Whether it’s wearing an offensive outfit or a creepy get-up, sometimes celebrities are better off playing it safe rather than trying to be showstoppers. Perry’s flaming hot Cheeto look from 2014 is a perfect — albeit unfortunate — example. The costume looked sad in shape and wasn’t easily recognizable to some.
Duff, for her part, found herself in hot water in 2016 when she attended a Halloween bash dressed as a pilgrim. Her then-boyfriend, Jason Walsh, came as a Native American, wearing a full headdress and face makeup that didn’t bode well with fans. “I am SO sorry to people I offended with my costume. It was not properly thought through,” Duff tweeted at the time, apologizing for her controversial choice.
In 2021, Bethenny Frankel raised eyebrows when she opted to dress up as a police officer alongside her daughter, Bryn, one year after the major Black Lives Matter protests and the ongoing conversations about police brutality.
