What also really pisses me off is that this fucker is originally from Connecticut.
To those who downvoted my comments – under normal circumstances, I would agree with you and I was pretty torn immediately after posting. But since I couldn’t delete it, there was nothing I could do.
Despite being ambivalent about it, I was also strangely happy that so many of you disliked my comments. I guess that I liked that while I gave in to petty anger, so many more of you didn’t.
Since this guy is quite proud of being from the Harvard Business School, maybe Harvard would like to know about it…
fucking disgusting…nothing funny here
I am… absolutely disgusted. That is amazingly horrible. Wow. Ew.
I think the only one that “doesn’t have a heart” here is this seller….Seriously..what a douchecanoe!
I know this offers nothing to the discussion…but I simply must chime in with FUCK YOU INDEED! FUCK.
I didn’t even notice that it was crafted at “12″ wide x 8″ tall this bag represents a heart for those who don’t have one.” UGH
I’d like to suggest the bastard ‘tragicrafter’ keep this piece of shit to themselves, they obviously HAVE NO HEART. Twenty children from five to ten years old DIED today. Six adults DIED today. How the FUCK can you even remotely think this is acceptable, YOU FUCKING FUCK?
Fuck you, you fucking FUCK!
I want to create a ‘Worst Things Ever’ televised awards show and give this fucker all the trophies.
If you look at the second pic the bonus is that it looks used. A second-hand tragicraft.
I hope by “give the fucking all the trophies” you mean hit them in the face with a lot of trophies!
Oh, for fuck’s sake. They should be banned for life…from life.
This fucker should be bashed senseless with said trophy. Oh wait, seller is already senseless…& tasteless & heartless.
I think the ‘Worst Things Ever’ trophy should be shoved someplace the sun doesn’t shine.
You know, I knew it. I saw a Regretsy post and I said, “Self, someone out there really is awful enough to tragicraft this.” And they are. Jesus.
I was expecting the tragicrafting to hit tomorrow’s post – not THIS soon! oh, for fuck’s sake
FUCK YOU IN THE ASS WITH A FLAMING PINEAPPLE SOAKED IN HOT SAUCE.
This is truly one of the most soulless humans currently stealing our precious oxygen.
That is a TRULY magnificent image. A flaming pineapple soaked in hot sauce. IT’S A DEEP BURN. THE BURN. IT’S SO DEEP!
It’s spelled, “ermahgerd.” TMYK
Oh My dear, it is a well documented fact that the only punishment severe enough for this sort of offense is a glass rod inserted in the urethra and then smashed to bits with a hammer. Once this has been accomplished you hang the offender up and give them poison oak, to be exacerbated, once daily, with a steel wire brush…….or perhaps I’ve gone too far?
That was a most beautiful turn of phrase, Lanus. Just not quite severe enough for this repulsive fucker.
What about a flaming cactus soaked in lemon juice? That should sting quite nicely.
I’m not averse to a little citrus mixed in with the hot sauce.
I’d like the pineapple to be completely infested with velvet ants, if it’s not too much trouble. Fire ants would also be OK.
I’d like the pineapple to have rusty razor blades embedded in it.
AND liberally soaked in E.Coli induced diarrhea!
make that C.Diff – E coli is too nice.
I’d like the pineapple to be… filled with hate! It’s a hate-filled pineapple. With razorblades and fire ants and hot sauce and the jizz of a FOX network executive on it.
Nice one, you Fancy Bastard!
OK, but should a FOX executive get an orgasm out of this? Just think of the poor fire ants (or velvet ants) who’d have to swim in his hellbroth!
hell broth. I love you.
I approve of this plan.
That…also sounds kinda delicious. Fire roasted citrus-pickled nopales.
When I saw the title of this post, I thought “Dear Lord that must be something truly hideous if it’s the worst thing seen on Etsy!” Little did I know it surpassed even my worst imaginings.
Lanus, I love what you did with the pineapple, but here is another suggestion for people to consider; barbed wire enema.
A section of poly pipe is inserted into the anus (lubrication optional) one or more lengths of barbed wire is fed into said pipe (hot sauce, citrus juice or any other caustic liquid is encouraged at this step) then the pipe is removed, leaving behind the barbed wire.
