Kim Kardashian bound and gagged Halloween costume pulled


An online retailer has pulled a Halloween costume that made light of Kim Kardashian's recent jewellery heist.

Time reports that the listing for the Parisian Heist costume on Costumeish featured a bound and gagged Kim lookalike, dressed in a white robe and sporting a giant ring.

The listing didn't include Kim's name.

The costume was being sold for nearly $70 (£57).

The company's founder, Jonathon Weeks, told Time that the costume was designed to provoke a strong reaction.

He said he didn't "want to make light of a serious situation", adding that they are not mocking her.

The costume prompted outrage from some social media users.

The company's Twitter account announced on Tuesday that the costume had been pulled and apologised if it "offended anyone".
