If I hurt you ❤️ we were being authentic to the characters of Sid and Nancy for our Halloween costumes. It hurt and angered many of you and we are deeply sorry for that. That was never our intention. We did not mean to offend. With love, Lisa and Harry.

Harry Hamlin sparked outrage on Halloween when he donned a Sid Vicious outfit, which included a swastika T-Shirt and Hamlin’s wife LisaRinnaalso got in on the act by dressing up as the Sex Pistol’s murdered girlfriend, Nancy Spungen.
The couple were snapped attending George Clooney’s Casamigos Halloween party in Beverly Hills.
Criticism was quick and severe with critics slamming the “Mad Men” actor on Twitter for his “offensive” and “ignorant” costume.
