Costume Agent won’t quit marketing a controversial Halloween costume for Caitlyn Gender.
TMZ.com reports the costume is one of the best sellers of the current Halloween season for the company.
“It’s a costume,” a rep tells TMZ. “It’s funny.”
Critics claim the costume, which includes an Olympic track and field uniform with Bruce Jenner’s No. 935, a gold medal and tiny shorts that were in vogue when Jenner won the Olympic gold medal in 1976. It also comes with a long artificial wig styled like Jenner now wears her hair.
Ebay has been swamped with criticism for selling the $44.95 costume for Halloween. Several transgender charities have ripped it as mocking of Jenner instead of being an homage.
One caption in the online promo urges buying the costume to “Show your love for Caitlyn Jenner with this awesome adult costume.”
But complaints appear to have resonated with some customers.
It was enough for eBay to remove the costume. But it’s still available on Amazon.
Would you consider wearing the costume to a Halloween party?
Is it a honor to Caitlyn? Or a slap in her face?
What are your thoughts?
