A woman posted a picture of herself dressed as a Boston Marathon victim for Halloween. The Twitter backlash began.

The 22-year-old woman went to an office Halloween party dressed as the bombing victim complete with athletic wear and fake blood. She then tweeted a picture of herself in the costume.

She got ripped apart on Twitter– including criticism from an actual Boston Marathon victim.  Some went so far as to contact the woman’s family and send death threats to her parents.

Some pointed out the existence of nude photos and videos of the woman on Tumblr. The woman later apologized and said she was fired from her job.  She has taken down all her social media profiles.
