3. During the original controversy in 2011, the costume’s manufacturers, Dreamgirl, issued the following statement:
We understand that some people will not find the dark humor funny… Or that they are sensitive to the topic it addresses. We don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings and would never want to cause harm to anyone. Dreamgirl is a company run by women for women. Halloween is an eccentric and irreverent holiday for people to express themselves in a myriad of ways. While some people may not like a particular costume - it is a matter of taste and personal discretion.
