PHOTO: Ashley Benson Sparks Controversy Over 'Cecil The Lion' Halloween Costume

October 7, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi

Uh oh…let the controversial Halloween costumes begin! Ashley Benson posted a picture to Instagram asking fans to help her decide about a potential Halloween costume, and fans were not happy with her choice.

Her original Instagram caption stated “Help! Can’t decide on my Halloween costume this year! What do you guys think of this cecil the lion costume? @yandy #thanksyandy #halloweencostume.”

Cecil the Lion? Like, the beloved lion that was unfortunately killed by an American dentist? Yikes. Here’s a screen grab of the original caption:

Benson quickly realized her mistake and edited the caption to say “this lion” instead of “Cecil the Lion.”

I personally don’t think she was trying to be offensive, it was honestly a poor choice of words. In her defense, Yandy actually makes an official “Cecil the Lion” costume. In fact, 20% of proceeds of the limited-edition costume will be donated to a “global conservation organization to support global conservation initiatives.”

Do you think she meant any harm by it?
