Jim Carrey Backlash on eBay for His Anti-Gun Video Mysteriously Disappears

•, by Paul Bond
 A clever eBay user started a trend: selling Jim Carrey paraphernalia by advertising that proceeds for the sale will be used to purchase a gun.
The phenomenon started when an eBay user going by the name of  “astrobuzz”  listed a “Jim Carrey Autographed 8X10 Photo So I Can Afford a Gun!”

The listing, explained the user, was in response to Carrey’s Funny or Die video in which he disparages gun owners, Second Amendment advocates and deceased Oscar winning-actor Charlton Heston, who once headed the NRA.

The item for sale is a black-and-white photo of Carrey with the inscription, “Spank you very much!” and is an autographed reprint. While identical items on eBay sell for about $8 and rarely attract more than a couple of bids, astrobuzz had attracted a hefty 103 bidders who by Wednesday afternoon had driven the price up to $860.
