I don’t wanna sound cliche, but Halloween is that “spooky” time of the year. Every single media item dons a “scary” outfit during October, and we all know the tradition of dressing up in some whimsical costume and then trick or treating around the neighborhood or having a party with lots of themed “spooky” alcoholic drinks.
These celebrities didn’t do a good job with their costumes, however. Even though Halloween is still some time away, don’t take advice from these celebrities for your costume this year. Check out the gallery of controversial costumes below:
1. Chris ‘terrorist’ Brown
Chris Brown decided to dress up like a terrorist for Rihanna’s Halloween party in 2012, after discovering he had limited options.
2. Ashley Benson AKA Cecil the lion
And guys everywhere said “what’s wrong with that?” whilst being blinded by the sexiest lion in recorded history.
3. Julianne Hough pulls her best black face.
In 2013 Julianne Hough dressed as Crazy Eyes from Orange Is the New Black with blackface and all. Not only did it upset quite a few people on Twitter, but it just looks… wrong…
4. Lily Allen is just what the doctor ordered.
Allen dressed up as a gynecologist in 2014 to mock Dr. Luke in the wake of Kesha’s sexual assault lawsuit on the producer.
5. Heidi Klum as the Goddess Kali
Heidi Klum has always gone a little bit wild when it comes to her costumes, but she may have offended a few Hindus when she dressed up like this in 2008.
6. Rihanna the weed bride.
Rihanna dressed up as Marijuana when she attended her own Halloween party in 2012, complete with a weed bouquet.
7. Deryck Whibley as his ex
You can’t get any more hardcore than this. Deryck Whibley and his girlfriend dressed up as his ex-wife Avril Lavigne and her husband Chad Kroeger.
8. Bill Maher as Steve Irwin
In a move of seriously bad taste, Bill Maher dressed up as Steve Irwin months after his death, stingray barb included.
9. Adrianne Curry as Amy Winehouse
Adrianne Curry dressed up as Amy Winehouse in a bid to make fun of her substance addiction. I can only imagine how bad she felt when Winehouse died two years later.
Snooki had an attack of exceptionally poor taste as she dressed as a missing girl on the back of a milk carton in 2010.
11. Khloe Kardashian and her puntastic costume
How punny is this: When Khloe Kardashian dressed up as a cat and Scott Disick as a sheik in 2014, she captioned the Instagram post with the costume as “sheik pussy”, which was followed with a lot of hate.
