"I am SO sorry to people I offended with my costume," she tweeted. "It was not properly thought through and I am truly, from the bottom of my [heart] sorry."

The Pretty Little Liars star is known for documenting day-to-day happenings on her Instagram account — and her search for the perfect Halloween costume in 2015 was no exception. Benson posted a pic of herself in a lion costume with the caption: "Help! Can't decide on my Halloween costume this year! What do you guys think of this Cecil the Lion costume?" The post was met with outrage from commenters, considering the look was inspired by the illegal killing of a famous lion in Zimbabwe. "I recognize that I am responsible for everything posted on my social accounts and this was an unfortunate oversight," she wrote on Instagram, apologizing to her fans. "I am a supporter of Animal conservation and I will be donating all proceeds of this deal to the World Wildlife Fund. I love you all and I apologize if I let you down."
