Amazon fancy dress burka and Arab costumes slammed as 'racist and religiously offensive'
by Mark Chandler
Fancy dress costumes available through Amazon depicting Mexicans, Arabs and burkas have sparked outrage over claims they are racist and religiously offensive.
Items available through third parties on the retail website include a traditional Arab costume which appears to be modelled by a white man.
It provoked howls of protest in the product's online reviews, with one person writing: "You're all disgusting racists."
Another complained: "A persons culture is NOT a fancy dress costume."
