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’.
