Halloween costumes for gURLs have gotten a little bit ridiculous lately, with people trying to make literally anything into a “sexy” and revealing outfit for the holiday. But we think this anorexia-themed costume totally crosses the line.
Eating disorders are nothing to joke about, and this costume just seems to be making light of a really serious situation. The dress features a skeletal figure on it, along with some measuring tape around the waist as an accessory. And just to be sure you didn’t misunderstand what it was about, the costume is called ‘Anna Rexia’.
This costume has actually been around for a few years, but when a store called Ricky’s started selling it again recently, people immediately got offended. The store has since pulled the costume and apologized for upsetting people.
WDYT, gURLs? Are you totally offended by this costume? Or do you think this is just a funny joke? Have you or anyone close to you ever suffered from an eating disorder? Discuss below.
