Halloween is a week away and one partygoer has already offended some people online by deciding to dress up as Ray Rice.

According to the Daily Mail, Internet users were outraged when photos showing a guy wearing a Rice jersey and dragging a blow-up doll in a long, dark wig to represent Rice's wife were posted Sunday on Reddit’s Too Soon forum, which is reserved for taboo and tasteless humor.

The photos were first published by Reddit user AL0311 with the caption: “Ladies were falling for my friends Ray Rice costume.”

One pic also shows the man smiling for the camera as he grabs the doll’s hair.

Rice, 27, is currently under indefinite suspension from the Baltimore Ravens after a video emerged showing him knocking out his then-fiancée, Janay Palmer, unconscious in an elevator at the Revel casino in Atlantic City on Feb. 15.

The football star is then shown dragging Janay’s limp body from the elevator, an act of domestic violence the Halloween jokester mocked with the inflatable doll.

While many people on Reddit found the costume hilarious, others on sites like BuzzFeed were not laughing, calling the stunt “despicable” and “contemptuous.”

What do you think? Did this NFL fan cross the line with his Halloween costume?
