    This is so much bullshit. Seriously, it's not like it comes with a choice between a Cuban and a Mexican mask. FFS, it's called satire. Apparently we've all become over-sensitive dumbasses in this country.

    The other side of it, so to speak

    And more.

    Freedom of speech inevitably leads to somebody taking offense; people need to learn to live with that.

    I can agree with the distasteful comment. But it shouldn't be yanked from stores. It's not illegal (I am aware of the pun lol) nor is it intending to offend. People just need to lighten up.

    I don't see where it's distasteful at all. If anything, it's reminding me of MIB, what with the intergalactic immigration and whatnot. Besides, it's more poking fun at the people that poke fun at illegal immigrants, not the actual immigrants.

    It's kitschy satire. People need to stop taking things so seriously.

    I've been saying that all day since I saw it. I just have to get together the necessary 30 dollars and track one down.

    These costumes are an affront to all the Wookiees out there attempting to flee Imperial persecution and lives of slavery.
