Dad defends dressing son as Hitler for Halloween, then apologizes for poor decision

OWENSBORO, Ky. –  A Kentucky dad found himself in hot water on social media with what most people would seem to agree is a poor choice of Halloween costume.

Bryant Goldbach dressed himself as a Nazi solder and his school-aged son as Adolf Hitler before going to a Trunk-or-Treat event Thursday evening. The news was first reported by WEHT Eyewitness News.

He later posted a photo of himself on Facebook and the backlash was immediate.

Goldbach apologized, saying it was a poor decision on his part and that his intention was simply to portray historical figures.
