Woman Actually Dresses as Boston Marathon Bombing Victim for Halloween

Halloween may be over. But the consternation over certain costume ideas may last forever.

First, there were the two morons who dressed up like Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman, bloody hooded sweatshirt included.

Then, there were these Asiana Airlines pilot costumes, as trick-or-treaters mocked the plane crash that killed two passengers in July.

But we now appear to have a winner for Most Offensive Costume in the History of Mankind: A young woman from Michigan posted a photo online of herself decked out like a victim of April's Boston Marathon bombing.

Really. We wish we were making this up:

Boston Marathon Victim Costume

The idiot in question has been identified as 22-year-old Alicia Ann Lynch, but it's hard to blame one Twitter user for referring to Alicia as "@someSKANKinMI," isn't it?

Vote now: is this the most insensitive costume you've ever seen?

UPDATE: Lynch has apologized and asked people to end their death threats.
