Robbery Victim Kim Kardashian, And 11 Other Banned Halloween Costumes
Welp, you can no longer buy the Parisian Heist Robbery Victim costume online, but the company that makes it, Costumeish, has given Halloween inspiration to millions.
It's the costume that commemorates the robbery in which Kim Kardashian was bound and gagged in a Paris hotel room recently. Costumeish decided to pull their product after a "backlash" from customers. (Translation: they most likely got a cease-and-desist letter from Kardashian's lawyers).
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.

The company's founder, Jonathon Weeks, said that the costume was designed to provoke a strong reaction. He says he doesn't "want to make light of a serious situation. We're not mocking her."
Yet, here's how the site described the costume:
America's goddess of all things glamorous: 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 jewelry and her peace of mind.
Who's to say that you can't make your own costume that honors Kim Kardashian being bound and gagged during a robbery in Paris? It's nothing that we would endorse, mind you -- but I'd be surprised if I didn't see a few of these around on Oct. 31.
Meanwhile, Walmart has pulled its "Tranny Granny" Halloween costume after complaints from customers (see below). There have been several other costumes that were discontinued due to complaints, and you can see some of them in the slideshow below.
