Home Depot Pulling Peeping Tom Decorations Amid Halloween Controversy

Published

on

Home Depot is under fire for selling some seriously questionable Halloween decorations. The retailer caught some serious flack from customers for having the ‘Scary Peeper Creeper’ product available for sale and quickly backpedaled, claiming that they would be responding to complaints and are in the middle of ‘the process’ of pulling the product, which currently remains available for sale in physical locations and on their website.

The Scary Peeper Creeper and features a man holding up his hands and leering. The man depicted has a full-sized face that could be easily mistaken for a real person. After all, that’s the point. The dummy man sports “realistic” details. The site described the decoration as ‘scary’ and ‘fun’.

The customer who complained appeared on the CBC Radio’s Metro Morning show, stating that she failed to see the humor in it and that it makes light of the “crime” and horrible experience of voyeurism and other trespassing-type crimes, and others agree.

For anyone who’s ever experienced a bad breakup, a stalker, a real-life peeping Tom, a sexual assault, or rape, the so-called ‘decoration’ could be downright triggering and even spark an anxiety attack or bout of depression. Anyone who’s ever been followed in a mall parking lot or been scared by someone hanging out around their home could even be likely to suffer a flashback or attack related to PTSD.

Apparently, Home Depot agrees – or at the very least, wants to rectify an issue that’s caused quite the controversy. The retailer’s site described the Scary Peeper Creeper as the “perfect” item to scare your family and friends during Halloween. However, the company quickly responded to complaints and gave in without a fuss. That’s good, because fighting it would likely be like mocking Freddy Kreuger as he follows you – it’s only going to make the situation worse.

Home Depot listened to the complaint and quickly addressed the issue through a spokeswoman, who said that the company will begin pulling the product. She stated that the product “is not in line with our core values” and emphasized that when Home Depot heard the complaint, they took “immediate action”. She stated that the company is currently in the process of removing the product from stores, had reached out to advise customers of the product pull, and apologized for any offense caused.
Currently, the product is still up on the site and available for sale. Hopefully, Home Depot’s process works quickly because right now, customers can currently purchase the peeping tom decor for their own home. Whether the company would honor your purchase and take your money or not remains to be seen.
