Kids board game removed from ebay due to swastika sign on box

London, Jan 16 (ANI): A kids board game up for grabs at auction site ebay has been removed following a stir over a swastika on the box.

Web bosses sent an email to seller Paul Ramsier, insisting that the Nazi sign was hateful and discriminatory and could not be shown.

They said that the sign fell foul of their racial intolerance rules, but if it was covered up on the box the game could be auctioned.

Its ridiculous and political correctness gone mad, the Sun quoted Legal representative Ramsier, 46, of Coulsdon, Surrey as saying. (ANI)

The bidding for the game had reached 20 pounds at the time. (ANI)
