George Michael, who died at home on Christmas day, wore a “Choose Life” white t-shirt in a 1984 Wham’s video for Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.
A version of the t-shirt with the words “Choose Death” is being sold online at a price of only £7.50 on several sites, including eBay, where tasteless listing such as “George Michael Choose Death. Funny Wham music tribute t-shirt!” can be seen.
The bleak version of the famous shirt has provoked anger in fans who claim heartless eBay traders are cashing in on the celebrity’s death, whose funeral is due to be held later this month. Fans expect traders to have a conscience and remove them from sale.
After the inconclusive post-mortem results, the police started an investigation on George Michael’s death which has been considered non-suspicious. Police confirmed it would turn into a criminal investigation if further tests reveal the cause of death was drugs overdose, since they would look to find out who the supplier was.
