Halloween is still six months away, but a controversial 'Border Wall' costume inspired by President Trump's immigration enforcement policy has already come come under fire for being 'racist' and 'offensive'.

Costume Agent's unisex costume has the words 'Mexico Will Pay' splashed across a onesie that features a white and black brick wall pattern, and it is retailing for $19.95 for adult sizes and $12.95 for a teen version. The getup, which is officially named 'Trump Mexico Will Pay Zip Up Costume Jumpsuit', is being sold on Amazon, and critics are flocking to the site to give the item abysmal one-star reviews. 

Some people think it's a joke, others say this item promotes hatred. Take this down Amazon!!' one person commented. Another added: 'Pathetic Amazon sells this crap. Not even funny. Later on we will find KKK products in here.' And one person wrote: 'I can't believe someone even made this. It is so distasteful. Grow up and educate yourself before you go around wearing offensive things like this.'

What do you think? Funny? Or tasteless? Or both?
