Amazon Tries to Sell "The Sopranos" DVDs on Facebook After James Gandolfini's Death

The acting community and fans alike are saddened by the passing of Tony Soprano himself, James Gandolfini, yesterday while on a trip to Italy. He was 51. 

Naturally, watching The Sopranos to reminiscence at the spectacular acting of Gandolfini in his most celebrated role seems like a given thing to do. Of course, Amazon knew this, and tried to take advantage of the situation by making a quick buck off of the show's first season in a Facebook post expressing their sadness. After some backlash, the company removed the Facebook post. Of course, they are a business and the purpose of a business is to make money; but sometimes, let sympathy be sympathy, and nothing more.
