A new Donald Trump-themed Halloween costume is making activists so crazy that they have started a petition calling for Amazon to stop selling it.
According to reports, more than 500 people have already signed the petition for its removal from Amazon’s product line-up.
“The ‘costume’ advertised on Amazon’s website promotes this despicable xenophobia and is nothing more than a modernized version of a Ku Klux Klan robe. … The Latinx community will not sit idly by as companies like Amazon help to further normalize white supremacy,” wrote the petition’s creator, Jerónimo Saldaña, a member of the activist group Mijente.
In the past year, Amazon has reportedly pulled two other controversial costumes; one was a “sexy burka” and the other was a doormat with the word “Allah” printed on it.
Each year, Halloween costumes manage to offend segments of the population who subsequently demand that they are removed from stores.
