What caught her followers’ attention the most was her getup for the photoshoot, which included a full-body suit made to look like burned flesh inspired by the “icon” Freddy Kruegar.

Instagram users in the comments fired off jokes, with many saying that the outfit looked more like a piece of “raw meat” or something that goes in a CrockPot.

Others also used the opportunity to poke fun at her recently released swimwear line which got slammed by consumers for bad quality.

“You know what else was a nightmare? That swim line,” one user quipped in the comments section.

But the real controversy seemingly revolved around the horror character himself, as Freddy Kruegar plays a questionable villain in the original film that the line is based off of.

Users in the comments called Jenner out on trying to portray a character known to be a “child predator.”

Someone on Twitter criticized the reality star for centering the collection around “a character who was burned alive because he murdered children.”

Other users didn’t take a liking to the line for other reasons, including that the TV personality has nothing to do with the horror film industry.

“Such a shame to ruin a great franchise...with this mess...blah,” one user wrote on Twitter, while another called the whole thing “f**king horrible.

It wasn’t all bad, though. Jenner’s sister Khloé Kardashian took to the comments section to congratulate her sister, writing: “My Halloween queen.” and “You are a living legend!!!!!”
