Walmart Stops Selling Israeli Soldier Halloween Costume Because Muslims Offended
Walmart has caved to pressure and banned a ‘racist’ Israeli military Halloween costume because it is “anti-Arab”.
“The costumes — an oversize prosthetic hooked nose sold as the “Sheik Fagan Nose” and an Israeli military uniform intended for small children — were marked as anti-Arab by the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, which said on Twitter that it broached the matter with the retailer,” reports Time.
It appears as though the ban originated as a result of just one Twitter user – Nadeem Muaddi – being offended by the Israeli military uniform. This again illustrates how retailers are so quick to cave in to social media outrage when the best course of action is always to refuse to apologize or kowtow to the demands of the perpetually outraged.