Still, not really punishment enough though is it?
Oh that is just FUCKING GROSS. Seriously?!?!?! Jesus Christ.
Am I blind or is that free? Let’s all order one and bankrupt the exploitative asshole who thought that up.
Unlike the seller, vultures are essential to the ecosystem, and beneficial contributors to disease control.
Their looks and stereotyped reputation are unfortunate.
(educational and humorous TED talk)
this too lol
There’s not even a mention of proceeds being helpful to the community. Can someone report this offensive shit to Etsy?
I have no idea – is it keyword spamming perhaps?
I couldn’t help it, I sent them email.
“Your attempt to capitalize on this tragedy is bad, and you should feel bad.”
I’m thinking about joining Etsy just so I can message that person.
I’ve been a member, (my stuff is just carved soapstone, not enough to live up to Regretsy standards) and I sent him a less than polite message, myself. I encourage others to do the same! Its fun!
As an OT aside, I am the mother of a five year old whose kindergarten classroom is just down from the office. I had to hug him–much to his consternation–so tight almost afraid to let him go. I take some comfort in knowing that the school is built like a rabbit warren, with multiple access points to every room and closets that go between the rooms as well.
Definitely all about the key words – check out other items in their shop – Ravi Shankar, Malala, Fiscal Cliff, etc. Purely and shittily sensationalistic.
I still signed up and sent a message. That is pure ugliness, even if is wrapped up in pure stupidity.
I sent a message.
My favorite is the “Christmas iPad” and “Free Gift” bowties (which are not free), or the fact that the same wallet is posted three times as “Honey Boo Boo Wallet,” “PSY Gangnum Wallet” and “The Voice Wallet.”
The best name in general, though, is “Lance Armstrong Revoke Tribute.”
As sensationalist, spammy and gross as it is, it does offer an interesting window into what is currently occupying the public’s mind.
I emailed them too, its despicable.
Apparently there was a discussion on the Etsy forums about how heinous this is, and get this:
The Etsy admins closed the thread.
I could not hate Etsy more.
Done and done.
There is a “Report this item to Etsy” link which I used. You have to choose from a limited list of reasons- none of which deal with directly with offensive material, strangely. So I chose “inaccurate description” and then complained about the offensiveness in the comments section. “Prohibited item” might also work. I can’t say my hopes are high that Etsy will deal with this. They don’t seem to have much integrity and are haphazard in enforcing their policies..
Fuck them so very much. That purse may as well be dyed with blood.
“this bag represents a heart for those who don’t have one”
Like the person who is capitalizing on the tragedy?
I echo the Fuck You
I’m going to have to respectfully disagree here.
“FUCK YOU” isn’t strong enough.
I second your motion, my friend. I’m thinking the seller used her own heart to craft this disgusting thing.
I agree…I don’t want to wish this guy a fuck…he’d likely want a fuck, in fact he probably desperately needs a fuck because he doesn’t just not give a fuck but he couldn’t get a fuck from a blind, starving hooker even if he had a fistful of benjamins and big macs.
Completely DISGUSTING!!!!!!! Beyond disgusting…..
This.. this is wtf. Echoing the FUCK YOU. No words to even express how pissed this makes me
I want to buy this bag, vomit into it, and return it to the seller.
no. just. no fuck you so fucking hard. this is atrocious.
I would sooner buy every other piece of shit featured on this website and toss it in the garbage than give a penny to this seller if she was on the verge of being evicted from her home.
I don’t know if that made sense. I’m too angry.
Apparently the seller is male. Whatever. I wouldn’t give him my spit if his cock was on fire.
I would put it out with gasoline.
It’s official… NO TRAGEDY IS SACRED!!! NOTHING!
After fuck knows how long without posting on here (what the fuck happened to me?!), I must break my silence and say this, which I mean from the cockles of my heart…
You, “Esteban Espinosa”, are a gigantic fucking twatmong. Go directly to Hell. Do not pass go, do not collect two hundred dollars.
SMITE THEM CAS! SMITE THEM!!
Dear God, how I want to. People — I can’t even call it a person — like this don’t deserve to exist. I don’t care if he — it, whatever — happens to be a troll or not, it’s still unbelievable disrespectful to the lives lost and the people hit by this tragedy to sit here and pull this sort of thing.
