This horrifically creepy Halloween decoration has been removed from Home Depot stores in Canada after customer complaints.
It’s health and safety gone mad. Since when is anything too scary for Halloween?
The Scary Peeper mask is the ultimate scary prank but it will set you back an insane $49.99…I would rather just pay someone a tenner to stand there looking creepy.
According to the Metro, one customer complained that it was “inappropriate and makes light of a real-life, sinister issue that women face in our society.”
Here’s a video of the prank in action:
Teacher and mum Breanne Hunt-Wells told CBC:
It makes light of a very serious crime. Voyeurism is a crime in Canada.
Home Depot reacted by immediately removing the mask from sale and issuing an apology saying:
We agree that this is not in line with our core values, and when we heard, took immediate action and are currently in the process of removing this product from our assortment,
We’ve reached out to advise the customer of our actions and apologise. We’re sorry for any offence that was caused.
The masks are still sold online for those of you who do dress scarily at Halloween as opposed to the Mean Girls cop out!
