Yandy — an online retailer that offers a sexy variation of every costume imaginable: lion tamer, assassin, skeleton — presents the “Fake News” dress, a newspaper-print frock for $55.
The product description reads, “Spread all the alternative facts in this exclusive Fake News costume featuring a white tank dress with a scoop neckline, thick shoulder straps, an allover newspaper design, “FAKE” printed in red across the bust, and a scoop back. (Glasses not included.)”
Social media reception was tepid at best.
As much as I like sexy, a sexy “fake news” costume should just not be a thing. (It’s a thing)

“Sexy Fake News” was as inevitable as the rising and setting of the sun, tbh.https://t.co/pdpfQlszvU

The “Fake News” dress is a tame concept from the Phoenix-based company which, in October, debuted its “Sexy Ken Bone” costume, inspired by the undecided voter who went viral during the second presidential debate, for his unique name and bright red sweater.
And for those who want to make even more of a political statement, Yandy also offers a sexy Donald Trump getup — the Donna T. Rumpshaker — with royal blue booty shorts.
