(New York Post) -- Halloween was another diplomatic disaster for Walmart.
The retail giant got blasted Friday for selling a costume called the “Pashtun Papa” (right) — a mock-up of traditional Afghan robes and turban, coupled with a big, fake silver beard.
“Whether you’re making a serious political statement or staging a polical [sic] parody, this authentic-looking outfit is sure to fit the bill!” the outfit’s description on the store’s Web site read.
“Nothing is sacred this Halloween,” the blurb continued. “Shock your friends with this Islamic costume.”
Walmart removed the offensive outfit later in the day after it sparked an uproar online.
