You can now buy an Ebola nurse action figure resembling Kaci Hickox

Controversial Ebola-themed holiday ideas didn't stop with sexy Halloween costumes. Thanks to action figure website Hero Builders, you can pick up a Case-E Ebola Nurse Action Figure in time for Christmas.


Time notes that the doll strongly resembles real-life nurse Kaci Hickox, who has fought New Jersey and Maine on mandatory quarantine regulations since returning three weeks ago from Sierra Leone.

"I don't know who you're talking about, I don't know who Kaci Hickox is," Hero Builders President Emil Vicale coyly told Time. "This nurse's name is Case-E. She bears no resemblance."

Like the real Hickox, the action figure is Ebola-free — she even comes with a health certificate.
