A few days after the Kobe Bryant memorial that was held at Staples Center, items from the memorial began popping up on eBay for sale. With this being such a tragic accident that impacted people worldwide, these items are highly sought after and began selling for thousands of dollars. eBay noticed this and began pulling these items claiming that it is against their policy to sell these items. Their regulations prohibit people from profiting from human tragedy or suffering. eBay stated, "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."
