There’s a very thin line between what’s funny and what’s not. Home Depot Canada pulls ‘Scary Peeper Creeper’ decoration from shelves because it’s too… scary! This Halloween prop was designed to be used as a prank, but it received customer complaints and one of them even contacted CBC News. “I fail to see the humour in it,” Breanne Hunt-Wells, a concerned teacher and mother of two, said during her interview. “It makes light of a very serious crime. Voyeurism is a crime in Canada.”
Eventually, Home Depot reacted to the situation and removed the product from their assortment in Canada. Ironically, this is probably the best recognition a Halloween prop can receive. However, if you want to give somebody a heart attack, it’s still available to purchase in the US.
