Why it's never a good idea to dress your kid as Hitler for Halloween
This Kentucky man has faced a backlash after he dressed as a Nazi soldier and his 5-year-old son as Hitler for a Halloween party.
A good measure to bear in mind is if the costume brings to mind an event which killed millions of people it is not a good idea.
The man in question, Bryant Goldbach first reacted angrily on Facebook to the criticism he and his family received at the riverfront Trick or Treat party they attended in their area.
"What's the big deal, we like dressing up as historical figures," he posted.
But the internet was not buying it. After trawling his social media accounts where they found many other examples of racism and memes which many would classify as examples of alt-right propaganda.
