David Walliams is no stranger to dressing up as celebrities, as the much-missed and seriously underrated 'Rock Profile' series demonstrated.

However, it seems that he may have taken things a step too far for his Halloween costume.

The comedian and Britain's Got Talent judge decided to dress as North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, and he is facing a backlash and accusations of racism after posting a picture of himself with what looks like heavy make-up and Kim's trademark haircut at Jonathan Ross's party.

While many defended him and accused those who were offended of being overly sensitive, many others denounced Walliams for being culturally insensitive by dressing as a person of a different race - no matter how much of a tyrant he may be.
