It's 2016, how are there still people accidentally dressing up in offensive ways on Halloween? Have they not looked at a magazine or website in the last 10 years? Do they not have any friends to give them the lowdown? Apparently Hilary Duff and her boyfriend did not get the memo that appropriating other people's cultures as Halloween "costumes" is not a good idea. On Sunday, Duff posted a tweet apologizing for their decision to dress up as a Pilgrim (her) and a Native American (him). COME ON.

At the end of the night, she shot him and stole his land.

Duff, and her boyfriend, trainer Jason Walsh, were photographed at Friday night's Casamigos Tequila Halloween Party in Beverly Hills. I guess they thought their couple's costume was cute, but they soon found out otherwise when they started getting shredded on social media.

In case it's not clear why some people find Walsh's costume offensive, Twitter is quite happy to explain.

Duff is not alone in her mistake of participating in a questionable Native American costume choice—in 2010, both Paris Hilton and Miley Cyrus went out dressed as "sexy Native Americans." True, those incidents took place six years ago but Duff really should have known better. Sigh. There's always next year.
