Another Halloween, another inappropriate costume.
Amazon has been forced to remove a "sexy" burka costume sold in the United Kingdom after it prompted furious comments from people who called the costume “racist” and slammed it as "Islamophobic."
The "sexy Saudi burka Islamic costume" was advertised as being "made from a lovely soft stretch material" complete with a full-face veil, according to the Daily Mail.
One user left a one-star rating with the comment, "You are all disgusting racists. My culture is not your costume," according to the Daily Mail.
People are also upset over an "Arab" costume modeled by a white man with darkened faces.
After the backlash, Amazon released a statement to Metro UK saying, (external - login to view) “All Marketplace sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who don’t will be subject to action including potential removal of their account."
While this particular costume has been removed, other sexy burka costumes are still available on the site.

Brits are retarded.

As is evidenced by the fact they think that's a burqa.

If the Brits are retarded for thinking that's a burqa, then the muzzies who whined about it must be incredibly f*cking retarded.

Those Muzzies are probably Brits. And when one says "Brits are retarded," one is including all subsets of Brits within the set of Brits.

Muslims don't have a patent on the Burqa. This applies to the hijab too. I've heard of cases in France where Muslims object to a non-Muslim wearing a hijab.

So because somebody gave the item a 1 star rating they removed it? Wimps.

It was probably a safety concern. Amazon doesn't want anybody walking in and shooting up the place.

Amazon is one of the few places that doesn't have to worry about that.

Now that they have folded you are probably right. All they want is submission... and Amazon submitted.

I mean Amazon is online only. Not much way to send a shooter over the internet.

You think Amazon doesn't have physical facilities?

I was thinking of retail facilities not server rooms or office.

No matter... Amazon has submitted and their many buildings and offices across the globe should be free of mass shootings or bombings.
