“Scary Peeper Creeper”

With its leering eyes, furrowed brow and hands cupped around a pockmarked face, there is no mistaking what the “Scary Peeper Creeper” is meant to imitate: the head of a “peeping Tom” looking in through a window.

“Perfect for scaring friends and family during Halloween or any other time of the year,” promises a description for the product on Home Depot’s website. “Realistic face looks just like a real man is peering through the window at you.”
Home Depot to pull ‘Peeper Creeper’ Halloween costume in Canada after complaints

The company pulled the almost $30 item from stores after someone complained that it made light of voyeurism, which is a crime.

The “Scary Peeper Creeper” costume features a hooded man peering through a window.

However, it is still available in Home Depot’s United States stores and online.
