Lin-Manuel Miranda criticized for selling $79 framed selfies


Lin-Manuel Miranda is facing backlash after Twitter users uncovered photos for sale on his website at a surprisingly high price.

Tee Rico, Miranda’s official artist merchandise site, is selling all sorts of photos taken by the “Hamilton” creator — including some selfies.

The prints are available for $19 each — but a framed picture will set you back $79.

Jack Wagner, host of the “Yeah, But Still” podcast, tweeted screenshots of the prints and other items for sale at Miranda’s store.

Other users were quick to criticize the merchandise — and the prices.

“There’s no way this is an official store?? I’m stress sweating thinking about anyone approving this,” one wrote.

“That’s a good use of eighty dollars, yes,” another said.

Other items available on the site include notebooks, pins and water bottles, ranging in price from $5 to $22. None of those items faced criticism over pricing.

According to the website, Tee Rico features products made “by artists and designers that have been close to Lin-Manuel’s life,” and a portion of sales are donated to artists, charity events and other programs.
