A Twitter user nicknamed cringepolitik has raised his voice to say that GameStop's NFTs platform is selling unethical non-fungible tokens.

In particular, he has referenced an NFT with an image of a figure falling into a spacesuit.

According to cringepolitik, the Falling Man NFT is reminiscent of the photograph of the same name by Associated Press reporter Richard Drew, taken during the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York.
