eBay has officially banned the “Django Unchained” slave toys from being sold on the Internet shopping hub.
After the Weinstein Company announced the release of the figurines, immediately outspoken activists and black consumers expressed outrage, charging the creators of trivializing enslavement.
Thus the company halted production, but still put the toys out on the market.
At first eBay posted the figurines as “rare collectibles,” prompting a frenzy of bids.
But just this week the figurines were taken down and a notice was posted with the following message:
“Since the manufacturer of this product has discontinued the item’s sale due to its potentially offensive nature, we are not allowing it to be sold on eBay.”
