Jim Carrey: eBay Autographs Are Fake (At Least ‘A Lot’ Of Them)By: Chris Crum - March 29, 2013
eBay member astrobuzz listed a Jim Carrey autographed 8×10 photo for sale, saying, “So I can afford a gun!” in the listing’s heading. This was in response to the recent Funny or Die viral hit “Cold Dead Hand,” in which Jim Carrey starred as Charlton Heston.
eBay has not commented on the story, but it appears astrobuzz was forced to change the listing to comply with eBay’s terms. As The Hollywood Reporter reports:
As of late Wednesday, the description for the Carrey photo being sold by astrobuzz read: “I’m selling this Jim Carrey autographed B&W photo (mint condition) for purposes I cannot explain because it might be against eBay’s Terms & Conditions.”
The listing appears to have changed again. The description currently says:
I’m trying to sell this 8X10 Autograph reprint photo of Jim Carrey for personal reasons. >;)Happy Bidding!P.S. I have followed all the ebay policy conditions this time and the auction should make it to the end.
It has no mention of guns.
Other sellers have started to imitate the listing. Here’s one from member paradisecarwash:
The listing’s description is as follows:
I am selling this Jim Carrey photo
Jim carrey Is a despicable hypocrite and I will no longer support him
I am also willing to donate some of the proceeds
Meanwhile, Jim Carrey has been quite active on Twitter:
