‘Homophobic’ eBay ad for car removed after bid of £500,000An eBay listing for a 13-year-old Ford Fiesta that had been widely shared due to its colourful and controversial description has been removed from the auction site.
An anti-homophobia charity called it ‘offensive’ because the seller had used ‘homophobic’ terms within it.
Despite having 103,000 miles on the clock, the second-hand vehicle had rung up a price tag of at least half a million pounds – despite the listing having six days left.
In the advert, 21-year-old Jamie Rogers, from Chelmsford, Essex, said: ‘You can’t become a man until you’ve owned a proper lads car, so if you don’t buy this Zetec S you will always be spotty, your voice will never break properly and you will never beat your addiction to masturbation.’
He added: ‘If you’re a parent looking for a car on behalf of your son, this is the car for you. If you’re 35 years old still living at home and yet to be touched intimately by a woman, then this car is not for you, f****t.
