Amazon and eBay Think It’s Perfectly OK To Sell This Racist ‘Chinese Boy’ Costume



Earlier today, Twitter user  called out Amazon UK on Twitter for the following costume that was for sale.

The costume depicts a Caucasian boy in a stereotypical Asian outfit. However, what’s most grating about it is the racist “squinty eye” gesture the boy is making in the photo. This gesture has been used to mock people of Asian descent for decades.

However, what was most disturbing is that after researching on our end, we found that the product was available for sale not just on Amazon UK, but Denmark, France, and Italy as well.
