PressBee - Russia Today :
The news that people are selling Kobe Bryant memorial souvenirs on eBay has for some reason been greeted with incredulity despite the amount of fake grief we have seen since the basketball star’s death last month.
Some of those in attendance at the public memorial service to Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Monday have put items on eBay – including ticket stubs, program booklets and T-shirts – for thousands of dollars.
“One seller listed an official Kobe shirt from the memorial – and after receiving 76 bids, it sold for $2,025!” screamed one US media outlet the day after the event.
People are hawking Kobe Bryant memorial souvenirs – but with so much fake mourning, what did we expect?
