23-Year-Old Makes $100K Off Osama's Death

5/6/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Osama bin Laden's body was barely in American custody -- and one savvy New York kid was already making t-shirts to commemorate the bastard's death ... pulling in over $100,000 in less than 2 days.

23-year old Maurice Harary tells TMZ, he made a beeline to his NY apartment as soon as he heard the news of Osama's death -- and started building a website to sell his "OBL is dead" t-shirts.

Maurice claims the site went live at 3:30 am on Monday -- and by Tuesday evening, he had already sold around 10,000 units at 12 bucks a pop ... meaning dude raked in approximately 120k in less than two days.

Yes, we know ... you had the idea first. Stop whining.

@smashley--No the rest of the world hates us because we don't mind our own damn business. It's much bigger than t-shirts. We are bullies.

I am leaning towards Mark and some other commentor regarding 9/11 being an inside job and us needing to mind our own business. But not everyone in America is like that so you need to keep your generalizations to yourself. By you assuming that we are all hateful American's and have different opinions than you you are being a prejuidice, hateful individual. I'm not always proud to call myself an American for sometimes what our country represents but I sure as hell wouldn't go to another country and say that I am from Canada lol. Really???

Good thing an actual graphic designer decided to pick up his pieces... those T-Shirts were horrendously ugly.