I am so angry, I even quoted Alastair.
If I ever met this…thing, I may well wind up punching it in the face.
Godstiel, I wholeheartedly approve of the way you broke your silence. Well said.
Thank you. A damn, terrible shame that this is what caused me to break my silence, however.
I REALLY hope the seller sees this and hopefully other backlash for this. For shame.
You honestly think they’ll care? This is a troll. Trolls live for shit like this.
He’s a shamelessly money-hungry troll, though – hence why all his stuff is named after “trending” news topics. If he gets a backlash in the form of people not buying his shit, he’ll care.
In the form of not people buying his shit? Absolutely.
In the form of verbal outrage? Ain’t gonna happen.
Also, it’s just “hence”, or “that’s why”.
Hearts are breaking all over the world tonight for that community.
No other words, that seller is a grade A cunt.
He is NOT a cunt. He lacks depth, charm, and warmth.
Also lacking: Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent.
Oh, he’s got plenty of nerve. Fully with you on the rest, but there’s definitely nerve.
Cunts can actually be useful. This fucking piece of shit is not.
I would normally try to think of something witty to say, but this time, I just hope that the seller reads these comments and realizes what a fucking greedy, tragedy-mongering piece of shit they really are.
Just when you think you couldn’t lose your faith in humanity any more…
I wish I was a hacker who could get into this person’s accounts and donate all the money to either gun-control groups or grief counseling charities. But I am not, and I do not condone that sort of action. That was said out of anger, as is this: FUCK YOU.
Seriously, this 250-lb guy is about to cry.
FJL hackers, unite!
As deranged and pathetic as tragi-crafting is, this is just naked opportunism to get attention and $14! I guess we’re lucky they didn’t have a necklace made of 26 fucking shell casings lying around.
Yeah, this isn’t tragicrafting, this is keyword spamming. They’re labeling all their products with top news stories. I can’t help but wonder if this is something akin to the tweet about an “Aurora dress” from some stupid knock-off-designer clothing store’s Twitter account.
Aurora is the name of Sleeping Beauty and the film star in “Kiss of the Spider Woman.” I hope it was an unfortunate coincidence.
I was stupid enough to actually believe this would be the one line even the most opportunistic cupcake would not cross and yet here we are. There are three of these assholes trying to make a buck off this tragedy and of course when it was brought up on Etsy, the thread was closed because “we don’t talk about shops and sellers negatively here no matter what they do.”
Fuck you Etsy! Fuck you with a rusted dildo slathered with the sharpest of metal glitter and fuck all those vultures you let behave this way with only a slap on the wrist! I hope the leaves of your earl grey tea are moldy and the milk turns rancid!
For as many times as Etsy folks have derided Regretsians for being heartless, has anyone on Regretsy EVER turned a blind eye to something like this?
I had been building stock to open an Etsy store. Fuck it. I’d rather sell elsewhere.
I am a long time Etsy seller and I’m ashamed….heading over to storenvy or yardsellr or hell even craigslist at this point.
I think you got it right; the ones we should be flooding with hate mail and vitriol are Etsy. THEY might actually do something about it.
This is disgusting. Fuck. The sociopathy is strong in this one, I feel. “Unfortunate crimes”? Fuck, I can’t even…my rage is growing stronger the more I think about it.
If they believed in this in ANY WAY they would atleast say they are donating to a victims support group.
I wish we could send “Fuck You” convos to the seller, but that would make US the bad people.
The whole shop is tagged AND NAMED after trends like 12/12/12, honey boo boo, christmas ipad, and fiscal cliff.
Also April can i have your internet babys?
This is also why I am medicated people!
I sent this right to the seller of the clutch. I don’t give a shit what Etsy does to me…I haven’t got a shop there and this is the most heartless thing I’ve seen.
“Their poor little bodies aren’t even cold and you are willing to march right through their blood in order to make a dollar?
You disgust me.”
the response from the seller…
“Have a heart!”
SERIOUSLY This was it…the total response. They are selling a purse supposedly whipped out in the memory of murdered children not even cold, FOR THEIR OWN PROFIT, and I am the one that needs to “Have a heart!”
