Give at least one eBay user points for creativity.

With Jim Carrey under backlash for posing a Funny or Die video (below) that calls out gun owners and mocks former NRA President Charlton Heston, someone on that website posted an signed picture of the actor Wednesday.

Read the listing: “Jim Carrey Autographed 8X10 Photo So I Can Afford a Gun!”

A black-and-white shot of Carrey with the inscription "“Spank you very much!," the item had attracted 103 bidders at one point and the price had been driving to $860.


But then the description changed and the bids disappeared, as eBay seemingly got involved in the selling.

"I’m selling this Jim Carrey autographed B&W photo (mint condition) for purposes I cannot explain because it might be against eBay’s Terms & Conditions," wrote the user afterward.

While the company has not spoken about the incident, users had plenty to say in the Comments section of the item, taking Carrey to task for his outspoken viewers.

“In the hopes Carrey will see this: I will NOT be seeing KICK-ASS 2 when it is released,” one person wrote, while another added:

“I would just like to encourage the winning bidder in this noble cause to bring the prize to the range for proper disposal."
