A man has left fellow social media users outraged and slightly queasy after attempting to sell his dead sister’s ‘worn’ underwear online.
The man from Ayrshire in Scotland took to his local ‘buy and sell’ Facebook page to flog his deceased sibling’s ‘unwashed’ size 14 lingerie for $18 a pair.
He described the unlaundered garments as ‘ideal for fetish’ and offered a discount for shoppers making multiple purchases.
“House clearance as my sister has died size 14 pants £2 a pair for new £10 a pair for worn unwashed ideal for fetish,” he wrote in the post.
“Discount for more than one pair can post discreetelie [sic].”
Also on up for grabs were his sister’s ‘new’ knickers which he had priced at just $3.50.
The man uploaded over a dozen photos of the pre-owned items, showing various frilly, lacy and sheer g-strings mostly in black and white.
His post appears to have since caught the eye of many social media users who have been taken aback by his unusual ad.
“What’s wrong with folk. Seriously,” one person wrote on Instagram, while another called the ad, “truly sick”.
Some weren’t sure if the ad was a hoax, writing, “Surely this can’t be real.”
One user was able to see the funny side, joking, “How much for 12 pairs worn? Asking for a friend.”
It’s not clear whether the man successfully found buyers for his wares but he’s certainly attracted a lot of free advertising.
