So, what do you want to be for Halloween? A slutty version of the mental disease with the highest mortality rate? Yeah? Wrong. Nobody should want to be that. And the fact that the costume exists is just disturbing.
Everyone, meet "Anna Rexia." And if you're wondering, yes, that belt AND choker is made of measuring tape.
Critics say the costume makes a joke out of a deadly eating disorder. According to the National Eating Disorders Association, anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. Up to 10 million females and one million males in the U.S. suffer from diseases such as bulimia and anorexia nervosa.
It's actually been available since 2007, and some places have even been selling out of the costume.
Really, ladies? Really?
Oh, and in case you weren't horrified enough, check out this description from an online retailer:
"If Anna Rexia doesn't want to put it in her mouth there is nothing you can say to change her mind. You can stop trying to sell her on the point that there aren't any carbs and it's all protein because Anna Rexia just doesn't want anything to do with it. Make no bones about it this girl is as disciplined as they can get. Anna Rexia costume is anything but bare bones! Costume includes headband, choker neckband, removable ‘Anna Rexia’ badge and ribbon tie belt. If you're starving for attention, this costume will be sure to put you on top of the world."
We don't even know what to say anymore.
