Ashley Benson is considering going as Cecil the Lion for Halloween, and she outraged the Internet when she shared a photo of her costume idea Tuesday.
The “Pretty Little Liars” actress originally captioned this photo, “Help! Can’t decide on my Halloween costume this year!” What do you guys thing of this Cecil the Lion costume?”
She quickly changed it when she realized what she’d done.
“Help! Can’t decide on my Halloween costume this year! What do you guys think of this lion costume?”
But it was already too late. The Internet was furious with her. (RELATED: The Internet Is Going Crazy Over This Sexy Donald Trump Costume)
“Disgusting,” one commenter wrote. “Just shows how celebrities are brainless. Seriously fuck you piece of shit.”
“How dare you make fun of a lion who innocently died from a inhuman act!”
But some people defended Benson and said that the critics were being too sensitive. (RELATED: Caitlyn Jenner Says ‘Transphobic’ Halloween Costume Isn’t Offensive)
