Controversial Kim Kardashian West Robbery Halloween Costume Pulled

Earlier this week, California-based retailer Costumeish made headlines with its “Parisian Heist” costume. The $70 costume was meant to look like Kim Kardashian West when she was reportedly robbed at gunpoint earlier this month in her Paris hotel room. The robbers apparently took jewelry from Kardashian West valued at more than $10 million.

The costume included a white robe, a gag, a replica of the stolen diamond ring and rope. The look caused widespread backlash — although it did amuse some — with many commenting on the Costumeish website that they thought it was “disgusting.”

User Lisa Jacob wrote, “This is the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen. How dare you make a mockery of a horrible thing.” Many echoed that sentiment.

Today, the company issued a statement on Twitter announcing that it has decided to remove the costume from its site.


Costumeish doesn’t seem to be afraid of striking a nerve with customers. Another Halloween option on its site is “Donald the Wall Builder,” referring to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s controversial idea to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.


Since the robbery in Paris, some of Kardashian West’s family members have spoken out, including Khloé Kardashian, who told Ellen Degeneres that Kardashian West is “not doing that well.”
