With Halloween just around the corner, one NFL fan already found a way to offend just about everyone by wearing a Ray Rice costume — complete with a blowup version of the player's then-to-be wife he'd just beaten unconsciousness.
Photos of a man dragging the limp blowup doll by its hair showed up on Reddit Sunday in a forum reserved for taboo and tasteless humor called Too Soon.
Comments quickly flooded the site saying that anytime was too soon for the the costume. The photos were first posted by Redditor AL0311 along with the sick caption:
"Ladies were falling for my friends Ray Rice costume."
In the offensive photos — mimicking the famous domestic violence surveillance video at an Atlantic City casino (photo at bottom) — the man wearing the former Baltimore Ravens running back's No. 27 jersey is seen dragging around a blowup doll in a long, dark wig.
Rice was suspended by the NFL and the case led to better awareness of domestic violence involving athletes. Legal experts now believe Rice has a strong case in his appeal against the suspension, and that he will likely win an argument that his suspension should only be six weeks, which has already passed.
These might be two of the worst ideas in a long time.
