FOUL! Thousands Of Ali Funeral Tickets Given & People Doing THIS w/Them?
One journalist (Leonard Greene) recently said it best- ‘If you want to know the difference between a champ and a chump’ look at what some people are doing after getting free tickets to the late, great Muhammad Ali’s funeral. When thousands of fans filed in line yesterday (Wed.) outside of the KFC Yum!Center in Louisville, KY, the scalpers reared their money grubbin’ heads when they, too, showed up and showed OUT. After 15,000 FREE tickets to Ali’s upcoming public funeral were handed out to fans in just one hour, the champ’s honor soon turned into an online circus. Unfortunately, here’s what has been happening since the funeral tickets hit the ‘net…
ALI'S FUNERAL TICKETS BEING SCALPED ONLINE FOR $100 A POP!
So as of yesterday (6-8-16), Craigslist was flooded with a bunch of funeral ticket peddlers who are selling their FREE tickets to Ali's funeral for $100.00 and up. That's messed up!
Ali was all about helping people and everything he stood for is getting demolished a little more with each funeral ticket sale. These folks might as well walk up to Ali's casket during the funeral and give his body a right jab to the gut- same difference.
We understand that time's are hard out here and folks gotta come up how ever they can, BUT sometimes preserving your soul is more profitable than pocketing a profit.
SEE WHAT THE FAMILY SPOKESMAN SAID THOUGH>>>