‘Have a heart!’, exclamation point and all? For fuck’s sake – maybe that scumbag should take his own advice.
I hope one day this jackass knows the pain the survivors are feeling.
have a heat really how about if you tell them MR.fist would like to pay them a visit.
Hell, this sicko was probably trying to sell you some body parts.
I want to kick this loser’s teeth in.
I think it was their scamming, backhanded way of trying to sell you their ‘heart’ clutch. Definitely a troll. So glad I didn’t see this on the 14th or I would have lost all faith in humanity. I haven’t been on Regretsy for a couple of weeks and have had a tiny bit of time to process so that the troll isn’t getting to me as much as he would have. He’s still the scummiest piece of horrific garbage on the planet, don’t get me wrong.
Shame Shame Shame – Since they obviously have none.
I never log in to my account as I am too lazy. And I forgot the password to it.
So I made a new one just so I could comment and say how utterly AWFUL this is.
Even more disgusting is the person who has tweeted as Sandy Hook Victim. I’m nearly impossible to offend but that person succeeded. This Etsy seller is nearly as bad.
Who the fuck is this hairpile? IT HAPPENED TODAY!!! NOT EVEN YESTERDAY! TODAY. The goddamned blood hasn’t even coagulated, you fucking maggot. Loser. I hope this person doesn’t have kids, because If he/she does, I guarantee they are being raised in the most shitty way humanly possible.
Douche. I can’t believe someone is willing to be that scummy for fourteen fucking dollars. Go overdose on something, asshole.
Let him know what an asshole he is via FB. He’s real easy to find. What a jerk. Actually, jerk is too nice a term for him.
I swear some people are concieved through anal sex.
There is just no other way being that much of an asshole is natural.
oh, you mean here? http://www.facebook.com/esteban.espinosa.524
or over here? http://www.facebook.com/lacasaesteban.espinosa
Apparently they did not keep one for themselves…they have no heart and fuck them.
Fuck ‘em in the ear.
With a 12″ dildo.
Moulded from a donkey.
Wrapped in razor wire.
And smothered in anti-coagulant.
Can it be filled with Japanese hornets?
I am nearly tempted to buy the thing, then send foreward it chain-style to all willing fat jealous losers and we can each put in 1 of our very own handcrafted pieces of shit, then send the clutch with our collective pile of shit back to them.
But even I am not that disgusting.
Also, tragicrafting is an asshole thing to do, so I guess it’s sort of appropriate that this looks like a vinyl diaper.
I might forgive it if it were understated and funds actually supported victims of the tragedy.
This… this is just shameless naked opportunism. I actually don’t know the proper invectives to characterize it, and I cuss nearly constantly (to the delight of my students).
If you read through this wiper’s fb page, the whole thing almost seems like an experiment in how people react to asshole-dom. Too evil to be true, and yet, even more evil for doing so. This guy is meta – asshole.
Wow, not a day has pass and this fuckwad put this in their listing.
Please someone in Florida look up this fucker and kick his ass
reported for vandalism.
I wish I believed in god right now just so I could believe in a hell for this sack of shit.
I hope any friends or family this complete douche nozzle has makes his life hell for this…I certainly wouldn’t be proud to know or be related to him.
…I want this world to fucking die.
“REMOVE THIS WRETCH, AND THROW HIM IN THE SLUG PIT!”
What’d those slugs ever do to you?
I’d suggest a sarlacc pit, but the sarlacc would spit him/her out.
What the hell is wrong with this seller?
I never thought I would say this, but as the mother of an elementary aged child, I have the desire to punch a drag queen!
As vile as this person is, I was somewhat relieved to discover that this was not some bizzare “red tent” moon-cup sort of thing.
This is worse.
Craftards celebrating bodily functions aren’t doing anything all that harmful to anyone else (they’re only shaming themselves and possibly the poor kids in menarche). That sort of kitsch is always open to mockery. But I don’t actually want to punch someone just for putting up red tent items, even if I joke about it.
Buck this bitch. Seriously.
Am I reading this correctly, or am I just drunk?
I saw that too. I reported all those listing as well.
So it’s a $5 donation…with a $15 handling fee? There must be a special place in hell for assholes like these.
