Amazon Sells Sports Bag Containing ‘Photo of Child With Tape Over its Mouth’


A sports bag sold on Amazon appeared to contain an image of a child with tape stuck over his or her mouth, according to online shoppers.

According to screenshots taken by customers, the image of the child appears in a product image showing the inside of a zipper pocket of an NFL Dallas Cowboys sling bag sold by a seller listed as The Northwest Company.

Shoppers were shocked to see the image, which they assumed represented an endorsement of child trafficking.

“I clicked on the link and that’s when I found the photos,” said Amazon user Laura Harper, according to the Daily Mail.

“I screenshotted and posted them to the Amazon Facebook page, wanting an explanation and within ten minutes, the photo in question had been removed and the product was listed as ‘unavailable’.”
