Dr. Seuss’ “canceled” books are becoming rarer by the minute.
EBay is barring users from reselling the six Dr. Seuss books that will no longer be printed due to their “racist” imagery — a move that comes after the books started going for hundreds of dollars on the auction site.
“EBay is currently sweeping our marketplace to remove these items,” an eBay spokeswoman told the Wall Street Journal in an email.
The announcement comes after Dr. Seuss Enterprises, which publishes the author’s books for Penguin Random House, said it would no longer print six titles — “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” “If I Ran the Zoo,” “McElligot’s Pool,” “On Beyond Zebra!,” Scrambled Eggs Super!,”
Chizad said he tried to sell a copy of “And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street” on eBay only to get an “offensive material” message Thursday.
“We had to remove your listing because it didn’t follow our Offensive material policy,” the message said. “Listings that promote or glorify hatred, violence, or discrimination aren’t allowed.”
Chizad’s selling fees were refunded “as a courtesy,” the message said.
