9 Halloween Costumes That Went Too Far

In light of the Kim Kardashian robbery Halloween costume going viral a few weeks ago, readers may wonder what other examples may lie of hilariously inappropriate costumes.

Here are a few examples of other widely offensive costumes this Halloween season:


Ray Rice and Janay Palmer: This couple is proudly posing for a Halloween photo – dressed as Ray Rice, a football player persecuted for domestic violence – and his wife Janay Palmer.



Sexy Ebola Nurse Costume: Don’t ask me why costume companies thought it would be a comedic notion to make one of the most unapologetic, hopeless diseases into a “sexy” costume. This costume remains on the shelves of multiple retailers and online stores.


Zombie Joan Rivers: Here we have someone who felt it was appropriate to dress up as zombie Joan Rivers, former television host, just one month after her death in September of 2014.



Amanda Bynes: Although not the most offensive of costumes to make this list, this still may not be the wisest choice – given that Bynes was placed into a psychiatric care facility, for strange behavior said to be due to mental illness.



Any kind of costume promoting terrorism: Although it may be thought this would be an obvious avoidance, it’s surprising just how many people find this amusing. It’s not. Don’t do it. Please. Thank you.


Caitlyn Jenner: No matter what your thoughts are on Caitlyn Jenner’s transition, it would also be wise for those who identify as white males to stray from this one.



Nazis: Also, please do not pull a Prince Harry and dress as a Nazi for Halloween.


Clowns: Lastly, whether this is a scary one to you or not, you probably do not want to be punched on Halloween night. Don’t do it.

From Sexy Ebola to Zombie Joan Rivers, this has been a cringe-worthy collection of Halloween costumes that went a bit too far.
