Jungle Freaks by Trolsey Racism

OpenSea is being put under pressure to remove popular collection ‘Jungle Freaks by Trolsey‘ due to past racist cartoons created by artist George Trosley surfacing.

The project’s floor has gone from 1.3 ETH to 0.4 ETH in a matter of 24 hours and unsuspecting NFT collectors are grabbing them convinced they are picking up a bargain.

The movement was sparked by a tweet from Elijah Wood, best known for his portrayal of Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

He tweeted last night that he had sold his Jungle Freaks due to Trosley’s prior disturbing cartoons, writing that he “wholly denounced any form of racism.”


We researched some of the cartoons from the 1970’s and will not republish the disgusting and undeniable racism they promote directly on our website. However, if you insist on seeing them for yourself you can find a link to a selection here.

Trolsey’s son took to Twitter to defend his father with the following statement



There is also questionable artwork on the characters of his current Jungle Freak collection, with some of them donning a Nazi hat. You can view that here.

Jungle Freaks is a collection by George Trosley on the Ethereum blockchain.

He describes the project as – The year is 2077, humanity is gone and the zombies have overrun the cities and seized a lot of the military stockpiles. However, they didn’t count on the genetically enhanced ferocity and cunning traits of the gorilla regime. The Gorilla oasis stronghold is under attack but they will never surrender.

OpenSea has yet to comment on the matter but when they do you will hear it here first.
