i don't find it that bad. it's funny how people are outraged about this, but don't get all up in arms when the news shows them 20 times this kind of thing each night.

that's just me though. This costume is about 2 changes away from just being "zombie marathon runner"...

While it's a pretty bad costume and I can't believe she'd dress as that, I even more so can't believe that she got fired for it.

There are a lot of stupid things you can do that deserve to be a fireable offense, but this one IMHO is just not one of them.

People can be so dumb sometimes. She deserves whatever crap comes her way, just not the death threats, that's crossing the line.

She was fired from work for her advocacy of freedom of choice. Thats the sad part.

Soon enough people will be banned from farting in their own homes just in case it offend someone in another country!

She did something stupid but not evil. The people threatening her and her parents with torture, rape, murder, etc are the real animals in this story.

Halloween is one night where you can dress like whatever you want. I have no problems with her costume.

-Likely in an at-will state for employment rules, i would've fired her as well. It shows poor judgment and negative attention. Even if the boss didn't mind the costume, the negative publicity she'll generate from this requires a termination to save face for the company and make sure the idiocy of American mob mentality doesn't affect the workplace more than it needs to.

Moron, deserved what she got, and i am unclear what exactly she expected to happen here.

Exactly lol

I saw a friend on Facebook had posted a picture from some Halloween party or club, and one guy in the pic was dressed up as a Boston Marathon runner. Including blood and cuts all over.

It's a Halloween costume that's one time a year, people should lighten up. It is indeed what would be considered a "poor" costume, but no person should ever lose a job or receive death threats over it.

The costume was of bad taste. I agree with it that much, but to threaten her and her family is a little overboard.

Classless, but come on, you shouldn't get fired for what you dressed up as for Halloween. I mean I saw people dressed as Trayvon, and Casey Anthony masks, etc.

Maybe not the most tasteful, but I don't have a problem with it. We live in a great land that allows for personal expression.

I've seen costumes of a shot JFK and Lincoln.

In all honesty I don't have a problem with it, people dress up as Hitler and serial killers all the time for the Halloween and you don't hear anything about it.

The world is becoming WAY to politically correct. There is nothing wrong done here, however the pics that have showed up are a ok in my book