I guess the $15 is for shipping and FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU
Come on…this doesn’t even fucking make sense. Donate $5 to a $20 listing. It will go to the victims of the tragedy by purchasing a book for a child. Huh? I’m not connecting the parts. If the book or toy is for the victims families, I’m sure the last thing they want is a gift for their dead child. Heart broken today…so much.
I’m thinking it’s for the kids who were there when the shooting happened but weren’t killed, instead they just know that their classmates or friends died. They are victims too, I think.
Actually it looks like a mistake. She has a listing for a $5 donation for $5, I’d bet she copied and pasted her item descriptions (which actually is a huge timesaver) and forgot that there was a price in there. I messaged her about it, it’s possible that she really is collecting money for care packages.
Of course from the handbag example we’ve seen that it’s more than likely for people to be scum sucking wastes of life who capitalize off the deaths of children. Guess we’ll see if she changes it or not.
Total bullshit for sellers to be taking “donations.” Did they wave a magic wand and instantly become a charitable organization.
Probably similar to the way Regretsy does, they collect the money, put together the packages and send them. Of course it depends completely on who the person is, there’s no way to really have them checked out so they could be sitting on all the money they collect and sending you a picture of a random kid.
The listings have the right dollar amounts now, she changed them.
Looks like that seller got the boot. Adios, asshole!
It looks like Etsy took down both the item and the whole store, based on that link you provided – so I guess we can assume that it really is a scam, she didn’t just make a mistake.
Not just the store, the seller’s entire account is gone.
Whoops, Etsy sellers aren’t allowed to solicit donations.
“Listings created solely to solicit for donations are not permitted. All listings on Etsy must be for a tangible item available for sale.”
Under the Etsy do’s and dont’s.
Actually the store was mine. I took it down because I cried after I read the reaction ppl had to what I was trying to do. I have struggle with infertility for almost four years and my heart broke for these children…and broke even.more seeing the condiment and judgement tossed my way for a typo. My 5 for 5 listing was correct. I made a mistake.
No. I took it down because of this post. Do you know how embarrassing this was? I was heartbroken for these children and wanted to help the only way I knew how. I was making dozens of Teddy’s to send and wanted to give ppl the opportunity to send things to. I made a typo.
Well at least he took the Etsy forum advice to “read up on SEOs”.
I read this, left it, and came back still full of angry. If anyone here needs to get a heart in light of something this inhumane, it’s the person who would tragicraft off it for profit, and apparently not give a damn.
Because after crying and feeling sick for those families who don’t get to take their babies home, who don’t get to wake up from their worst nightmare, after holding my own babies and wishing things in this world could somehow be undone, the first thing I want to do is BUY A CRAPPY HANDBAG. Tell me how that piece of crap is supposed to salve the wounds of this day? This seller is awful. Shame on them.
From a young age, I was taught that when a child died, the Universe cried out in anguish. As a mother myself (though my sons are now adults), i used to have nightmares about something like this happening to them. How ANYBODY could think this is an appropriate reaction to the situation is beyond me.
May he mysteriously choke on his own shitty tragicrafted handbag. Nothing will be lost.
Jegus. The blood hasn’t even had time to fucking dry. How can you craft that quickly?
I’m guessing they just grabbed the first thing that looked roughly blood-colored and slapped Connecticut on it.
Someone at least tell me the Fb account is fake. Please?
This just reminded me of my diabolical plan to kill all fucking idiots. I put it on the back burner for a while but now, I think I might hunt this guy down and run him over with my car. Someone buy the cheapest thing in his shop so I can have his address. I need to save my money for the gas to drive to Florida. Ugh. Piece of shit. I hope someone fucks him in the ass. Oh wait, I think he’s in to that. I’ll put some barbed wire in his pee hole before I run him over instead.
Can you tell I’m pissed?
Fuck you Etsy vultures.
Fuck you and the horse you rode in on.
Fuck you and everybody that LOOKS like you.
Fuck you and your little dog, too.
If this guy wants to be an asshole, I don’t see what’s stopping us from being even bigger assholes. Everyone buy one item from his shop, and NOT pay. Send a message loud and clear, you act like an asshole, you will be treated like one.
