Today, some Americans celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day and honor the nation’s greatest civil rights leader.
Others…not so much.
Take eBay bidders for instance.
Django Unchained action figures were discontinued last week after some people became deeply offended at selling slavery action figures, thereby trivializing and commercializing one of the country’s darkest eras.
Banning a toy, of course, makes it rare and valuable.
A quick look at eBay this afternoon shows numerous auctions featuring the discontinued Django toys — some drawing bids of hundreds and even thousands of dollars on MLK Day of all days.
This six-piece set of Django figures sold for a staggering $6,000.
