Ashley Benson received quite a bit of backlash for wearing this costume! The actress shared a picture of herself in what she called a ‘Cecil the Lion costume’ and that didn’t go over so well with some of her fans.
It was a simple mistake on Ashley Benson‘s, 25, part! The actress couldn’t decide on a Halloween costume and thought it would be best to ask her fans for their opinion. Unfortunately, Ashely committed a faux pas while doing so because she called her sexy lion ensemble a ‘Cecil the Lion costume’ and some fans were totally unhappy with the caption and costume.

“👎 offensive choice,” user roerman commented on Ashley’s picture. While another fan and Instagram user conne.miley wrote, “Love u Ash, but not really this costume💞” Thankfully Ashley got the hint because she changed her caption from “Cecil the Lion” to just “lion” shortly after. “Help! Can’t decide on my Halloween costume this year! What do you guys think of this lion costume? @yandy#thanksyandy #halloweencostume,” she wrote as she re-captioned the picture.
Although the Pretty Little Liars actress asked her fans for their opinion on the costume, she didn’t really give them another option to choose from! Ashley could be planning on taking the comfy route by going with this cute lion costume. Not only is it adorable, but it’s also for a good cause! According to Yandy’s website, 20 percent of the proceeds from the costume will be donated to a global conservation organization! That’s a pretty sweet deal.
Ashley Dresses Up As A Creepy Rag Doll
Ashley had the perfect Halloween costume in 2014. The actress dressed up as a sexy, yet creepy rag doll and her makeup was impeccable! The 25-year-old wore a corset dress with a dark wig and her skin painted to be very porcelain-like. We’ll have to wait and see how the Pretty Little Liar decides to top that costume this year!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers, did you find Ashley’s “Cecil” caption insensitive?
