Halloween season is here, and that means it’s time for stores to start rolling out their DUMB and sometimes totally inappropriate costumes. And here’s the first one of the season . . .
A website called Yandy.com that sells Halloween costumes, lingerie, and Halloween costumes that are basically lingerie, just introduced a sexy costume based off the outfits from the Hulu TV show “The Handmaid’s Tale”.
If you haven’t seen the show, it’s about the scariest possible direction a misogynistic culture could go. Women are forced to wear specific outfits and have sex with powerful men.
So to turn those outfits into a sexy costume is a pretty massive disconnect.
Yandy was selling it for $65, including a short red dress, a red cape, and a white bonnet . . . but after a day of SOCIAL MEDIA OUTRAGE, they pulled it off their site last night.
