Walmart withdraws hooked prosthetic “Sheik/Fagin Nose” from sale after outcry

Following an outcry, Walmart has withdrawn a Hallowe’en accessory from its website. The hooked prosthetic nose was supplied by Morris Costumes, which appears to have been responsible for the nose’s description. Fagin is the name of a character in Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist and is based on an antisemitic stereotype.
