Target was recently forced to delete an “Illegal Alien” costume from its online catalogue. And, yes, it’s what you think it is. The costume came equipped with an alien mask, green card and orange jumpsuit with “Illegal Alien” emblazoned across the chest.
Angelica Salas, executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles was just one of the consumers who shot an angry email to Target HQ, labeliing the costume “distasteful” and “mean-spirited”.
The retail giant claims that it never intended to sell the item…just a big old mix-up. Pretty big boo-b00, if you ask me.
