HALLOWEEN RETAILER FOLDS TO LGBT PRESSURE, PULLS ‘CAITYLN JENNER’ COSTUME

Halloween retailer Spirit Halloween, which previously defended its decision to sell a costume inspired by Bruce Jenner’s gender transition, caved to pressure from LGBT groups, and pulled the costume from its website Wednesday.

The “Call Me Caitlyn Unisex Adult Costume,” which satirizes the former Olympian’s likeness, as seen on the cover of the July issue of Vanity Fair, sparked outrage online Tuesday, with Twitter users and LGBT advocates describing it as “transphobic.”

Some of those upset by the costume also made violent threats toward anyone considering going as the transgender TV star.

Just put on a woman's dress, and carry a jar with a couple of golf balls in it.

"It" will be charged with manslaughter in the traffic accident soon.

When "it" gets to prison, "she" will become someone's "Girlfriend"!

Kill one of God's creatures and try to hide behind a sex-change....and still get caught - that's KARMA!

Not KARMA CHAMELEON!
