Django Slave Toys Also Banned From Ebay

Don't count on finding one of those discontinued "Django Unchained" slave toys on eBay any time soon, the action figures have now been banned from the auction website.

The Weinstein Company (which produced the film) discontinued the promotional figurines in response to a massive backlash from several African-American advocacy groups.

After the toy company halted production, the toys began to pop up on eBay as "rare" collectibles ... and bids skyrocketed.

But last night, all the listings for the "Django" toys were yanked from the website -- and eBay explained itself to sellers with an email, saying, "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.”

eBay also cautioned the sellers not to re-list the items.

A rep for the auction website confirmed the story, telling us, "These [toys] were removed as they were in violation of our Offensive Materials policy."

SLAVE CHARACTERS. Damn white people will find every inch to justify their desires even if it is offensive.

Yes, slave characters, I know what you're saying. Jesus Christ. I'm trying to discuss what I'm saying and you're not even considering it. Your mind is just closed off to everything, isn't it?

I'm not white either, you dunce.

I'm Asian, so I dunno where the fuck I should take my seat. But I agree. They're dolls. Whatever. If you're gonna role play some weird shit with them, that's your issue. You should the stuff me and my sister did to barbie and her friends.
