Ebay has removed the listing of Glenn Beck's urine in a jar with a President Obama toy inside. Before it was taken down, the controversial listing had gotten bids of upwards of $11,300.
"Stop the Censorship!" supporters of Beck immediately wrote online.
But Ebay says the listing's take down is not a political statement. According to a spokesman for the auction and shopping website, the sale of human bodily fluids violates Ebay's terms of service, as does the sale of other body products such as blood, waste products and eggs.
Beck listed the jar Monday in reaction to a painting called "Truth" that depicts Obama as Jesus Christ, which recently went on display in Boston. The stunt was explained on Beck's web site the Blaze as "irony," intended to "highlight the hypocrisy of those who would shout in defiance at defacing the image of a sitting U.S. president, but not that of an image so sacred to Christianity."
In response to the listing's removal, Beck wrote on Twitter: ".@ebay has removed our recent listing. Who will auction #ObamainPeePee?"
So far, no takers.
