13 Cringeworthy Pop Culture Halloween Costumes

As we get ready for the Halloween season, we must all prepare for the cringeworthy costumes we are going to see. People are going to go out in blackface, because they’ll never learn how truly offensive it is. They’re also going to dress up as alleged sex offenders, like Jared the Subway Guy or Bill Cosby. And those are just the homemade costumes! Some of the most offensive costumes you’ll see this year at Halloween are actually sold in stores.

1

The dress that stormed the nation one night and had EVERYONE and their mother arguing about what color it was. We weren’t into the dress for the 2 days it was popular and we sure aren’t into it now.

So, the Cecil the Lion costume was clearly tacky. But a costume for the person that killed him? So cringeworthy, we can’t shake the yuck. What is probably the most offensive thing about this costume is the fact that it's $140.