Oh that’s evil *rubs hands together and contemplates the idea* 3:)
“If this guy wants to be an asshole, I don’t see what’s stopping us from being even bigger assholes” is the entrance to a waterslide, only instead of water, it’s canola oil. In other words, a damned slippery slope.
I agree with you Mistletoe, that was just my kneejerk reaction. Now that my rational mind has taken over, it’s best to just to move on. Not that irrational mind still doesn’t want this guy to burn.
Not sure what’s worse…this stupid POS or the fact that it’s already on a goddamn treasury list!
So embarrassed that I have an Etsy shop.
FUCK YOU YOU MOTHERFUCKING FUCK and that goes for all the asshats that take advantage of the Newtown tragedy.
He fellow regretsy-ites, is there any way we can forward all of our angry comments to this douchenozzle?
Someone posted his facebook page above in the comments, that’s what happens when you use your full name in your Etsy account and then do something terrible. I’d send it there, send a convo at his Etsy page, and send it to his business facebook account (which is also posted above). Depending on if you’re willing to spend that much time on it.
Crazybabes was the one who found it. I’d recommend reporting his business account, facebook may force him to change it to a business page, which people are allowed to comment on. Including fat jealous losers who apparently don’t have hearts.
That actually sounds like a really awesome idea. I have no desire to get into a Facebook message war with a complete stranger who is also a scum-sucking douchenozzle, but I think if we mass-report his business account, that could actually do something.
How do I do that?
Go to his fb page, there will be an arrow towards the right hand side top. Click on that and hit “report/block” and click report the timeline, the next page has a list of reasons to report it, the bottom one being that the account represents a business.
I am gobsmacked. On the off chance that fuk’n oxygen thief reads this may I say:
you are a hollow man, you low life fucking maggot.
I live in Newtown Sydney, please drop by sometime so I can give you some special counselling.
I’ll hold him down while you counsel him.
Quotes from Esteban (the most classiest man in the world):
“@ 10:30 LaCasaEsteban on etsy.com had 60 views, the most in a day yet!!!!!!!”
“LaCasaEsteban on etsy.com is up to 75 hits…”
“Thanks everyone for giving today’s product 120 views to LaCasaEsteban on etsy.com”
“Esteban just may change his drag name to Sandy Hook”
“144 views for LaCasaEsteban on etsy.com because I’m a capitalist!”
He seems to have a misunderstanding of what the word capitalist means.
It is a little sad to be so joyfully crowing at <200 views of a product in a single day when you consider what he had to do to achieve such dizzying heights. In the past people who sold their soul to Satan for riches and fame actually got a little something out of the deal. I guess you get out of a deal what you put into it.
The best part is going to be when he realizes that he got several hundred views, several hundred pieces of hate mail, several hundred complaints to etsy/facebook, and not a single sale.
I think the person (I use that term loosely) we’re dealing with here was looking for shock value from the get-go. The items in their shop and their comments and behavior seem to indicate negative attention-seeking and general douchebaggery on a five-alarm scale. We are probably talking about the type of cuntwagon who sits at their comp letting the hate roll in and pees a little with excitement. People go so far to become this ‘edgy’ thick-skinned ‘troll’ persona that honest to God it’s like they live for this kind of stuff.
As Judge Judy likes to say, the bullies of the world may not always get what’s coming to them on time, but what comes around goes around. Or, as George Carlin always used to say, “Some people are really fuckin’ stupid.”
This person is just all kinds of evil. I seriously want him and his pathetic leather-crafting enterprise to vanish off the face of the Earth.
Today, I am no longer a sad girl…
Today, I am a PISSED OFF ONE
Like April said in the original post, FUCK YOU AND THE CELLAR THAT YOU CRAWLED FROM YOU PRIMORDIAL BOTTOM FEEDER.
Includes free shipping worldwide. Can someone in a really remote country please buy this so this dickwad has to pay more than $14 shipping and loses money on this?
I know someone in Uganda that works at the post office in his town. Maybe I can get him to do it. Shipping there for this piece of crap would be like $16 or something. Maybe it will “go missing”…
I borderline considered ordering it and sending it to my father’s friend in Beijing for the same reason. Or ordering it and returning it covered in itching powder. Or ordering it and then giving really negative feedback about its quality or something along those lines.
