It is too easy to make fun of Kim Kardashian.
She’s the celebrity who seemingly “did nothing” to gain millions of dedicated followers. The mother of two who was allegedly bound, gagged and dumped in a bathtub as masked men robbed her of her possessions and her sense of security.
It’s not. It’s sick. In fact, the only thing sicker would be to throw on a robe and a fake ring and gag yourself for the sake of a cheap laugh.
One company is encouraging its customers to do just that by promoting this costume in the leadup to Halloween.
The Sun reported Costumeish's $88 costume was inspired by the harrowing events of the reality star's Paris robbery.
The site does not explicitly refer to Kim Kardashian, but rather calls the woman depicted "America's goddess of all things glamorous".
Listen: Mamamia Out Loud has a public service announcement. Post continues below.
The accompanying description is borderline nauseating in how it recognises its parodying a victim of crime.
"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 jewellery and her peace of mind," the statement reads.
"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."
The site has since removed the costume from sale after receiving negative feedback. The company released a statement in regards to the take-down on their Twitter account.
"Due to the extensive out-lash we have decided to remove the 'Parisian Heist' costume from our website. We are sorry if it offended anyone," it read.
News of the costume cycled through social media channels to the disgust of users.
"Get mad about the Kim Kardashian being robbed Halloween costume because that stuff is sick and wrong and all kinds of gross," one user wrote on Twitter.
"I don't like Kim K... And even I think it's wrong," another user wrote.
There are many easier and more socially relevant costumes to create this Halloween. Trump? The plebiscite, risen from the dead? The election day sausage?
Nobody will care if you go as a sexy kitty, but you might genuinely upset somebody if you go as Kim.
Because she's not just an image on your Instagram - she's a person, a woman, a mother, a wife, a friend and a victim too.
