Company pulls Anne Frank costume after social media outrage.

PHOENIX, Ariz. - With Halloween soon approaching, one of the first controversial costumes of the year has just been pulled off shelves.

A Phoenix-based costume shop removed the Anne Frank costume from their website Sunday after receiving criticism on social media.

The costume included a blue dress, brown shoulder bag and a green beret.

Frank, who was Jewish, died in Nazi Germany during the Holocaust. She documented the two-year-long struggle her family faced as they hid.

Her diary was found by her father after her death, and was later published as a literary work in 60 languages.
