Caitlyn Jenner costume causes controversy

You know you've come to forefront when they make a costume of you. 

Presidents, super heroes and movie stars are always big sellers, and this year they may be joined by someone whose Halloween parody is already stirring up controversy.

AnytimeCostumes.com has started promoting its "Call Me Caitlyn" costume for Halloween 2015, months before Oct. 31.

It is similar to the outfit that Caitlyn Jenner wore on her Vanity Fair when she officially came out as transgender.

Spirit Halloween is also said to be planning a Caitlyn costume.

But many people have taken to social media, posting their outrage.

A petition on Change.org has been started saying, "Your profit will only lead to greater transphobia and marginalization of an already at risk community."

The petition has more than 1,700 supporters a day after it was started. Organizers have set a goal of 2,500 supporters.
