Sexy Handmaid’s Tale Halloween Costume Pulled After Backlash

More like “under his brown eye.” Right gents? I don’t know what that means. What I do know is that Elisabeth Moss’ frumpy dumpy and grumpy brainwashed Scientologist ass somehow made the Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale worse than it would have inevitably been without her. A show about a dystopian world in which America’s future hinges on the sexual enslavement of women. Fun.

What the series always needed was more leg, and thanks to the brain trust over at Yandy – one of the companies responsible for annual tone-deaf Halloween costume viral stories – we now know what that would have looked like. Yandy released, then quickly pulled, a sexy Handmaid’s Tale costume, and described the getup on their website with:

An upsetting dystopian future has emerged where women no longer have a say. However, we say be bold and speak your mind in this exclusive Brave Red Maiden costume.

Praise be. Even though the show is basically torture porn, people had a problem with the whorey costume, and after it was pulled, Yandy stated:

Over the last few hours, it has become obvious that our “Yandy Brave Red Maiden Costume” is being seen as a symbol of women’s oppression, rather than an expression of women’s empowerment. This is unfortunate, as it was not our intention on any level.

And added:

Our initial inspiration to create the piece was through witnessing its use in recent months as a powerful protest image.

This is some meta shit. What other controversial sexy Halloween costumes await us in 2018? This is nothing. I won’t be happy until we have Sexy Crying Girl At Border.
