Controversy has broken out over a couple of new Halloween costumes.

Earlier this week, we took note of a Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume and those who take major exception to stores looking to profit over one person’s very real, very personal life decision.

Cecil the Lion Killer Halloween Costume

Now, it’s time for a debate over another potential outfit one can wear to go trick-or-treating on October 31, as Costumeish is offering a Walter Palmer costume.

You remember Walter Palmer, right? The dentist who met national scorn after illegally hunting and murdering a lion named Cecil in Africa?

The costume above retails for $59.99, which may be the most offensive part to this.

According to the description on the official website:

All Doctor Palmer wanted was to hang dead animals in his house, but what started as an obscure (if legally-dubious) hunting trip has since erupted into a brouhaha of trans-Atlantic proportions.

2015’s most controversial killing has laid bare the rift in American and Zimbabwean attitudes toward exotic game hunting and animal conservation pitting an outraged mob against a Minnesotan dentist in a scandal sure to be remembered for a generation.

Before deciding whether this is funny or foul, consider:

Johnathon Weeks, CEO of Costumeish, tells TMZ that will be donating 15 percent of the costume’s sales to the African Wildlife Foundation.
