Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly have come under fire -- again -- for their Halloween costumes.

The loved-up celebrity couple are no strangers to controversial wardrobe decisions.

However, their most recent get-up - a Roman Catholic-inspired look - has provoked the ire of quite a few followers, who have accused them of being "disrespectful".

Fox and MGK - real name Colson Baker - took to Instagram to share their outfits in a racy post. MGK donned black and red priest's robes, while his actor fiance wore latex lingerie, fishnet tights, and a chain leash.

"On Sunday's we take communion," Fox captioned the post, in which she can be seen kneeling down as MGK feeds her a communion wafer.

The rocker also shared a video of their matching look, captioning it: "God bless you."

It wasn't long before the comments section was flooded with criticism from people who felt the outfits were deeply inappropriate.

"I'm not catholic but this is so WRONG AND SO MANY WAYS making fun of religion," one person wrote, adding: "Respect required respect so you guys lost mine."

"Unacceptable. No one should ever mock someone else’s religion," another commented while a fourth wrote: "This is just distasteful and I’m an atheist."

"Let this be mocking ANY other religion/worldview and everyone would be so upset. I swear the obsession with mocking Jesus and the Christian faith is just so sickening and hateful," a fourth commented.

Another took particular issue with the fact that MGK and Fox had flaunted to costumes to their younger audiences. "You should be ashamed of yourselves. Putting this on social media (knowing the platform you both have)! Great stand-up content for your children to see," they wrote.

This is not the first time the couple has been criticized for their Halloween costumes.

After dressing up as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, they were slammed for "romanticizing" a "toxic" relationship.

Anderson and Lee's relationship went south after one of their sex tapes was stolen and distributed by an electrician in 1996, and Lee was arrested following a physical altercation with Anderson.

Per a 1998 report by the LA Times, Lee was sentenced to six months in Los Angeles County Jail for assaulting his then-wife Anderson.
