Conservative media personality Glenn Beck tried to sell a piece of artwork he called "Obama in Pee Pee" on eBay this week but the sale was rejected by the auction site, according to reports by NBCNews.com and U.S. News & World Report.

 

Beck said he created the piece, which featured a President Barack Obama toy submerged in a urine-colored liquid in jar, to exercise his First Amendment rights. He had been discussing a painting entitled "The Truth" which depicted President Barack Obama in a Christ-like pose with a crown of thorns.

 

Beck was given a letter from eBay on Wednesday saying the auction had been removed because it contained "bodily waste," NBCNews.com reported. Beck's website claimed the liquid was actually beer.

 

Bids on eBay had topped $11,000, NBCNews.com said. Beck said he would take bids by email instead.
