Kmart pull child bride costume from shelves following petition


Australian Kmart, which has no relation to the Kmart in the United States, has been forced to pull a child bride Halloween costume off their shelves after over 500 people signed an online petition saying that the costume normalized human trafficking. 

The petition, started by Shannon B., read: 

"A child bride costume currently exists on Kmart shelves in children’s sizes. Tell Kmart this is beyond inappropriate and offensive and that they have a social responsibility to pull this item off their shelves immediately."
