Ariana Grande’s ‘Twilight Zone’ Halloween costume is freaking people out

Ariana Grande has had some iffy ideas for Halloween costumes, but thankfully, she went a more tasteful route this year.

On Wednesday evening, the singer posted a video and photo of her Halloween costume: a character from The Twilight Zone‘s “Eye of the Beholder.” In the classic 1960 episode, a woman named Janet Tyler undergoes yet another surgery to transform her face to look “normal,” but it’s revealed the surgery failed and she is still conventionally beautiful in a world where the majority have pig-like noses and misshapen lips. And that’s made her an “outcast.”

While some fans didn’t immediately get the reference, there were quite a few mentions of Piggy Smallz, Grande’s pet pig, as well as Grande’s iconic year-old response to her pet’s favorite tracks from Sweetener: “She is a pig.”

And some people were just freaked out. Twitter user @onelovesbutera responsed, “I don’t know whether to focus on the serve or how scared I am.”

Grande apparently didn’t stop at a costume, either. She tweeted that she “can’t wait to keep my home disguised as the twilight zone for the rest of my life.”
