Kohl's Ghetto Fab Wig

Yes, you heard me right and your eyes are not deceiving you. Click on the link to go to the company website. Am I wrong for finding this offensive? It's not necessarily the product to take issue with, it is Halloween after all and there are a thousand other wigs on the market. The problem for me is the name, the connotation and stereotype that goes along with it.

An online friend of mine sent this to me with her letter to the company voicing her distaste and I followed suit with my own letter.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Not only is the wig on sale at Kohl's it can also be purchased on Amazon.con. The company that makes the wig is called California Costumes.

You'll be happy to know that the item is no longer available and the description has been changed to "curly wig"! Ahhh the power of the pen/keyboard!
