New York State Schools Ban "Squid Game" Costumes for Halloween.

The Fayetteville-Manlius School District wrote to parents that costumes from the Netflix series will not be accepted at their institutes. "Games related to violent behavior are not appropriate at recess," they remarked.

A school district in New York State has banned students from wearing Halloween costumes from the new Netflix hit "The Squid Game" out of fear that it could heighten violence.

The South Korean dystopian series shows hundreds of people with financial difficulties competing in a traditional children's game. The victor can win millions, but the losers are killed. Set includes marbles, tug of war, and red and green light.

The Fayetteville-Manlius school district, about 250 miles north of New York City, wrote to parents to inform them that costumes in the series, including green masks and jumpsuits and pink overalls, will not be accepted in their six centers.

He said the district hopes parents and supervisors will reinforce the school's message that violent sports are not appropriate during the holidays.

In England earlier this month, schools warned parents that students were copying games from an adult series.

"Our principals want to make sure our families are aware that it would be inappropriate for students to wear costumes from this series to school for Halloween because of the potential violent messages it gives off," District Superintendent Craig Tice said in a statement sent to the agency. AFP.

According to school guidelines, "costumes should be neither rugged nor scary so as not to scare younger students."

Tice added that some students had made games " similar " to those in the series. The district oversees three elementary schools for children ages 5-10.

He said the district hopes parents and supervisors will reinforce the school's message that violent sports are not appropriate during the holidays.

The squid game has become the biggest hit in Netflix history, reaching 142 million households in the four weeks since its release in mid-September.

Earlier this month, the streaming platform told investors that products related to the series were going to stores for sale.
