Update (9/24/15): A rep from Walmart confirmed that the costume has been removed from the site for violating the store's prohibited products policy. 

See the original story below.

It's that time of year again, when retailers like Walmart release wildly offensive costumes for Halloween.

The superstore is now targeting the children's section with a costume called, "Little Amigo" that comes with a striped serape shirt, a straw hat, and a mustache. The cringe-worthy description reads: "Let the Fiesta begin for your little one in our Little Amigo Costume!"

Walmart apparently doesn't understand that it is disrespectful to dress your child up as someone of another culture especially for parties, parades, family occasions and other holiday productions and festivities as the site recommends. 

Of course this kind of costume isn't necessarily surprising coming from a store that last year referred to their plus-size Halloween outfits as "Fat-Girl Costumes."
