Teenager Tries To Sell Her Two-Year-Old Cousin On Ebay!

Autumn Braden claims she was just joking when she listed the toddler she was babysitting on the online auction site.

But she had to explain herself to concerned cops when worried web-users raised the alarm!

“Basically, all I was trying to do was see how eBay worked,” Autumn Braden, 19, says. “I had a picture of (my cousin), so I just put it up there. It wasn’t meant to be taken seriously!”

Offering a “buy it now” price of $1,000, Autumn advertised her cousin as, and we quote verbatim, “An adorable child for sale can clean and hold a decent conversation very lovable but I just out grew her.”

Horrified eBay users quickly called the cops. and the listing was promptly pulled by eBay.

Autumn was paid a visit by officers in Allendale, Mich., who questioned her and have yet to decide if they’ll press charges.

The teenager remains baffled by the fuss her prank caused, telling the Grand Rapids Press, “Anybody who has ever seen me with (my cousin), knows I would never do anything to harm her.”

But we don’t imagine she’ll land another babysitting job for a while!

What do you think HollyMoms? Could you see the funny side of a prank like this?

That little bitch needs to be behind bars. That is practically like slavery, trying to sell another human. She knows it was not a joke that dumb ass. It is stupid that she is not allowed on the internet but she is still allowed to be alone with babies by herself. Next you know that baby is going to be on Ebay or Craigslist. She needs her ass kicked and face smacked while she was smiling in her jail picture. If I ever ran into her I would give her a ass whooping. Who ever else thinks this is funny, how would you feel if someone tried to sell your child on the internet, it wouldn’t be funny then huh you stupid cunt.

Joke or not, actions have consequences and I hope this young woman gets more that a slap on the wrist. If I were thast child’s mother, I would certainly want some kind of punishment for the young woman who clearly has no sense of right vs. wrong. Truly disturbing….
