There are a lot of people in this world that make me want to bury my head in my hands because they are an incredible embarrassment to humankind. I feel like Halloween is when those shockingly perplexing people really show their true colors.
Whether it's flat out politically incorrect or just ignorance, the following people take the cake for for the most distasteful Halloween costumes of 2015.
1. Bill Cosby and a Passed Out Girl
I think the countless victims that were raped by Bill Cosby do not need to be shamed by this really uncomfortable costume. I find this to be very insensitive to the women who endured horrible and traumatic experiences with the famous comedian.
2. Lamar Odom in the Hospital and Khloé Kardashian
While it is true that Lamar didn't make the best decisions at the Bunny Ranch, he is still a human being with family and friends that love him. During this difficult time in which he needs support and love, it seems disrespectful to dress up as him in the hospital when he is currently battling for his future.
3. A Syrian Refugee
I don't even know where to begin. I don't understand why anyone would want to dress up as this on Halloween.
Syrian refugees are literally risking their lives as they give away their life savings and board tiny unprotected boats with the hopes of land under their feet and an opportunity to start over. Many children and adults have died while making the treacherous journey. Not okay.
4. A Man Who Died on the Freeway
This man was ejected out of his car while his dead body hung lifelessly on a freeway sign for passerby to see the day before Halloween.
While his family and friends are mourning, this man is making fun of him as a costume. How horrible!
5. Walter Palmer and Cecil the Lion
It might be the veganism talking, but I love animals and I believe they are just as worthy to be alive as I am.
Therefore, when I had heard that dentist Walter Palmer had wasted thousands of dollars that could have been used for something more useful than access to killing the rare lion Cecil, I was outraged. This costume is just unnecessary.
6. Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner Hybrid Costume
Caitlyn Jenner is so brave for stepping out and finally opening up about her journey transitioning into a woman.
A costuming poking fun at her experience is simply distasteful.
I would like to challenge people to perhaps take a minute and think about what kind of message they're putting out to the world. I hope people can really stop and ponder if what they're doing can hurt anyone's feelings.
If you even have a bit of doubt in your mind that your costume shouldn't be worn, then it's time to pick something else to dress as. As a human race, I know we can do better than this.
