After finding itself in hot water, Home Depot Canada is yanking a peeping Tom Halloween decoration that one customer said "makes light of a real-life, sinister issue that women face in our society," CBC News reported.

Following the complaint, Home Depot said it planned to remove the decoration from its shelves.

On its website, Home Depot writes that the 'Scary Peeper Creeper's' "realistic face looks just like a real man is peering through the window at you."
