Terrorism, Ebola fears and domestic violence in sports have brought out the worst in Halloween revelers, with costumes taking bad taste to frightening lows and even causing potential national security issues, according to one expert.
One retailer, BrandsOnSale, is selling various controversial costumes this year, including an Ebola hazmat suit -- equipped with a breathing mask and face shield -- as well as a "baby pot" outfit and severed heads.
"The deadly Ebola virus has landed in the United States and the crisis has reached new levels of domestic escalation. You are sure to be prepared if any outbreak happens at your Halloween party. This will literally be the most 'viral' costume of the year," reads the company's online advertisement for a $79.99 Ebola suit.