…But as much as I would enjoy all those things, he’d still get my $14, and I just can’t bring myself to do it.
I can’t bring myself to do it either. Supporting that behavior just makes him think that he has a one-up on everyone else. I say we find someone with terrible diarrhea in his neighborhood to poop on his doorstep like Bear Grylls does on the side of mountains.
If it wasn’t winter, I’d buy it, rub it in poison ivy then return it.
winter does not kill the oil on poison ivy – go drag that f*cker through a big ol’ patch!
Well, I’m also breaking my silence of lurking to comment on this shitstain of humanity. Oh, and my resolution not to swear! That lasted almost the entire year too! Thanks, etsy, you’re a douche canoe. DOUCHE CANOE MOTHERFUCKER.
Yep, making up for eleven months of not swearing with this bastard.
I heard about the shooting after I came home from college, as everything was disconnected while I was packing for break. In other words, I heard about it two, maybe three, hours ago. And then I see this.
Who does this? What emotionless MONSTER makes a CLUTCH after a school shooting of such magnitude?
I want to wish a thousand monstrosities upon this creature, but even that would give it the idea to capitalize on the misery.
…words are insufficient for just how awful this seller is. It’s one thing to tragicraft as a way of dealing with your own grief – it’s another entirely to shamelessly exploit someone else’s tragedy to further your own business interests.
Pity I can’t do more than fire off some stern wording and report his FB page; but given the chance I wouldn’t do anything personally – I’d hand him over to all the families directly affected, along with an exposé on his dastardliness. I’m pretty sure THOSE families would be capable of a lot more rage than us horrified onlookers.
And the worst part? The seller’s still less of a shitgolem than Bryan Fischer.
Yeah Mike Huckabee went this way too. I’m not a Christian myself and don’t believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ but I 100% would die happy if he came down from the heavens and punched these two turdburglars right in the ballsacks and said a really cool pre-mortem oneliner like, “Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again, BUT YOU NEVER WILL.”
…alright, so that wasn’t the best. It’s a work in progress.
Ooh, shitgolem, I like that.
“YOU’RE SO FULL OF BULLSHIT IT HAS A LIFE OF ITS OWN!”
Dear God. I’m not very religious myself (though I included prayers last night for the murdered and their families) but self righteous assholes like Bryan Fischer disgust and amaze me. Obviously lacks any sense of empathy. Or humanity.
And LaCasaFuckhead lives about thirty minutes south of me, it’s a suburb of Orlando. Dr. Philips is a nice area, old money, with expensive restaurants and stores. But I guess trash like the seller can exist anywhere.
I’m very religious and I absolutely agree that Mike Huckabee and Bryan Fischer are shitstains. I can’t really think of a worse thing to say at a time like this.
He’s responding to individual comments? There has to be a way to use that. Dating scam amyone?
Incidentally, in a ‘How can we help?’ article, I discovered two groups in Newtown that are providing counseling and whose donations will go directly to helping the victims of the tragedies. (CBS and HuffingtonPost both vetted them and they are indeed on the up-and-up.) They are
‘Have a heart.’ Yeah I do, that’s why I’m sending my $14 their way instead. I hope they make a rule against tragicrafting, I know the hoping is in vain but I really truly do. There’s literally no need for it and it can’t be making them nearly as much cash than wholesellers/resellers. Plus, just, ugh.
It’s a never ending race to the bottom, every time. The fact that people still amaze me with the amount of douche in their canoes, amazes me.
This made me so saddened and enraged. I felt the need to check on my own child in bed and I woke him up accidentally. I tried to sing him a lullaby but then he told me “Mom I am Ten! Can you sing me some Johnny Cash?”
Your kid is AWESOME!
My kids used to request Bruce Springsteen. Also, “American Pie.”
Thanks to you and your kid for actually making me smile.
I signed up for etsy just so I could contact this seller. When it came time to write the message, all I could think to say what “fuck you you sick fucking fuck fuck you fuck fuck you” i’m usually nont one short for words on an insult. I just couldn’t think of anything bad enough to say, wish I read some of these comments for ideas earlier.
Maybe i’ll try again.
