When you’re stumbling home from the bar this Halloween, don’t be surprised if you see a few Caitlyn Jenner’s.
Social media mavens have been all over several Halloween stores for selling Jenner costumes, and at least one Halloween retailer has claimed that the costume is the perfect one this Halloween.
“At Spirit Halloween, we create a wide range of costumes that are often based upon celebrities, public figures, heroes and superheroes,” Lisa Barr of Spirit Halloween told MSNBC.
“We feel that Caitlyn Jenner is all of the above and that she should be celebrated. The Caitlyn Jenner costume reflects just that.”
Shortly after the news of Spirit’s decision, a Change.org petition began to circulate asking them to rethink their decision.
“If you follow through with production of a Caitlyn Jenner costume, cisgender people will purchase it to make fun of her and our community,” the petition states.
“At a time when trans women and GNC folx, especially black trans women, are being murdered at such a high rate, and homelessness, unemployment, and inaccessibility to healthcare run rampant in our community, making fun of one or all of us is utterly insensitive and deplorable.”
While many on social media have blasted the costume, the overall reaction has been quite mixed.
