Hulu Deletes Tweet About ‘Cultural Appropriation’ After Internet Savaging

A popular television and movie streaming service was forced to delete a Tweet imploring Americans to wear “appropriate and respectful” Halloween costumes after discovering that thousands of Americans are not interested in being told what to do.

“If you’re dressing up for #Huluween this year, this is your reminder to wear a costume that is culturally appropriate and respectful to others. Let’s celebrate the holiday in a way that we can all enjoy,” Hulu said in the now-removed Tweet.
