Well, this is disappointing.

Some Halloween costume companies are trying to capitalize on Caitlyn Jenner's transition and are selling a Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume.

:::BRB, Rage break::::

Not surprisingly, the costume caused such backlash that some companies appear to have pulled them from their lineup. One company even went so far as to create an Olympian costume with a sash that said "Call Me Caitlyn," referencing the former Olympian's Vanity Fair debut. That "costume" appears to no longer be available, but BuzzFeed got a screengrab while it still was and you can see it here if you feel so inclined.

Spirit Halloween claims that the costume will celebrate the 65-year-old, not make fun of her. "Caitlyn Jenner has proven to be the most important real-life superhero of the year," Spirit Halloween's rep told The Daily News. "Spirit Halloween is proud to carry the costume that celebrates her."

For what it's worth, Anytime Costumes, one of the companies making a Cait costume, categorizes it as "humorous," so there's that. There has already been a petition started, which is a petition to Spirit Halloween, asking them to "Stop Exploiting Caitlyn Jenner With a Transphobic Costume," and it had been signed by 2,759 people at the time this article was published.

People are also making their feelings known on Twitter: As of right now, Spirit Halloween doesn't plan on removing the costume from their stores.
