This is why we can’t have nice things. Free tickets for Nipsey Hussle’s Celebration of Life service in Los Angeles sold out within an hour on Tuesday. Not too long after, the tickets showed up for sale on eBay.
One person sold 4 tickets for $400. Selling free tickets for profit violates eBay’s terms of service. eBay also has a “human tragedy” policy which bans users from profiting off of someone else’s suffering.
eBay has shut down the sale of the tickets but passes to the event have also popped up on other sites. T.I. commented on the people scalping tickets calling them, “Y’all no morals, no standards having, no self respect a** ni**as!!!!”
Fans and celebs speak out on the selling of Nipsey’s funeral tickets.

nipsey’s funeral is free and people out here selling tickets? y’all are fucking pathetic.— Soft (@markiarosee) April 9, 2019
Nipsey Hussle’s family & friends were kind enough to open his funeral to the public and y’all found a way to profit off of it by selling his FREE tickets. I’m disgusted.— Shantae (@ShantaeB) April 9, 2019
It’s unfortunate that people would think to sell tickets when the family opened the services up to everyone. Again, prayers go out to Nipsey’s friends and family.
Although it is sold out, the funeral will be held at the Staples Center April 11 from 10a.m. to 12p.m.
