‘Novelty’ t-shirts and mugs featuring mass murderers Fred and Rose West are for sale on eBay.
The t-shirts and mugs with the pair pictured and the slogan ‘Westlife’ are selling for £13.99 and £8.99.
Multiple human remains were found Fred and Rose West house in Gloucester in 1992 and he was charged with the murder of 12 women, including that of his first wife and eldest daughter.
West committed suicide on New Year’s Day in 1995 and then wife was convicted of 10 murders at Winchester prison in November 1995 and is now serving life.
One proud owner of a ‘Westlife’ t-shirt told Metro.co.uk most people find ‘it funny’.
The Birmingham father said: ‘I love wearing controversial t-shirts, I think it goes back to being a young wanna-be punk.
‘The vast majority of people find the ‘Westlife’ t-shirt funny, but I do get some tut tuts. I got a worse reaction during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee when I wore my sex pistols style Queen’s head t-shirt with the logo ’60 years of benefit scrounging.’
‘It got a bit downright hostile at Birmingham Airport, I loved it, but I get nothing like that reaction with the ‘Westlife’ t-shirt.’
Other ‘joke’ and ‘novelty’ items featuring serial killers on eBay include ‘Carry On Doctor’ t-shirts with a picture of Harold Shipman, the British GP who killed over 200 patients, and ‘Let’s Meet For Lunch’ Jeffrey Dahmer, who dismembered 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991 in America, shirts.
A spokesman for eBay said: ‘We work with the police and regulators to ensure that all of our listings comply with the law.
‘All items will be removed from the site.’
On Thursday eBay suspended a seller on its site for selling a mug showing Maddie McCann as a skeleton.
