SJW’s made to pay $1.5K for stickering ‘deeply offensive’ Halloween costumes

poca-hottieProtesters challenging the sale of costumes depicting stereotypes of First Nations people in Montreal stores ended up stuck with a hefty bill Friday night.

According to organizer Jessica Deer, police made the group pay $1,500 or face arrest for mischief for affixing stickers reading “We’re not costumes: Say no to cultural appropriation” to the packaging of numerous costumes at one store.

“I got out my credit card, and now we have 20 of the most ridiculous costumes that are worth over $1,500,” she told CBC News in an interview.
