An e-commerce platform has continued to sell merchandise that promotes racism, anti-Semitism and white supremacy after being asked to remove the items from its website. GearBubble, a Las Vegas-based e-commerce platform that allows businesses to sell products online, has been endorsed by “Shark Tank” investor and entrepreneur Kevin O’Leary, NFL legend Terrell Owens and entrepreneur Bethenny Frankel, among other celebrity figures. The website currently has available for sale various mugs, pillowcases and apparel that feature Adolf Hitler, the Nazi “death’s head” symbol, swastikas, “Heil Hitler” insignias, the neo-Nazi black sun and white-power symbols, as well as other neo-Nazi and fascist symbols. (…) The Counter Extremism Project (CEP), a nonpartisan advocacy organization, was the first to notice the anti-Semitic and racist items. CEP wrote a letter to GearBubble CEO Donald Wilson on Feb. 4, informing him of the merchandise and asking GearBubble to suspend the accounts that posted the objects. In the letter, CEP noted that the items violate Gearbubble’s terms and conditions, which state that nothing can be posted on the website that is “false, defamatory, misrepresenting, infringes on any other entity’s intellectual property or would interfere with or restrict any other user from using the site. This includes, but is not limited to, posting anything unlawful, obscene, libelous, indecent, invasive of privacy, intellectual property infringement or anything that would cause the potential for civil liability or criminal charges.” More than two months later, CEP still has not received any response from GearBubble. The items remain listed online.
