Popeye’s controversial, temporary chicken sandwich sparked the debate of the year in Twitter. I sadly didn’t get to taste the sandwich.

Although he was never charged with a crime during that dramatical hearing that shook up Twitter, all we know about him is that he was your typical frat boy who loved to chug some beers, and who would have been subjected to an intensive Title IX training.

6. Whistleblower

If you want to dress up as someone who has been very influential on YouTube, then why not dress up as Bob Ross? Remember to bring paint and canvases to turn the party into an art gallery.

9. Fake news

I know that this list includes dressing up as actual politicians to make your Halloween costume both controversial and funny, but you can also dress as a concept. You can be creative with this one. Use a white shirt and write any way you like the phrase “fake news.”

10. “Old Town Road”


This was hands down the remix song of the year and you really just need fringed shirts and ten-gallon hats to pull the look.
