The gun auction of the weapon that killed Trayvon Martin was resumed last night....

...and was hijacked by the internet. Good going. Gawker reports:

Yesterday, after George Zimmerman’s initial attempt to auction off the weapon he used to kill Trayvon Martin was foiled, a second auction site took up the cause. That auction has since been disrupted by the user “Racist McShootFace,” who placed a series of bids pushing the price up past $65 million.

It's unclear whether Racist McShootface based his name on the violent videogame Borderlands 2 and its suicidal Easter egg character Face McShooty, or if this is just a Boaty McBoatface derivative. Regardless, I gotta agree with Matt LaCasse:
