Halloween is a time for three things:
For kids to dress in some kind of adorable outfit.
For women to turn the most benign of costumes into the skankiest of costumes.
For celebrities to cross certain lines with their controversial costume ideas.
With the third point in mind, we present 14 especially scandalous celebrity Halloween costumes over recent years:
Tomi Lahren as...The Flag?
Tomi Lahren thinks she's being all Patriotic with this photo. But she's really in violation of the flag code.
Snooki as a Missing Child
It may sort of seem like a silly concept, but milk cartons are actually used sometimes to alert people to missing children. Not exactly something one should mock, Snooki.
Julianne Hough as Crazy Eyes
Julianne Hough going as a character from Orange is the New Black was a funny idea. She just should have avoided the whole blackface thing.
Chris Brown as a Terrorist
Chris Brown went as a member of the Taliban in 2012. We were impressed he managed to dress up as the one type of person more hated than he is.
Bill Maher as Steve Irwin
In 2006, mere months after the death of Steve Irwin, Bill Maher dressed as a "dead" version of the crocodile hunter. His outfit included a bloody stinger stinking out of his chest.
Adrianne Curry as Amy Winehouse
Adrianne Curry dressed as Amy Winehouse in 2009. The costume included a beehive wig and a fake hypodermic needle sticking out of her arm. Yikes!
