Walmart Pulls 'Little Amigo' Halloween Costume After Racism Backlash!

Filed under: HalloweenHolidazeWalmartViral: NewsControversy

Wal-Mart is already facing backlash for a Halloween costume!

Halloween is JUST around the corner, and you know what that means! Lots and lots of super offensive costumes are coming!!

We've already seen our fair share of outrage with a Caitlyn Jenner costume, and of course who could possibly forget the "sexy" Donald Trump costume!

But now Walmart is getting in on the action as their website offered a child's costume that was simply called "Little Amigo!"

For just $12.99, customers would get a package that includes a sombrero and a fake mustache so they can "dress like [their] favorite amigo!"

It didn't take long for customers to call out Wal-Mart for selling a costume that plays on racial stereotypes, and the company responded by pulling the item from their website!

However, Wal-Mart isn't exactly taking responsibility for the blunder as reps claim it from a third-party seller and should have never ended up on the site in the first place!

Well we can at least all agree on that!

Seriously, when are companies going to realize costumes based on race are NEVER OK??? Besides, whatever happened to little kids just dressing up as Power Rangers for Halloween???

Barbie's New Book Gets SLAMMED By Parents Who Say It's Sexist! Find Out Why HERE!

Barbie is once again stirring up controversy, but this time it's because of a book!

At this point, we're not too surprised when we hear about a new Barbie toy rubbing parents the wrong way!

But when we heard her new book about her quest to become a computer engineer was stirring up controversy, we were a bit caught off guard!

At first glance, Barbie: I Can Be a Computer Engineer seems like a harmless story of Barbie exploring the world of computer engineering! In fact, it's downright empowering when you think about it!

The only issue is Barbie comes across a few obstacles along the way, and she's only able to fix them with a little help from her MALE friends!

Dave And Buster's Tweets, Deletes, & Apologizes After Sending Out An Offensive Message On Twitter!

Filed under: TwitterFoodGIFs

Dave and Buster's should stop tweeting for a little while!

In this day and age, social media sites like Twitter are a great way to connect with friends, reach new audiences, and keep in touch with current events!

Unfortunately, it's also a great way to say some seriously stupid and offensive things!

Just ask Dave and Buster's, the restaurant/bar/arcade that sent out a tweet in hopes to promote "Taco Tuesday!" Unfortunately, the tweet came out as this:

Macklemore Denies Dressing As A Jewish Stereotype, But We'll Let You Decide If His Costume Is Offensive Or Not!

macklemore jewish stereotype(1)

No, Macklemore. Just no.

Macklemore donned a costume that was pretty offensive in the fact that it was probably the most egregious Jewish stereotypes while performing Thrift Shop and Can't Hold Us on Friday at EMP’s Vivid event in Seattle.

Macklemore looked like a walking Jewish stereotype that would be likely to be found in the movie Borat.

Pop some tags? We're going to mop some gags…because we're practically vomiting on how gross this was.

What a totally inappropriate costume. You should know better, Macklemore.

But did Macklemore own up to his faux pas and apologize? Nope. He denied any wrong doing on Twitter:

Suuuuure. Whatever you say Macklemore. Riiiiiight.

To see a clip from his gross performance, ch-ch-check a short video of his performance…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
