[Movies] Django Unchained Action Figures Banned From eBay
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.24.2013



TMZ reports that if you want to find one of the discontinued Django Unchained slave toys on eBay, you're out of luck because they've been banned from the website.

The Weinstein Company that originally produced the film, discontinued the figures after backlash from African-American advocacy groups. After the toy company ceased production, the toys began to appear on eBay as "rare" collectibles and bids began to increase.

Last night, all of the listings were removed. eBay said in an email to sellers: "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."

They told the sellers not to re-list the items. A representative for the website said: "These [toys] were removed as they were in violation of our Offensive Materials policy."
