Shirts with Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain’s suicide note printed on the front have been taken down from Etsy and eBay after sparking outrage on the Internet.

The baseball-style T-shirts and tank tops caught the attention of a Reddit user on Monday. The post was met with complaints and disgust.

The tank version sold on Etsy was yanked, but Styleite reported that the other style was available on eBay for $ 25.19 on Tuesday. That listing appears to have been taken down as well.

Cobain committed suicide at his home in Seattle on April 5, 1994. Widow Courtney Love later read the letter with his last words at a memorial for the singer.
