Jaden Smith’s choice of Halloween costume has sparked backlash for being “disgusting” and “inhumane”.
Kendall Jenner, the host of the event, was criticised for putting on a 100-person birthday party in the midst of a pandemic.
Now, one of the guests in attendance has sparked further outrage with his choice of costume.
Smith wore an oxygen mask as part of his costume. He then posted a photo on Instagram, suggesting that he was dressing as the protagonist from the film Tenet.
Despite this clarification, people thought it was an insensitive choice of costume during covid-19.
