UPDATE 6/2/2017 3:42 P.M. EST: eBay has released an official statement regarding these disgusting listings:
“This listing of those items are completely against eBay rules and we are determined to prevent anyone from profiting unfairly from the tragedy in Manchester. Our teams have been working around the clock to prevent listings of this kind, and we’ll continue to ban listings and suspend sellers who attempt to circumvent our policies.”
Way to go, eBay!
Some seriously morally bankrupt people are selling tickets to Ariana Grande‘s benefit concert for Manchester victims for profit on eBay!
A fan alerted us to the super shady goings-on via Twitter, showing that the tickets for “One Love Manchester” were being sold for as much as 400 pounds (about $516)! See the evidence (below)!

So fucked up!
As we previously reported, the concert featuring such stars as Justin Bieber and Katy Perry in the lineup sold out in only SIX minutes. Obviously a lot of people want to go. And this whole selling-on-eBay thing is especially evil considering that this is a benefit for victims of a horrific attack AND it keeps real fans from being able to attend. We just can’t!
Supposedly, Ticketmaster UK is keeping its eyes on these resellers, saying they would “cancelling tickets of those who are reselling wherever possible.”
Shame on these resellers!
