So a 'sexy Handmaid's Tale' Halloween costume exists, and please send help

Nope.

Ladies, every year we are faced with at least one outrageously inappropriate and weird Halloween costume.

Last year, we had the 'Fake News' dress, which was weird.

However, this year's most controversial costume? A sexy Handmaid's Tale get up.

No, we're not joking.

The costume was brought out by Yandy, an online store famous for their sexy little numbers.

The “Brave Red Maiden” costume has a hooded cloak, a white bonnet, and a red mini dress, meant to look like a Handmaid... but “sexier.”

“An upsetting dystopian future has emerged where women no longer have a say,” the costume description says.

“However, we say be bold and speak your mind in this exclusive Brave Red Maiden costume.”

HELP.

In a twist, the costume has actually been removed from the website as of a few hours ago.

The site released a statement, following the backlash it received from the outfit.

"Yandy always has stood, and will continue to stand, at the forefront of encouraging our customers to 'Own Your Sexy'.'

"We support our customers being comfortable in their skin, regardless of who they are or what they choose to wear. Our corporate ideology is rooted in female empowerment, and gender empowerment overall."

"Over the last few hours, it has become obvious that our 'Yandy Brave Red Maiden Costume' is being seen as a symbol of women's oppression, rather than an expression of women's empowerment."

"This is unfortunate, as it was not our intention on any level. Our initial inspiration to create the piece was through witnessing its use in recent months as a powerful protest image."

"Given the sincere, heartfelt response, supported by numerous personal stories we've received, we are removing the costume from our site."

You did the right thing lads, let's all stick to putting sheets over us and dressing up as ghosts.
