Party City is under scrutiny for their "Adult Wall Costume," which is basically a tunic with brick background and the words "The Wall," which resembles the iconic Pink Floyd album of the same name.
It started with a post from Jason Roseberg, a New York activist, who posted this comments on Twitter "If cultural appropriation on Halloween isn't for you, here's a directly racist costume straight from @PartyCity."
Many Twitter users believe that the costumes signifies President Trump's immigration policy and border wall proposal. Another user posted this comment “If I see anyone wearing a “The Wall” costume, fair warning, you’re getting punched. Like hard.”
Party City hasn't responded to the controversy. Their website describes the costume, which retails for $29.99, as follows: Use this Wall Costume for adults to create a unique Halloween look!
