Nxa – Hated it: ‘Sexy’ Ebola for Halloween

2014-11-02 15:00

Halloween is an American tradition that, much like everything American, has been filtered into the rest of the world.

It is a time of celebrating all things spooky and is also a time where girls get to dress up in their lingerie and no one can say a damn thing about it.

Now I have no problem with women dressing however they please, but you’ve got to draw the line somewhere. And my line gets severely drawn when sexy Ebola containment suits start popping up on online shopping sites.

To whoever designed this travesty (which retails at the ridiculous price of R650), Ebola might seem like some vague disease that affects starving black people in far-flung African countries they can’t pronounce, but to the rest of the world, Ebola is a terrible disease that should be of grave concern to anyone with the slightest semblance of a conscience.

To not only turn it into a costume but a “sexy” costume is probably the height of idiocy. So there it is, our I-spit-on-this-I-hate-it-so-much Nxa of the week.

Oh, and there’s also a “sexy Ebola nurse costume” to add to the fury.
