    This has been on the radio the last two mornings driving into work. I can't decide whether I think the complaint is warranted or if it's totally being blown out of proportion. Voyeurism isn't just a crime against women though.

    I definitely wouldn't want to open my curtains and see this staring back at me though, I know that much.

    This is just someone complaining for the sake of complaining. Murderous costumes are ultra-realistic, and guess what, women get murdered. Should those all be banned for sale at Halloween too. That woman needs to fuck off.

    Don't be mad because you are going lose out on licensing fees for using your likeness.

    Nothing like a ban to spike demand.

    This cracks me up, I can go walk down any Halloween aisle and find something way more offensive than this thing. I bet she complained over social media, seems to be a popular spot for drama queens.

    I find the waxy face unsettling, but I'm pretty sure that's the point of a lot of Halloween decorations. I don't think it's so offensive that I'd kick up a stink over it.

    people love to feel important. Complaining about something is usually the only thing they have.

    Totally, the person is probably super proud they were able to get this removed from the store

    I am guessing she does not work, lives off the system, feels entitled to everything and thinks everyone is out to get her.

    It would be hilarious to get your hands on a dozen of those things and put them in a bunch of that lady's windows.

    I'd love to stick one on my sister in law's window. She's super paranoid and easily spooked. If she's home alone during the day, she locks all the doors and closes and latches all the windows :lol:
