Enterprising trash monsters are already exploiting the Pulse shooting on Amazon

Really, really tasteful.

Our columnist Seth Kubersky sent this pic via Facebook chat just now and unfortunately we then went to search "Pulse shooting" on Amazon.

Don't do that, unless you like to be reminded that the world is full of garbage monsters who are trying to cash in on tragedy by selling everything from T-shirts to buttons to coffee mugs to, yes, UNDERPANTS emblazoned with "Pulse Nightclub," "We Are Orlando," "In Remembrance" and so on and so forth. Are any of these entrepreneurial wastes of skin donating cash to victims funds? A few might be – we stopped looking after five or so when it felt like we might barf on our keyboards – but most don't even make a pretense of it.



As Kubersky said, "We are officially adding another stage of grief: exploitation." Nice work, world, we thought you couldn't get any worse.
