Hulu network mocked unmercifully for reminder to choose ‘culturally appropriate, respectful’ Halloween costumes

Hulu, the subscription TV service that served up “Handmaid’s Tale,” tried to promote itself with a “reminder” to wear “culturally appropriate and respectful” costumes this Halloween.

The tweet came complete with a #Huluween hashtag.

“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,” the tweet read.

The ill-advised PSA resulted in Hulu being mocked unmercifully online. So much so that they deleted the tweet.

As for the ridicule, there were two common themes with social media user, telling Hulu to “stay in your lane” and a timely call of attention to the mother of all cultural appropriation, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