I’m just really angry and then this thought came to me “There…there will be more of these tragic crafters soon…” and i had to start drinking at 8:05am
I messaged this turd to tell him that if it sells and he’s not a complete immoral douche, he’d better donate every cent to a fund for the victim’s families. His highly intelligent reply? “You spelled imoral wrong”
Yes, his brilliant reply to my message was that I should go hug my cat (I sell cat toys).
Well, since this guy seems to be thriving on the hate we have have to stop feeding him and change the dialogue over to what we do best: viscous mockery. I’ll start.
Cutting off your own distended syphilic scrotum, shaving it and sticking a scrunchie and a button on it was the best possible use for your scrotum. I know the only reason you didn’t add your testes to it was you couldn’t find them but your dick would have made a fine loop on the inside of the purse for tampon storage so next time think it through.
This is absolutely a sickening, sociopathic, opportunistic piece of shit excuse for a human being and deep down I would not weep if he steps on a Lego, then trips, then falls down so that his asshole lands on/around a Lego tower.
That said, I think just about the most useless (and possibly even counterproductive) thing to do is to contact the seller. It’s evident that the seller WANTS to shock, wants a reaction, wants lots of eyes, and believes strongly that there’s no such thing as bad publicity. You will not shame him. You will not embarrass him. You will not put him in his place. At no point will he ever see the error of his ways and repent.
Imagine if he got NO hits to his shop. NO comments on his Facebook. No tweets. If he faded silently into obscurity. Imagine the scene in 12 Angry Men when the jurors stand up and turn their backs on the blathering idiot. THAT might actually have an effect.
Being ignored would piss him off but good!
The geek in me loves the Klingon version of ‘ignore.’ Undoubtedly stolen from “12 Angry Men.” Make a circle around him and one by one, cross your arms over your chest and smartly turn on your heels to turn your back to him. Speaks volumes. YOU have been put on ‘ignore!’
Millions of views and no sales is pretty good though
I’ll say it again: he’s a troll. He lives for ATTENTION. He’ll get by without $14.00.
Here in the UK a couple of months ago one of our well loved popstars suffered the tragedy of his baby girl being stillborn. A minus Z lister whose only claim to fame was being (briefly) on Big Brother many years ago decided to post vile tweets about the death of the baby just to get attention. To him (and I would not even give him the publicity of naming him) any attention was good even while people wanted to cause him serious harm. This piece of shit probably wants to cause the same reaction and is no doubt lapping up the attention. Don’t give it to him.
My thoughts are with everyone involved – how can anyone, no matter how disturbed they are, shoot small children?
well his “call me Sandy Hook” ad strategy works great….almost 6500 views and not a thing in his store has sold.
And now there’s a treasury
Let’s *not* make money off tragedy?
At least it looks like everything in that treasury except this asshole’s thing are just items that coincidentally have the name Newtown in them or were created before this happened? The decal lister also notes that she will be sending 100% of proceeds to the families. So at least it’s not an entire treasury of scum.
Looks like the treasury is gone.
Wow. I think we are dealing with a textbook-case Psychopath in this seller.
Ugh, just UGH.
I’m going to go off in pictures here. I am trying to control my anger.
Here, everybody take one.
Anderson Cooper seems to be the media voice of reason these days. I think he’d have a lot to say about this.
Now all I want for Christmas is this guy’s two front teeth. On a little velvet pillow, after I’ve been allowed to kick them out.
And I don’t normally indulge in violent fantasies on the Internet. I’m a mild-mannered suburban pregnant lady.
Also he has a Malala Yousefzai bag.
Seriously. This guy is like the commercial version of the Westboro “Baptists”. Nothing is safe from his vileness.
Since they plan on picketing in CT, maybe we should tell Esteban. He can work the line and try to sell the commemorative bags. The could potentially neutralize each other.
you guys are either too bored or not too smart
this is not tragicrafting, it’s trolling
and man, did it work. sigh.
I hope he comes back as my horse.
This is truly horrible. I do realize people may be selling some of their items donating 100% of profits to charities that way, but the way this is worded is worse than horrible. I know this was put into a forum thread and the thread itself was shut down. Which is how I found it.
This makes me so sad and tired, and angry in a quiet sort of way. It makes me want to kill myself, if only to never see this kind of shit again, but I cannot give this person the satisfaction.
