Social Justice Warriors Triggered by Connor McDavid's Halloween Costume
The harsh and over-the-top negative reaction against Connor McDavid’s Halloween costume is utterly at odds with the spirit of Halloween. It’s a sourpuss take on the whimsical, wild and wicked freedom of expression that Halloween represents.
As everyone on social media now knows, McDavid dressed up as Donald Trump with his girlfriend Lauren Kyle dressing up as Melania for Halloween.
This has provoked calls that McDavid’s actions are at least insensitive and at worst an endorsement of Trump and his policies. Of course, this does not sit well with folks who see Trump as a sick and twisted man. One writer on Twitter, Brian McNary, stated the outrage at McDavid succinctly: “Dressing as a serial liar, bigot, and homophobe who brags about sexual assault is not funny.”
