Transphobic Halloween costume was not deleted from Amazon


The outfit, which is still being sold on Amazon, shows a bearded person wearing a wig and the Olympic number 935. This is a number Caitlyn Jenner had when she won her Olympic medals, long before coming out as a transgender woman. he £26 costume, produced by Costume Agent, is listed on Amazon as: “Bruce Caitlyn Jenner Olympian I Am Cait Adult Costume,” while the product description states: “Show your love for Caitlyn Jenner with this awesome adult costume!” Trans activists, mildly speaking, doubt, whether using Caitlyn’s former name and representing her as a bearded man in a wig could be considered as a sign of love to her. The outfit was previously listed on Ebay, but Ebay took it down amid the backlash, thus Amazon refuses to do it. Amazon declined to comment. A spokesperson for the company, which has a perfect score on the Human Right Campaign’s Equality Index, only claimed that they are pro-equality and pro-diversity.
