Halloween is the perfect holiday to put up spooky costumes as a tribute to the All Soul's Day. People of all ages partake in this tradition. Everybody exerts effort and time to create the scariest costume that they can come up with, but where do we really draw the line when it comes to halloween costumes?

Instead of welcoming the month of November with positive vibes, noontime show Eat Bulaga was criticized for showing inappropriate costume of two of their hosts. TV host Joey de Leon and senator Vicente 'Tito' Sotto was put under public scrutiny after dressing up as Muslim for the noontime show's halloween special.

While other hosts portrayed different characters, Sotto and de Leon was spotted wearing a Thawb, or the traditional outfit of Arab men. One rule in making a Halloween costume is that it must be scary, so why did it cross their mind to dress up as Arab men? What were they implying with their Muslim costumes?

To say the least, people were not pleased with their costumes. Netizens reacted to the controversial photos while saying that De Leon and Sotto have gone too far for portraying a 'negative' image against Muslims all around the world.

A Facebook user expressed his disapproval with the following comment:

So disgusting costume of Tito Sotto and also Joey De Leon, we Muslims are not celebrating Halloween Day. Why is his costume like an Arabian style? Which shows as Muslim?

Some of the people even said that their costume is a form of mockery against the religion of Islam and that they should make a public apology for it. Lot of commenters were from the Islamic community who felt that they were disrespected. One netizen also claimed that the episode brought him a 'lot of disappointments' because of the costumes.

I am a Muslim so I can't help but to react and ask Senator Tito Sotto about his halloween costume. It's a big insult for us as Muslim. This costume named 'Thawb or Thobes' are generally worn by Muslim men in Mosque. By wearing this one in your Eat Bulaga's Halloween episode brought a lot of disappointment for us as Muslim.

On the other hand, other people took the lighter side of the issue and said that it was just a simple costume, nothing more nothing less and it's definitely not worth the fuss.

Meanwhile, Eat Bulaga's side of the story is yet to be heard. De Leon and Sotto have also not reacted yet about the issue. What are your thoughts about this, do you think their costume is just fine or downright disrespectful? Share your thoughts with us on the comment's section below!
