Snowflakes, snowflakes

Amazon has sparked outrage by continuing to sell ‘racist’ and religiously offensive fancy dress costumes despite criticism from customers.
The online retail giant is offering a ‘traditional black burqa hood’, ‘Arab costume’ and Jesus garment as part of its selection of party outfits.
The ‘Arab’ tunic and headdress, with a ‘Palestine’ scarf, is modelled by a white man covered in what looks like face paint.

Meanwhile, Amazon is also selling a ‘naughty nun’ costume, ‘Orthodox Jewish Rabbi Fedora hat’, and ‘native Indian’ outfit.
There are also ‘French man’ and ‘Mexican bandit’ costumes, the latter of which has been criticised by customers on the retailer’s website.

One wrote: ‘Have you ever thought that wearing this kind of “costumes” might be -actually- racist?
‘Have you ever thought that making fun of people’s heritage and traditions might not be that funny? I have not seen kilts sold as “costumes”… How weird!’
Another left a one star review branding the outfit ‘racist’.

Amazingly, Amazon sells kilt costumes.

  1. Why does anybody pay attention to SJW cockrot. Do companies really believe that millions of customers and potential customers are influenced by middle-class Marxist scum?

  2. ‘continuing to sell ‘racist’ and religiously offensive fancy dress costumes despite criticism from customers.’

    One should see instantly that they are NOT customers.

  3. SadButMadLad is right, it’s just clickbait. The idiot opinions of a few SJW freaks don’t matter to anyone else, but by pretending to take them seriously the Daily Mail can manufacture a “shock horror” story out of nothing. In this case the meaningless non-story is based on Amazon reviews, but the newspapers use Twitter in this way all the time. It’s a way for them to fill space and attract clicks without all the tiresome effort of finding some real stories to report.

  4. SBML: the ‘Mail’ is merely following the trends of modern ‘journalism’ here. Blame the 24/7/365 ‘gotta print something!’ news cycle.

    It isn’t just the Mail. The BBC reports what someone said about someone else on Twitter as ‘news’.

    No, because it is a little hard for the sane to see how wearing or selling these costumes is in any way racist.

  7. Right now I am dealing with the ‘cultural appropriation’ fallout of my 2 1/2 twins being currently enamoured of the characters from the Disney movie Moana. My wife had to make up a quick grass skirt so that my daughter could be Moana. My son is constantly trying to draw on himself as he thinks he is the male tattooed character Maui. It would have been so much easier at bath time, if I would have been able to order one of these. http://variety.com/2016/film/news/disney-moana-costume-pulled-after-complaints-1201868097/.

    BTW, should I be taking offence to the fact that there is a Canadian character named “Moose” on the Fireman Sam cartoon series who speaks with a ‘funny accent’ and wears a lumberjack shirt?

  8. How do you reconcile “we’re all about the womynz” with “it’s racist to mock Stone Age barbarians who make their wives wear black pup tents on pain of death”? The logical inconsistency doesn’t stop there. Orwell defined doublethink as believing simultaneously in two contradictory things, but believing in seventeen contradictory things at once might explain why these people are so fucking mental.

  9. Hang on, what if *I* want to dress up as a naughty nun – and let’s face it, who doesn’t get these urges from time to time? Or as a harem slave girl? It is not my culture but it could be my sexual orientation if I felt like it.

    Who trumps whom? The racially aggrieved or the homosexually deluded?

  10. I have not seen kilts sold as “costumes”… How weird!’

    I wonder, if you pointed out that by their standard of what is racist, that the assumption that kilts are a ‘white person’ thing is just as racists as saying ‘black people like fried chicken’, would their heads explode?

    Sorry dear, this is what you’re limited to

    Anything else would be cultural appropriation.

  12. Aren’t we – and isn’t in fact everyone to the right of Arthur Scargill – now giving this tiny minority of what Ecks would (for once accurately) describe as “PC leftist CM scum” far too much attention and hence publicity?

    If we ignore them, if the likes of the Fail would stop manufacturing Outrage and Fury out of what they find on twitter, or Amazon product reviews, they would not grow in number.

    If you want to dress up as a “naughty nun” then you need to invent a new pronoun to describe yourself in your naughty nun form. That’s the way of political correctness, playing games with language while ignoring anything in the real world. Of course, that’s another reason why “political correctness” is just another term for “decadence”.
