The reported robbery of Kim Kardashian West in her Paris hotel room on Oct. 3 has been dominating headlines since it happened.
Now, California-based Halloween costume company Costumeish is capitalizing on the buzz with a “Parisian Heist Robbery Victim” costume kit. A few find it funny, while most see it as tasteless.
The costume retails for $70 and includes a white robe, a long black wig, large black sunglasses, a fake gag, a replica of the stolen ring and rope. According to reports, the robbers stole more than $10 million in jewelry from Kardashian West while she was bound and gagged.
Comments on the product page for the costume range from “amazing” to “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.” Sarah, another user, wrote, “This is absolutely disgusting! She is a wife, a mother, a sister, and most importantly a human being. Yes, Halloween is a time to dress up and have fun but not at the expense of another person’s tragedy.”
George Sampson wrote, “Finally something for all of us who are sick of having a certain family pushed forcefully down our throats. Iconic.”
Many on Twitter are writing that it will “always be too soon” for this costume.
