  • I'm into blood, gore, and scary costumes in general.. but I agree with it being fully distasteful.

    Actual events, and silly scary movies are two complete different things.

  • That's extremely f*cked up. And people are mad because a couple high school coaches went as the Cool Runnings guys!?!?!

  • very distasteful. i don't find the humor in that, it wouldn't be much different than dressing up as a 9/11 victim or a Sandy Hook student. and i don't consider myself one to offend easily.

  • I think it's in poor taste, and shows the maturity level of the person wearing the 'costume'.
