Halloween Costume Company Hits Peak Gross With ‘Cecil The Lion Killer’ Creation


Yesterday, it was a super-distasteful ‘I Am Cait’ Halloween costume doing the rounds; today, it’s ‘Cecil The Lion Killer’.
Yep, you can actually PAY for the joy of impersonating Dr. Walter Palmer, the dickhead dentist who was brought to his knees by the Internet after brutal killing Tanzania‘s most beloved fluffy-maned animal. 
Sold for US$59.99 on website costumeish.com, the sales pitch is thus:

“All Doctor Palmer wanted was to hang dead animals in his house, but what started as an obscure (if legally-dubious) hunting trip has since erupted into a brouhaha of trans-Atlantic proportions. 

2015’s most controversial killing has laid bare the rift in American and Zimbabwean attitudes toward exotic game hunting and animal conservation pitting an outraged mob against a Minnesotan dentist in a scandal sure to be remembered for a generation.

Our Cecil Lion Killer Dentist Costume features a severed lion’s head mask, bloody smock, and bloody gloves for a gruesome, complete look.”
A completely FUCKED UP look.
But it’s ok, you guys, because 15% of all proceeds from the costumes will go to a Wildlife Foundation (not The Wildlife Foundation, just a foundation. TBC.)
Costumish CEO Johnathon Weeks doesn’t get what the issue is.
He even defended the piece of shit move via TMZ, insisting the costume was created after the company was inundated with requests… yet it went live at midnight on Tuesday EDT, and not a single one has sold so far.
