So why is it "insensitive" ??
Other dead people have costumes. (Abe Lincoln, Elvis, Micheal Jackson, etc.)

I say sell the Osama costume with some Navy Seal outfits.

Meh, just carry it over till Christmas for Jihad Santa!

I'm not clear why it's insensitive. It's funny.

Where's the problem? Get a Kardashian in one with bunk bed beards!

I'm only offended by the low quality. Tom Cruise has had more convincing beards.

What about Zombie Osama risen from the briny depths to feast on the living?

Did I just create a B movie plot?

DD are bearded, rich, and religious fanatics. Which is nothing like Bin Laden.

Insensitive? Not really.

Dumb? Yes, very much.

Profitable? Probably.

They also are most known for their desire to kill innocent flying creatures

I'm offended that they stopped selling them. What, now my feelings don't count?
 
2013-10-04 01:21:12 AM
Offensive if you buy a ham with it.

farkingismybusiness: I guess next you're going to tell me my HItler Halloween costume is offensive.


I do seem to remember a story about them selling a shirt with an SS totenkopf on it and possibly another with a line of clothing with a prominent 88 and other racist symbols on it. I expect the buyer probably didn't know what those meant at the time but I would hope that they should take the time to find out the meanings of what they are retailing.
 
2013-10-04 03:03:06 AM
Oh come on! They're making fun of Osama, not worshipping him! Is it wrong to turn an evil guy into a mascot to be ridiculed and used for fun? If you wanna be offended, then go find some site that praises Bin Laden's work, not something that belittles him into nothing but being a Halloween accessory!
 
2013-10-04 03:20:27 AM
They probably sell a George W. Bush costume, and he killed a hundred times more people than Osama.  But they were all brown, and brown people don't really count.  Well, we'll give 'em 3/5ths of a body count.  That's still more.

For the party that I went to on the first Halloween after 9/11/2001, there were so many bin Ladens that it was hard to keep count. One of them had a Ziploc baggie filled with flour with the label "ANTHRAX" on it (this was at the height of the anthrax mail scare.)
 
2013-10-04 03:50:05 AM
Wal-Mart is really sorry for selling this bin Laden Halloween costume doesn't actually care but took these bin Laden costumes off the shelves after too much profit was threatened by customers who threw a fit about them

Considering this happens every year, why do I get the feeling that they actually deliberately ask their suppliers, "Can you make one really offensive, so we can get a media fuss about it to cave in to immediately, but which means we remind everyone we stock Halloween costumes".

I dressed up as Ozombie bi Ladin a few years back. Even had a bullet hot in my forehead.

Wal*Mart customers don't like to be reminded who had Osama killed.
