It's almost Halloween, so you know what that means! It's only a matter of days until we see which famous people are racist cultural appropriators or otherwise offensive "jokesters."
Let's not forget when Julianne Hough donned blackface or Paul Hollywood thought it was a good idea to go as a Nazi officer, complete with a swastika armband.
What a magical s***show Halloween is! And now, one costume company is getting into the offensive kids' getup game with an Anne Frank outfit. A good rule of thumb for Halloween is to dress up as anything in the world that isn't related to Nazis or the Holocaust. There are a lot of things that don't have to do with the Holocaust. Pick one.
HalloweenCostumes.com went full problematic when it tried to sell this "WW2 Anne Frank Girls Costume."
Yeah this seems super uncool. You seen this @carlosgeADL ? https://t.co/uhKS3g9b2J— Jerod MacDonald-Evoy (@Jerod MacDonald-Evoy)1508110822.0
"What. The. Actual. Eff?" this Twitter user asked when she came across the Anne Frank Girls Costume in her search.

Carlos Galindo-Elvira, the regional director for the Anti-Defamation League of Arizona responded to the costume with this succinct message:
@JerodMacEvoy There r better ways 2 commemorate Anne Frank. This is not one. We should not trivialize her memory as a costume.— CarlosgeADL (@CarlosgeADL)1508113865.0
When the Anne Frank costume was advertised across the pond, this Twitter user responded that it's likely not actually an Anne Frank costume.
@Noam25 @AnneFrankCenter I don't know which idiot wrote Anne Frank on it but it's clearly a british evacuee costume… https://t.co/yU9yQWWyUr— Vicky (@Vicky)1508226226.0
