For most, Halloween is a festive time of costumes, trick-or-treating and too much wine, but for a certain class of professionally aggrieved internet creatures, the holiday is nothing to joke about.

On Monday Cosmopolitan magazine published an article warning parents that dressing up their Caucasian children up like nonwhite Disney characters Moana or Tiana from “The Princess and the Frog” would not be tolerated.

“Think about using this Halloween as an opportunity to teach your kids about the importance of cultural sensitivity,” wrote the magazine under the byline RedBook Editors.

“If your Caucasian son or daughter doesn’t get to be exactly what they wanted for Halloween, encourage them to take a step back and realize that they’re awash in privileges that the real Moanas and Tianas of the world will likely never see, because the world is full of racist a–holes,” the magazine wrote.

The Internet, however disagreed, blasting the publication for the cultural finger-wagging.
