Ashley Benson took to Instagram on Tuesday to ask her followers their opinion on a potential Halloween costume. The image shows her dressed up like a lion with the caption: "Help! Can't decide on my Halloween costume this year! What do you guys think of this lion costume?" Seems harmless enough, except the original caption was slightly different. Before editing her words, the text read, "What do you guys think of this cecil the lion costume?" Of course, Cecil, a 13-year-old Southwest African lion, gained worldwide attention after he was reportedly illegally killed by an American hunter in July. Her followers quickly commented on how insensitive they felt the costume was, most likely prompting Ashley to tweak her post.
