Home Depot Canada has confirmed they have pulled from their shelves the “Scary Peeper Creeper” Halloween decoration.
Mounted on a window, it depicts a sinister-looking man wearing a hoodie trying to peer inside a house.
Home Depot made the decision after some customers complained the Halloween decoration was inappropriate and makes light of stalking and voyeurism. In Canada, pleading guilty to voyeurism carries a penalty of six months in prison and/or a fine of $2000.
Meanwhile, “Scary Peeper Creeper” has been available for purchase since 2012.
We want to ask you— do you think it was right to take the decoration off shelves, or was this an overreaction?
