A Halloween costume clearly designed to replicate Kim Kardashian’s armed robbery in Paris is causing quite a commotion.
A costume company called Costumeish is selling the “Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume Kit,” which includes a “white short sexy robe,” a black wig, a large fake ring, fake gag and two feet of rope. The entire kit is going for $69.99 on the site.
The “Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s” star is not named on the site, but it is evident in the description and photo who the costume is meant to represent. (RELATED: Kim Kardashian Held At Gunpoint And Robbed In Paris)

The costume has been met with heavy criticism and outrage, with some even referring to the outfit as misogynistic. However, Costumeish has “no intentions of taking it down and it has been selling well,” according to FOX News.

“Our deepest sympathy to the family and nobody deserves to go [through] what she did,” a Costumeish rep said referring to Kardashian. “We are not mocking her, however, Halloween reflects pop culture and celebrities are no different.”
