Craigslist is not here for those who are trying to use their platform to sell tickets to Nipsey Hussle’s memorial service!
Tickets for Nipsey Hussle’s memorial service went live on Wednesday morning for California residents. The cost, none at all as Nip was such an important figure in the Los Angles Community.
Although the tickets were free, it took less than 5 minutes for the free tickets to sell out! But leave it to people to want to come up on some money as some have taken to Craigslist to sell the tickets.
According to TMZ, the online selling site began to pull ads that were promoting tickets after many noticed that prices were $500 a piece. However, because the tickets could not actually be sold, Craigslist started to flag and remove posts attempting to move the free tickets at high prices.
With tickets being a hot item for this memorial, AXS and the organizer tried to ensure that only true Nip fans got their hands on some with the limit being 4 per household.
Although there are some people who are trying to make money off of Nip’s death, AXS pointed out that the tickets would not actually be transferable from a scalper to a buyer. They said that the tickets were distributed exclusively via an app.
The memorial service will take place on Thursday, April 11th at the Staple Center with a funeral procession to follow which will hit all areas of Los Angeles that Nip personally touched which is said to be over 20 miles.
Nipsey’s mother took to her social media on Teusday to share some inspirational words for those who are still mourning his death.
