Every Halloween, there is always at least one celebrity who stirs up controversy with their costume choices. Of course, some stars truly slay with their costumes, but we can't discuss the great ones without calling out those that are just offensive (we're looking at you, Hilary Duff). This year, Lena Dunham drew costume inspiration from the political sphere, and the reactions were mixed, to say the least. In fact, many thought Lena's costume was distasteful.

A photo posted by Lena on Instagram shows the actress dressed in a black body suit, cat ears, large cat paws, and a mask. Dressing as a cat doesn't sound controversial at all, right? Well, maybe you need to see the full picture...

While there's nothing wrong with Lena showing her outrage for what Trump said in that infamous Access Hollywood tape, some commenters felt that her costume took it too far. To such people, it looked liked Lena was making light of a very serious societal issue: "How is this funny?" asked user @andreaggcb. "Trump's comments should NOT be taken this lightly. This is absurd." Others felt that Lena's explicit costume was "disgusting." Many others, however, supported Lena, and praised her for publicly calling out Trump's sexism. "Lena Dunham you are beautiful and bold," said user @hmsmackers. "Thank you for your bravery in posting this in spite of the inevitable backlash." Whether you love it or hate it, Lena's costume is extremely controversial — and we're curious to see if Lena will issue an apology or defend her actions.
