Cancel Halloween, Someone Is Selling​ a "Sexy" Melania Trump Costume


Because apparently it's impossible to get through even one Halloween without a company selling an insensitive/sexist/racist costume, someone has taken it upon themselves to make a "sexy Melania Trump costume" that literally no one asked for.

The costume (dubbed "Model Wife") is just under $70, and is clearly modeled on Melania's Inauguration dress by Ralph Lauren. It's even paired with gloves.

First of all, sexualizing the First Lady is completely gross. She is not an object to be turned into a costume. But also, dressing up as Melania Trump trivializes and makes a joke out of the horrible things her husband has said and done—the least of which are his comments objectifying women. This costume is indicative of a much larger cultural problem, and it's just not a good look.

For more Halloween nopes, head this way.
