Is this Kim Kardashian outfit the most tasteless Halloween costume ever?

Freddy, Jason, killer clowns… when it comes to Halloween there’s no shortage of unpleasant clobber to choose from. This year though, has released perhaps the most tasteless of 2016 – a costume of Kim Kardashian being held hostage, just weeks after she was robbed at gunpoint of jewellery worth millions.

The costume – which was advertised as the "Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume Kit" – included a robe, a wig, sunglasses, a fake gag, two inches of rope and a fake "$4 million dollar" ring.

The item description read: "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 jewellery and her peace of mind. This Halloween have some fun with pop culture and dress just like the Queen of Social media." 

Needless to say, Kim K fans were unimpressed. 

The costume has been pulled from sale (though anyone could fashion their own with a bath robe, bit of bling, and a length of rope).

We'd have tried it ourselves, but we're a bit tied up this Halloween.
