Genius Idea: Disney Ditches Maui Costume Due to Cries of Racism

A devil, Trump supporter, and witch.Oh the horror!Just in time for tots and tramps to pick their Halloween getup, while obviously a Donald Trump costume will get you banned from most campuses, the award for most controversial costume of 2016 belongs to Disney.

Yes, social justice warriors have apparently lost their shit over a Maui demigod costume, since clearly there can be no other god but Saul Alinsky.

A costume depicting a character from their upcoming film Moana about a mythological Polynesian hero was said to promote, “Polyface.”

No, not Polyester face (although it does look fairly flammable), but Polynesian face. Yes, that apparently now is a thing, and yes, you must be ultra-uber-racist to doubt us.

Cue outrage.

After the tweets of 140 characters on cultural appropriation started rolling in, Disney Corp. quickly made the following statement, “The team behind ‘Moana’ has taken great care to respect the cultures of the Pacific Islands that inspired the film, and we regret that the Maui costume has offended some. We sincerely apologize and are pulling the costume from our website and stores.”

It should also be noted that Disney will no longer offer Beast or Genie costumes as clearly they’re offensive to New Jerseyites and Barbara Eden.

Genius!
