Call Me Caitlyn Halloween costume

Joe Otterson reports for The Wrap, Aug. 25, 2o15:

Costume company 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 with expressions of anger about the costume, with some calling it “disgraceful,” “hurtful,” and “transphobic.”

Here are some of the tweets:

  • Connor ‘X’ Hepburn: “Why would you produce a Halloween costume for @Caitlyn_Jenner? That’s basically saying trans is all a joke as its only fake?”
  • Marni Panas: “@Caitlyn_Jenner Halloween costume: Mocking the #transgender community is degrading, disrespectful & harmful. We are humans, not jokes.”
  • em: “‘caitlyn jenner halloween costume’ time for me to backflip the fuck out of this society onto a rocket ship i am leaving for space. goodbye”
  • Shawna Seth: “There’s a Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume, and it’s not okay. Tell @SpiritHalloween to stop cashing in on bigotry”
  • andrew: “The Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume is like a really bad idea”
  • Courtney S: “Am I the only one who thinks that a Caitlyn Jenner inspired Halloween costume is extremely insensitive?! Wtf is wrong w/ ppl”
  • RJ Edwards: “TW for transmisogyny! I just saw an ad for a Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume and I hate this planet!!”
  • RXB SPXXRS: “The struggle that Caitlyn Jenner has to face isn’t a Halloween costume. Whoever made this is a shitty person.”

IMHO, Spirit Halloween should complete the “Call Me Caitlyn” Halloween costume with a mask:

Bruce-Caitlyn Jenner
