9/11 inspired GameStop NFT retired

Last February GameStop announced that it plans to open a new marketplace for NFTs, where interested parties will be able to buy and sell NFTs from an approved collection of various creators. One of these creators, who goes by the name of Jules, started selling an NFT called Falling Man, which refers to a well-known photo of a man falling from the World Trade Center on 11the September. In the image, the man is dressed as an astronaut and is accompanied by the inscription: “This one probably falls from the MIR station.”

The GameStop’s NFT marketplace currently using astronauts as mascots, however, this does not explain Jules’ decision to take an image that has been linked to the 9/11 tragedyher September and make a profit from it. The NFT naturally became the subject of a lot of negative feedback, resulting in GameStop deciding to pull the image.
