Items From Kobe Bryant’s Memorial Pulled From eBay for Policy Violations

ebay stops kobe bryant memorial item sales

eBay has reportedly shut down vendors who have been profiting or looking to profit off the death of late basketball icon Kobe Bryant by prohibiting the sale of items from Bryant’s memorial service.


The prohibition arises from the company’s policy which stops people from profiting off “human tragedy or suffering.”

“Please note, due to sudden and tragic passing of Kobe Bryant – eBay has made the decision to prohibit the sale of merchandise, images and mugs relating to their passing,” eBay allegedly said in emails sent to people whose items have been taken down.

Per TMZ, shirts, pins, and other items from Monday’s event were placed on eBay with bids reaching excessive resale prices. One shirt from the ceremony was reportedly sold for over $2,000.
