Looking at the Michelle Obama Halloween mask at Duane Reade



Only $9.99, though it's on sale now for $7.99 with your Duane Reade Dollar Reward Card. From the "Fright Factory" collection. Doesn't this just seem -- wrong?



And Duane Reade really needs fitting rooms to try on masks and stuff ... instead, shoppers are forced to quickly put things on in the middle of the store.

1. She looks like OJ in drag.

2. It's SO unflattering that it comes across as racist. Exaggerated features. I mean, does it come with tap shoes or a maid's uniform.

Horrible.

Thanks for the comment, Liberation... This is really horrible. Dunno how Fright Factory got away with it...

Michelle Obama is a pretty and very stylish woman. This is an ugly misrepresentation of her.

This could very well be a symptom of the current distaste for Obama, and the way he's running his administration. I for one am NOT one of his admirers, but stooping to a level like this is just plain mean. The deliberate attention paid to distorting her face can't be anything less.

Agreed, Melanie!
