Online auction site eBay has caved to the liberal cancel culture mob and banned users from selling copies of the “problematic" Dr. Seuss books.

The company is telling users that their listings have been removed because they didn’t follow the “Offensive Material Policy.”

This week, Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced it is discontinuing six of the author’s books that the far-left woke mob has been complaining about, including If I Ran the Zoo and And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street.

The eBay message said:

“Listings that promote or glorify hatred, violence, or discrimination aren’t allowed."

Under a heading about “what activity didn’t follow the policy,” eBay explains that “Dr. Seuss Enterprises has stopped publication of this book due to negative portrayal of some ethnicities.”

“As a courtesy, we have ended your item and refunded your selling fees, and as long as you do not relist the item, there will be no negative impact to your account,” the message continued.

But there are still millions of books with outdated political ideas listed on eBay.

Last week, The national educator's organization warned schools that the children's books Dr. Seuss have “racial undertones."

For over two decades, March 2 has been recognized as Read Across America Day in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday.

The National Education Association founded the reading recognition day in 1998.

The school district said that Dr. Suess’s children’s books contain “racial undertones” and are not suitable for “culturally responsive” learning.

The school's announcement said:

“Realizing that many schools continue to celebrate ‘Read Across America Day’ in partial recognition of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, it is important for us to be cognizant of research that may challenge our practice in this regard."

"As we become more culturally responsive and racially conscious, all building leaders should know that in recent years there has been research revealing radical undertones in the books written and the illustrations drawn by Dr. Seuss.”
