After spotting “The Peeper” mask at The Home Depot, Breanne Hunt-Wells contacted the CBC News to complain, saying the Creeper is “inappropriate and makes light of a real-life, sinister issue that women face in our society.”
“I fail to see the humour in it,” Hunt-Wells said in an interview on CBC Radio’s Metro Morning show today. “It makes light of a very serious crime. Voyeurism is a crime in Canada.”
The Home Depot says it was intended as fun and to fool/scare friends and family for Halloween.
The box store Giant, however, has relented and is pulling it from it’s shelves.
The CBC has the full story but what do you think? Is she overreacting? Is it too much? Or is it just a bit of fun? Deb
