18 Halloween Costumes That You Absolutely Should Not Wear This Year

As soon as the leaves begin change colors, there’s only one thing on most people’s minds: Halloween.

It’s that time of the year where it’s socially acceptable to dress up in creative costumes and go from house to house begging complete strangers for candy. But nothing ruins the tricks and treats quite like an outrageously offensive costume. While it may be funny or creative in your mind, doesn’t mean the same holds true for everyone around you.

So to help ensure everyone around you has an epic time, here are 18 offensive Halloween costumes to steer clear of this year.

1. Uh…that doesn’t seem right.

2. That’s a little dark, don’t you think?

3. Marketed as a “WWII surviver costume,” let’s call it what it really is — a weak attempt to make light of a terrible situation. Let’s not disrespect Anne Frank, okay?

7. Turning a news story into a costume is almost always a horrible idea…especially when it involves blackface and domestic abuse.

17. I’m going to ignore everything else problematic with this costume and ask the question on my mind: is she biting her baby?
