Someone Thought This Kim Kardashian Halloween Costume Was A Good Idea. It\'s Not.

Someone Thought This Kim Kardashian Halloween Costume Was A Good Idea. It's Not.

The Debrief: Six people bought this costume before it was pulled from the website...

Kim Kardashian has had to face a wave of victim blaming following a robbery in Paris last week, where she was held at gunpoint in her home and had over €10m worth of jewellery stolen. Some claimed that she made up the whole event and even went so far as to say she deserved it. Now costume company, Costumeish, have decided to cash in on the reality star’s horrific experience in selling a ‘Robbery Victim’ Halloween costume.  

The costume, which has now been taken down from the website, attempts to depict Kim’s horrendous ordeal and comes with a ‘fake gag’, ‘two feet of rope’ and a ‘white short sexy robe’. A disturbing image of the costume on the store’s website shows a model, who we can assume is impersonating Kim, being bound and gagged. 

The store doesn’t actually name her in their description of the costume, but instead refer to her as the ‘Queen of Social media:’

'This Halloween it’s all about the #Hallomeme and who better than America’s goddess of all things glamorous “Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume?” 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 when armed men bound her, stole her jewelry and her peace of mind. 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” Costume.’ 

It doesn't take a genius to figure out who they're referring to and fans on social media were quick to react towards the distasteful costume. 

 

 Initially Costumeish failed to acknowledge how disrespectful the costume was, refusing to take it down because it was 'selling well'. Only after the severe backlash on social media did Costumeish founder Johnathon Weeks agree to pull the costume from the online store and to refund the six people who bought it.
