After eBay announced Thursday its plans to scrub the site of Dr. Seuss books deemed “offensive,” a number of social media users expressed outrage and alleged a double standard over the continuing sales of copies of hateful books such as Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” on the retail site.

“So @eBay bans @DrSeuss, but Hitler’s #MeinKampf is allowed,” tweeted Rabbi Yisroel Kahan.

Copies of “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” “If I Ran the Zoo,” “McElligot’s Pool,” “On Beyond Zebra!,” “Scrambled Eggs Super!” and “The Cat’s Quizzer” will cease publication and be pulled from stores like eBay. At the time this article was published, copies of all six books remain for sale on eBay.

This reporter reached out to eBay on Thursday, giving them over 15 hours to respond. However, no response was given.

At the time of publication, copies of “Mein Kampf” remain on eBay.

After Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced Tuesday its plans to stop publication and licensing of the six books due to racist and insensitive imagery, a number of companies have ceased sales of the books.

Some have stood against the move, like The New York Public Library and Denver Public Library, who say they will keep the children’s books on shelves.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
