Halloween is a fun time for kids to dress up as their favorite characters and explore new personas, but costumes for this candy-filled holiday have been known to cross the line from playful to offensive. Between the cringeworthy pop culture "jokes" and the culturally insensitive outfits, parents need to think twice about the costumes their kiddos pick and if it could be insulting someone's heritage. Recently, Twitter users came across a particular Halloween costume idea targeted toward little ones, and it doesn't take much thinking to see how tasteless it really is: Anne Frank during World War II.
