People Are Furious About This Kim Kardashian Being Robbed Halloween Costume

"You should be ashamed of yourselves you sick f*cks."

On Oct. 2, Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room. According to the Associated Press, masked robbers stole more than $10 million worth of jewelry while she was tied up and locked inside a bathroom.

Just a week after the robbery, California-based costume company Costumeish created a "Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume Kit" based off of Kim's real-life scare.

The $69.99 costume doesn't name Kim directly, but the description says, "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. This Halloween have some fun with pop culture and dress just like the Queen of Social media."

The costume even makes reference to her $4 million ring and describes the short white robe as "sexy."

Some of the costume reviews call the item "trashy" and "pathetic."

“I’m sad that people are offended by it, but it is Halloween: It’s one day out of the year," Costumeish Vice President Johnathon Weeks told BuzzFeed. "Halloween should be a light-hearted, spirited party and people should be able to laugh at it and think it’s funny. We haven’t sold any yet, if that matters."

“If people find it tasteless or they are offended by it, it’s Halloween,” Weeks said. "Maybe you should just shut your life out and not go outside.”
