Sexy 'maiden costume' yanked from website after backlash from 'Handmaid's Tale' fans

PHOENIX (FOX NEWS) --  An online clothing company removed Friday a costume reminiscent of the outfit worn in the dystopian Hulu series “The Handmaid’s Tale” following social media backlash.

A picture of a model wearing the costume featured a red minidress paired with a red cape and a white bonnet. Yandy.com sold the costume that it described as the “Yandy Brave Red Maiden Costume.”

“An upsetting dystopian future has emerged where women no longer have a say,” the description read.

“However, we say be bold and speak your mind in this exclusive Brave Red Maiden costume featuring a red minidress, a matching cloak with an attached hood and a white bonnet headpiece,” the description stated.

The costume could have been yours for $64.95 before it was pulled from the site.
