Costumeish now sells the "Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume Kit" for US$69.99. It includes a "White Short Sexy Robe" and "Fake Gag."
Although the website doesn't actually name the celebrity, you just have to look at the costume's listing to see the inspiration behind it.
Outrage on social media
"She has devoted her life to promoting American decadence, youth, and hedonism but all that flashy living caught up with her one night in Paris when armed men bound her, stole her jewelry and her peace of mind," reads the item's description.
Johnathon Weeks, the website's founder and vice president, told TIME the costume is meant to be funny but added that he doesn't want to make light of a "serious situation."
“Halloween references pop culture and celebrities are no different. That’s Halloween,” he said.
The costume sparked outrage on social media, and many users described it as tasteless and offensive.
Who wants to out themselves as a human trash fire & try to explain why you think a "Kim Kardashian mid-robbery" Halloween costume is funny?

That Kim Kardashian 'gagged at gun point' Halloween costume is actually sick. Some extremely twisted people out there.

Kardashian said she was held at gunpoint, tied up and gagged during the Oct. 3 robbery at a Paris hotel. Police are still investigating the incident.
On Sunday a pendant was found near the scene of the robbery, according to NBC News. It's being examined by forensic investigators.
