Almost two weeks out from Halloween, and we already have a front-runner for biggest dumbass in most dumbass costume. Here we have a dude cosplaying the domestic violence case that rocked the NFL (for a while, anyway), by dressing as Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and dragging around a blow-up doll meant to be Janay Rice. I hate everything.
I can't imagine the thought process that went into this costume. I actually cannot visualize some dude thinking, 'Hey, wouldn't it be fucking hilarious if I showed up as a dude who knocked his fiancée unconscious and dragged her out of an elevator into a hotel lobby with no shame, who initially got a 2-game suspension and nearly got away with pinning the blame on her?' It must have been a lot of responsibility for this super committed dude to make sure the blow up doll meant to be Janay Rice was face-down the entire time and that the dress on the blow up doll was always above the waist. You know. For accuracy.
Being topical for Halloween is great and everything, but pro tip: have perhaps a shred of decency. But if decency just isn't your thing, then dammit, just stick to Ninja Turtles or pirates or something popular and boring. OR JUST DON'T DO HALLOWEEN. It would save us all a whole lot of anger and time.
