Paul Walker

Sicko Tried Selling Burned Tree Bark From Crash Scene

EXCLUSIVE

1206-paul-walker-crash-splash-gettySome deranged creep tried to make a quick buck off Paul Walker's death by selling pieces of burned bark he claims he took from the tree Paul crashed into ... TMZ has learned.

The seller says he took 6 pieces of charred tree (pictured below) from the crash site and put them on eBay -- asking for at least $100 per item.

But we've learned ... the seller had a change of heart (which might have had something to do with the hate mail he got) and he decided to to pull the auction for good.

The seller tells TMZ, "I would like to apologize to the family, friends, and fans of Paul Walker.  At the time I listed the bark for sale, I did not realize the emotional impact it would have."

It doesn't matter if that was from a popular person or just another human being! What a jack ass to try to sell pieces of the bark from the tree that ended up in a death! That person should be banned from selling anything on Ebay forever. HOW LOW CLASS AND MORONIC THAT IDIOT IS!

How is this any different than Universal Studios profiting from the sale of Fast and Furious 6 by donating 'a portion' of all sales to one of Walker's charities? 'A portion' is misleading, as it can be as little as a single penny from each sale. All the while Universal rakes in millions due to Walker's death.

If this guy is a sicko for profiting from one persons tragedy, then organizations like Susan G. Komen walk, Red Cross, hell even Google and PayPal who instantly has giant DONATE TO HELP ads flashing all over the screen, are bottom feeding filth, yeah, sure, so mind explaining how the Red Cross helped/still helps victims of Hurricane Katrina? THEY DON'T

Being a business owner myself, seeing how low s***bags will go to get me shut down, making rumors up, saying I steal bread from churches, stealing my ads, and even using my name, never underestimate the extent of peoples greediness.

Honestly, this was somewhat disrespectful to Paul, you could look at it as another way he is remembered.

Anyone know where I can buy the tires off the truck that carried the wreckage away. Several hundred years from now they will be worth a lot of money.
