Ice Cream costume =Nazi?

The Ice Cream Family Corner and Sandwiches, run by a normal Puerto Rican family, opened just three months ago in Ocala, Florida and is already causing controversy! They use an old ice cream costume, found in the closet of the building where they are located, as a way to bring attention to the restaurant.  Well this costume is causing issues because some people think it resembles a KKK outfit.

People started writing about the resemblance on Facebook and workers at the restaurant noticed a drop in customers.  The family claims they didn't know about the KKK until recently when all of the scandal started.  They have since stopped using the costume and apologized for any trouble it may have caused.

Without sprinkles please!
Some customers said they could see how people would be confused since the person outside often held a sign covering part of the costume.  Um....Call me crazy but I don't remember the KKK having colorful balls on their heads.
