Jesse James‘ Nazi photo scandal continues to grow, with the Jewish Anti-Defamation League assailing him for making a poor choice by selling a German Red Baron airplane using his Nazi salute photo as a selling point.
Despite James’ assertion that he doesn’t have a racist bone in his body, the West Coast Choppers boss created controversy once again on Tuesday with an ebay auction.
He used a photo of himself giving a Nazi salute to sell the plane. Just last week on ABC’s Nightline he cried, admitted his serial cheating on Sandra Bullock and denied harboring prejudice to any joke. He dismissed the photo as a bad joke.
And yet, just days later Jesse used the photo as a prop to sell the plane, angering many.
The Anti-Defamation League issued this statement to RadarOnline.com: “The photo of Jesse James doing a Nazi salute was a poor choice for promoting the sale of his German Red Baron airplane. We hope that West Coast Choppers will do the right thing and choose a less offensive image.”
It looks like someone got the message. The auction page was up for less than two hours before it was taken down without explanation.
In the original listing, Jesse described the plane as a piece of “pop culture history” because of the cameo “as seen in US, People, In Touch, etc., etc., etc.”
The nototrious photo was taken in 2004, while Jesse and Sandra Bullock were dating.
