If you’re thinking of being something offensive this Halloween, we here at In Touch Weekly have a friendly suggestion for you — don’t do it.

We’d offer some of the awful things people have come up with — but we’d hate to give anyone any ideas.

Last week, after TMZ shared a story about someone turning Ray Rice’s domestic abuse controversy into a “costume” — by wearing his jersey and dragging a blow-up doll behind him — and the NFL player’s wife and victim, Janay, responded to the story saying, “It’s sad that my suffering amuses others.”

We’d like to applaud Janay for speaking out against the tasteless costume — and just remember, when in doubt, you don’t want to be “that guy.”

Or, you can just learn from these six stars’ mistakes.
