Charity Shops Are Begging People To Stop Donating Copies Of Fifty Shades Of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey

Ungrateful or what?

Over in Swansea, an Oxfam charity shop has basically begged locals to stop donating Fifty Shades Of Grey to them because they’ve got way too many copies and can’t sell them. Lol.

They’re instead asking people to donate 60s and 70s vinyl for some unknown reason. I suppose anything is better than having a surplus of copies of 50 Shades Of Grey though right?

Store owner manager Phil Broadhurst told BBC Radio 5 Live:

It’s been ever since the books first came out.

When they first came out, we wanted them, because it was our bestselling book for a couple of weeks.

And then ever since then, we’ve had lots of people desperate to get rid of them and [they] bring them in nonstop.

Well I can’t say I’m surprised – 50 Shades Of Grey is complete garbage. Apparently the store has over 100 copies of it in there now, and many more have had to be sent to warehouses to be sold online or turned in pulp. If you’re thinking of donating a copy, do everyone a favour and chuck it in the recycling – cheers. Or burn them.

Did you know that 50 Shades Of Grey was responsible for the rise in STDs in the past few years? No shit.
