Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly spark multiple controversies with Halloween costumes

It's Halloween, the one night a year we confront the scariest things we can think of: Ghosts, ghouls, and getting canceled. Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly wore two sets of Halloween costumes this year, and both managed to offend everyone for entirely different reasons. First, they sparked backlash when Kelly dressed as a priest and Fox dressed in lingerie and fishnets, kneeling on the ground with a leash around her neck as he placed communion in her mouth in a suggestive fashion. "It's pretty gross and disrespectful," one Instagram comment read, while another asked "what the hell is wrong with you people." But they didn't settle for just one controversial costume in a single year, as the couple also drew backlash after they dressed as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee and Kelly snorted "cocaine" off Fox's breast. Maybe next year, these two can dress as the thing they find most terrifying of all: People not paying attention to them.

Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford dress as a baby and an old man for Halloween

Billie Eilish, meanwhile, decided to base her Halloween costume on the thing that's been haunting her fans lately: Age gaps! The "Bad Guy" singer was spotted at a Halloween party dressed as a baby, complete with a diaper, while her new boyfriend Jesse Rutherford dressed as an old man, wearing Jackass style old age makeup. It seemed like a clear reference to the fact that Eilish's fans have been freaking out over the age gap between her and Rutherford, the lead vocalist from The Neighbourhood whom she recently started dating, as he's 31 and she's 20. Needless to say, the costumes didn't exactly calm those fans down. "Billie is grown enough to know how weird and creepy this is btw," one fan tweeted, and other fans flooded her Instagram to leave comments like, "We've SEEN ur costume and we're not happy." But hey, it's Halloween, and every pop star's fandom is entitled to one good scare.

Kim Kardashian accidentally goes to non-costume party in full Halloween costume

It seems like nobody wants to dress up in Halloween costumes for dinner parties these days. Kim Kardashian lived out that viral "dressed as The Babadook at grown-ups-drinking-wine party" tweet this weekend by showing up to a non-costume party in a ridiculously elaborate Halloween costume. Kardashian decided to dress this year as Mystique, the blue mutant played by Jennifer Lawrence in the recent X-Men films, which involved making literally her entire body blue from head to toe. It looked impressive enough to win a Halloween costume contest, and she posted photos of herself alongside some similarly elaborate costumes like Diddy's Joker outfit. But she also shared a selfie with Tracee Ellis Ross, who's not in costume at all, and revealed she "showed up to a birthday dinner in full costume when it wasn't a costume party!" And it's still only her second most embarrassing outfit snafu of the year.

Tara Reid's 'queen of hearts' costume bombs on Twitter

Maybe a great Halloween costume just wasn't in the cards for Tara Reid this year. The Sharknado star took to Twitter to share what she described as her "queen of hearts" Halloween costume, writing, "I feel like a superhero in this outfit, I'm looking forward to playing new roles in future films channeling this energy." The outfit is red and covered in playing cards, but there was only one big problem: All the cards are diamonds, not hearts. "Tara those are diamonds," one person replied, while another asked, "Why are all the cards diamonds ma'am?" Eventually, Reid tried to recover by slamming the "shape police of Twitter" and assuring everyone, "I have metal hearts on it on the side which you can't see, and my necklace." Perfect save, no notes! Clearly, she put her heart into this costume, but unfortunately, the diamonds made it rough.

'The View' dresses a kid up in a deeply bizarre 'Oscars slap' costume

"Boo" is right. Monday's Halloween edition of The View featured a deeply bizarre moment where the show dressed a kid up as Will Smith's Oscar slap. This came during a segment called "Boo Are You Wearing?" highlighting "costumes inspired by this year's hottest topics." The View's wardrobe supervisor declared the show definitely doesn't want to "endorse violence of any kind," but she said they "couldn't help but talk about one of the hottest hot topics this year." So a child came out dressed completely in gold as if he's an Oscar statue, and a red hand print was painted on his face. Um, they do know Smith didn't slap an actual Oscar, right? Did someone just see the phrase "Oscars slap" and fill in the blanks? Viewers were miffed about the costume, but credit where credit is due: The idea of the Oscars slap still being in the news seven months later may, in fact, be the most chilling thought of the day.
