Caitlyn Jenner responds to *that* Halloween costume
Joining a long lineage of questionable Halloween costumes is this year’s biggest wince-inducing getup: Caitlyn Jenner.

Inspired by her now iconic Vanity Fair cover shoot, the costume involves a white unitard, wig and sash and as soon as images of it began popping up across the Web, many members of the LGBT community denounced it as insensitive and transphobic.
In an interview with TODAY, Jenner finally revealed how the spoof makes her feel and, perhaps surprisingly, she admitted: “I’m in on the joke. I don’t think it’s offensive at all. I know the community does and they’ve gotten a lot of criticism for doing it. I think it’s great.”

She even went on to joke about the whole thing, saying, “I mean, that was a serious bustier on the cover of Vanity Fair. At least get some good clothes. You’ve got to enjoy life. Life’s too short. I can’t get too upset about that type of stuff.”
