-including Costumeish's vice president, Johnathon Weeks-didn't see the harm in it.
The company are well known for being controversial, and this isn't the first time it's had to remove one of its items.
"Cecil was coming up, and just like with numerous other ones, like the Ebola or the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge costumes, we see the trend from users", Weeks said.
The concept of the costume itself is offensive enough to not require explanation as to why it's completely messed up, but somehow the costume's description makes it worse.
We reached out Costumeish about its choice of words and costume ideas, but haven't heard back of this posting.
