Lord of The Rings Actor Buys NFT of Racist Artist

A strange story emerged about Elijah Wood; an actor most famous for his role in The Lord of The Rings franchise. The actor purchased a Trosley NFT, and posted it on twitter. It immediately came to light through other twitterites that George Trosley had a series of extremely racist cartoons from his past work. 

The actor responded saying : “After previously purchasing some NFTs, as well as being gifted one, I was made aware of some of the artist’s prior disturbing cartoons. Upon learning of this, I immediately sold the NFTs as I wholly denounce any form of racism. I have donated the funds from the sale of the NFTs to LDF and Black Lives Matter.”
