Nipsey Hussle‘s friends, family, and fans took to the Staples Center to pay their final respects on Thursday morning. Although tickets to the event were free, some people were quick to try to sell them on eBay for a couple dollars. Now, even after his memorial, there’s certain people still looking to capitalize and make a profit from his passing.
According to TMZ, the free memorial service programs from Nipsey’s Celebration of Life at the Staples Center are being sold at high prices. Programs from Nipsey’s service are selling on the auction site for up to $1,000, with one ending Friday morning at $500. Sellers started posting the free memorial programs right after the service ended.
However, a spokesperson from eBay has already come forward to say how they’re not going to go with this, and will crack down on sellers.
“These booklets are prohibited under eBay’s policies. Any items that attempt to profit from human tragedy or suffering are not allowed to be sold on eBay,” the spokesperson said.
