Lion Lives Matter. You absolutely can’t pretend to be Cecil The Lion for Halloween without getting ripped a new one on social media.
“Help! Can’t decide on my Halloween costume this year! What do you guys think of this cecil the lion costume? @yandy #thanksyandy #halloweencostume.”
If you don’t know, Cecil was a prized African lion poached and killed by a tourist dentist this summer. The act incited a massive amount of hatred and online discussion. That didn’t stop costume creators from trying to make bank off the incident, however.
Ashley felt the wrath of #WhiteInstagram, animals lovers, and like-minds, saying things like, ”It’s a shame lions can’t wear dead ignorant humans as costumes. Totally unaware douche.” Another person went off: “You’re actually a f*cking idiot. Yay let me dress up as a horribly murdered animal and make it sexy! That’s so cute! Get a f*cking clue you idiot.”
Ashley edited her caption, but left the picture up. It’s totally OK to bully a human being, but not OK to dress up like a dead lion? What do you think?
