Ebola is bad news. I mean, it’s only a deadly virus that’s killed more than 3,000 people in West Africa and infected thousands more.
We’re only in the midst of the largest outbreak of the hemorrhagic fever in history. Ever.
And it’s only like, one of the most contagious viruses we’re dealing with.
So by all means, let’s make light of the situation by dressing up in old Breaking Bad costumes on Halloween and parade around screaming “EBOLA!” That, I’m sure, will help us deal with the reality of the situation.
Actually, let’s put the sarcasm aside. Don’t be an idiot. Forego the terrible costume, stop making a mockery of the virus, and dress up as a ghost for Halloween. What happened to good, old-fashioned ghosts? Or, like, a pumpkin or something.
Oh. Don’t go in blackface, in a sombrero, as a geisha, or any of these. And let’s maybe not visit the site selling these terrible costumes. I mean, this is the same company that intends on making an ISIS toddler costume, and already has a cigarette baby costume.
So fuck them. And fuck these tasteless hazmat suits. We can find something else to do with the $79.99.
