Following a yearly trend of offensive Halloween costumes, a costume company is now selling an outfit based on Kim Kardashian’s Paris robbery, where she was bound and forced into a bathtub.

Costumeish, which was called out just last year for its “foxy Megyn’s bloody tampon” costume, received immediate backlash for promoting the violent incident.

The costume’s description does not make a direct reference to Kardashian, instead passively describing the subject as someone who has “devoted her life to promoting American decadence, youth, and hedonism.”

Nonetheless, people were able to make the connection and voice their opinions. Out of 63 reviews on the site, the costume is rated an average 2.5 stars out of 5 as of Tuesday morning.

One reviewer gave the costume one star and said “People who think this is funny should be ashamed of themselves whether you like or hate the Kardashians.”

Another reviewer agreed, saying “I’m not a fan of Kim Kardashian but this is disgusting. The situation Kim was in shouldn’t be a joke to you or anybody.”

The response on social media wasn’t much better.

“That Kim Kardashian ‘gagged at gun point’ Halloween costume is actually sick. Some extremely twisted people out there,” tweeted Olivia Barraclough.

Of course, there are those who saw the costume as “hilarious & fun,” “creative” and even the “costume of the year.”

CNN reached out to Costumeish for comment, but the California-based company was not yet open.
