UPDATE: eBay have now removed these items from sale.



UPDATE: After being notified of these listings, eBay have removed the items from sale.

Someone is selling items from Chester Bennington's funeral on eBay.

People who attended the service on Saturday, July 29 were given memorial packages containing the funeral program, a memorial pass, a wristband and a pin. The top bid for one set is currently at over 50,000 dollars.

It should go without saying that attempting to profit from someone's death is completely unacceptable. Clearly, this is total bullshit, and we sincerely hope that eBay see sense and remove these items immediately.

Chester's bandmate Mike Shinoda recently said it better than we could: "If you're gonna buy merch in honor of Chester, consider who the purchase benefits. Don't give money to scumbag bootleggers & opportunists."

If you want to help support Chester's family and bandmates, or make a purchase is his memory, Linkin Park's merch store is here.  The band are setting up a One More Light Fund in honour of Chester, and you can find out more here.
