In your opinion.

It's a free country, nobody should be banned from dressing in a certain way.

You can register your dislike but I they can justifiably tell you to feck off for being an obnoxious prick.
I cannot fathom how one person can manifest such ignorance

It's racist. If Arabs/Muslims did a similar thing to the West (wearing a pope's costume lol) ,the public and media would be outraged etc. but if you guys did it the Arabs then it's supposed to be fine?

Sorry for being harsh...
Honestly I think it's kind of the other way around. If a non-white celebrity impersonated a white guy for Halloween, I don't think anyone would make a big deal. If a white guy impersonated someone from an ethnic minority, then I think it would be picked up on.

I wouldn't have any problem with a non-white, non-Catholic person dressing up as the Pope, for example, and I can't think of anyone who would (except people saying it would be considered racist for a white man to dress up as a Sheik)

(No one really cares if non-famous people do these things though)
