Offensive Kim Kardashian robbery costume pulled from site


The distasteful Halloween costume based on Kim Kardashian's Paris robbery has been pulled from sale after it sparked severe outrage worldwide.


Costumeish founder Johnathon Weeks says the backlash was so severe by Tuesday afternoon, it became clear the Parisian Robbery Victim costume wasn't gonna fly. He has yanked it from his
website.

This comes after the site reportedly initially refused to remove the item, but now has agreed to also refund the six people who had bought the costume.

TMZ reports that Weeks says this is the first time they've removed a costume from their online store -- and there have been plenty of borderline tasteless options in the past, including Cecil the Lion and crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford.
