There’s plenty of material to unpack as people both continue to make spooky slip-ups and find new ways to offend people with their timely costume choices.

Costume condemnation has also struck celebrities over the years prompting those now all-too-familiar Instagram apology posts.
So sit back, eat your Fun Size Snickers, and marvel at 10 outrageous Halloween costumes that have struck fear into the hearts of the offended.
