On social media, fans of Billie Eilish and her new boyfriend Jesse Rutherford have criticised the pair for wearing costumes that match each other for Halloween. Some of these followers have described the costumes as “very frightening.”
The two, who have been friends since 2017 but only started dating a month ago, appeared to make light of the criticism that has been levelled at their relationship due to the 11-year age gap between them by dressing up as a baby and an elderly man.
Billie, who was twenty years old, dressed up as a baby by donning a blonde wig, doll-like makeup, a pink costume adorned with colourful teddy bears, a matching bonnet, pink bunny slippers, and a diaper. She also wore pink bunny slippers.
During this time, Jesse, the frontman for The Neighbourhood, who is 31 years old, was photographed on Twitter by Pop Crave while wearing a bald cap and wrinkled prosthetics.
Although Billie has not yet uploaded any photos of herself dressed up for Halloween to the internet, she was spotted in the background of a shot that her brother Finneas and another musician, Ashe, had posted on Instagram.
‘Sick and twisted’
On social media, followers were quick to criticise the similar costumes, using words like “strange,” “gross,” and “wrong” to describe the coordinated looks.
One admirer remarked that it was “very sick and twisted” for Billie Eilish and Jessie Rutherford to wear matching Halloween costumes, especially considering the age gap between them and the power imbalance between them. It’s not amusing or cool, it’s not making fun of anything, it’s upsetting, and the grownups in her life are failing her yet again.
Another person said, “That Billie Eilish outfit is really frightening and I absolutely loathe it every time it crosses my timeline.” This was followed by a third person who stated, “Billie is grown up enough to realise how bizarre and creepy this is.”
Someone else tweeted, “Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford think they are being edgy with their Halloween costumes, but it’s really embarrassing.” I have no doubt that she will lament this decision in a few years’ time.
“Must have been quite funny in person because it appears like they truly do not want their costume photographs to be posted online… Another user made the observation that it “almost seems like they are aware that it is incredibly odd.”
Others, on the other hand, maintained that there was nothing wrong with the costumes and that people were making an issue out of nothing when there wasn’t really one to begin with.
I thought Halloween was something where people could have fun dressing up as whatever they wanted to have fun as, and everyone who is harassing and making fun of Billie for her Halloween costume this year can literally f**k off,” a fan commented. “You literally need to grow up because it’s not that profound.”
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s Halloween costumes
The criticism that was levelled at Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly for their peculiar Halloween costumes came just before Billie’s controversial getup was revealed.
Megan dressed up as a priest while wearing latex lingerie, thigh-high boots, fishnet stockings, and a silver wig, while the rapper dressed up as a priest wearing a black and red robe and clutching a glass of red wine. Megan also dressed up as a priest.
The engaged couple flaunted their stylish ensembles in a series of photos and videos that were uploaded on Instagram, including a clip of MGK giving his fiancee communion while she kneeled in front of him.
Followers rushed to the comments section to criticise the clothes, with a significant number of individuals stating that the garments “disrespect Christianity.”
One user commented, “What the hell is wrong with you folks,” while others responded by calling the outfits “satanic,” “vomit-inducing,” and “next-level freak s**t.”
During the Halloween weekend, the couple also dressed up as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. This move, which critics have criticised as “stupid and callous,” was made despite the fact that the former Playboy model has subsequently claimed that their relationship was violent.
