The costume includes a white corset, matching shorts and a sash that reads “Call Me Caitlyn.”
One website claims it’ll make its wearer “the top news story of the night.”
“Transphobic costume” is what a petition on Change.org said about the release of the costume by another retailer.READ MORE: Family Of 18-Year-Old Garret Hayward, Killed By Suspected DUI Driver, Hold Emotional Vigil
The petition has garnered 1,053 supporters and calls for the company to stop production of the costume.
“To make a costume out of a marginalized identity reduces that person and community to a stereotype for privileged people to abuse,” the petition said in part.
The petition added: “In this case, if you follow through with production of a Caitlyn Jenner costume, cisgender people will purchase it to make fun of her and our community.”MORE NEWS: In Wake Of Recent Crime Uptick, Beverly Hills Hires More Officers And Increases Patrols
