KATE’S FAM­ILY FAUX PAS

In Touch (USA) - - News -

You’ll never guess why the Mid­dle­tons are un­der fire!

Bri­tish no­bles have a long his­tory with blood sports, but this has gone too far — Kate Mid­dle­ton’s par­ents are be­ing slammed for sell­ing a Deluxe Roadkill Pet Cos­tume for kids. The out­fit, avail­able on the Michael and Ca­role’s Party Pieces web­site, is ba­si­cally a rab­bit suit with wounds, tire marks and blood­shot eyes. “The roadkill cos­tume is freak­ing out young chil­dren. I’ve spo­ken to a lot of par­ents [who] are con­sid­er­ing not go­ing trick-or-treat­ing as their chil­dren are fright­ened,” said U.K. mom Is­abel Bran­don, who has a 2-year-old, while mom-of-two Jess Ashe com­plained, “I can’t be­lieve some kids wear that sort of stuff — or that re­tail­ers think it is ac­cept­able to make it. It’s shock­ing.” That in­cludes Kate’s fam­ily. “It would ap­pear they have over­stepped the bound­ary of good taste and blun­dered dan­ger­ously into the ter­ri­tory sign­posted ‘ex­tremely of­fen­sive,’” wrote Tim But­ters in an in­quisitr.com opin­ion piece. “The duchess is prob­a­bly mor­ti­fied.” Still, U.K. home­own­ers shouldn’t be sur­prised to find roadkill at their doorstep on Oct. 31 — the $15 getup is out of stock for chil­dren ages 10 to 12.
