Demand Walmart to stop selling racially insensitive Halloween costumes

This petition made change with 518 supporters!


Walmart is producing and selling Halloween costumes that are discriminating towards Arabs. The product, "Shiek Fagin Nose" is blatantly racist. The "Israeli Soldier Costume for Kids" is incredibly insensitive, offensive and encourages aggressive acts towards Palestinians. Walmart is trivializing a very real and brutal conflict, particularly given the increased violence recently. 

Earlier this year, Walmart pulled all of its Confederate flag merchandise. In a press release, the company said, “we never want to offend anyone with the products that we offer.” Sign and help urge Walmart President and CEO Doug McMillon to uphold this promise, and pull these costumes off their shelves and online store.
