Right now there is a big Brew-Ha-Ha stewing over an “Illegal Alien” Halloween Costume.
Immigrant rights activists are calling on U.S. retailers to stop selling two controversial “Illegal Alien” costumes that have surfaced for Halloween, saying the outfits are a broadside attack on illegal immigrants.
I thought that as an adult, everything about Halloween was intended to be a “broadside attack” against something. It’s what we do. It’s FUNNY.
ETA: I was never a victim of such an awful thing but I see where this can be really offensive to a lot of people. So why hasn’t it been pulled off the market? I think it’s much more offensive than the Illegal Alien.
So really, people. Lighten up! It’s Halloween.
I don’t go out of my way to offend people at all. I personally, would never wear any of these costumes, but I can certainly see the humor in them. Halloween is not about being politically correct. It’s about being wild and outrageous. Making a statement, whether it’s political or otherwise. Face it, there are a lot of people in this country that feel strongly about the illegal immigrant problem and this is them making a statement.
Soooo….what do you think? Offensive? Funny? Tacky? Do you think it’s a big deal or are the “PC” activists going a little crazy? I really want to know because I want to know if my friends also have a warped sense of humor like me.
