Costume company, Spirit Halloween is under fire after a costume gets torn to shreds on social media. The Spirit Halloween is facing serious backlash after offering a Caitlyn Jenner costume in time for Halloween.
The costume recreates Jenner’s look when she debuted as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair in June, complete with shorts, a padded top, a wig, and a sash that reads, “Call Me Caitlyn.”
Twitter blew up with expressions of anger about the costume, with some calling it “disgraceful,” “hurtful,” and “transphobic.”
Here are some reactions on Twitter:
TW for transmisogyny! I just saw an ad for a Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume and I hate this planet!!
The struggle that Caitlyn Jenner has to face isn’t a Halloween costume. Whoever made this is a shitty person.
