May I present to you our newest “Douchebag of the Year” nominee.

Martin McCann of London thought it would be a wise move to scoop up the domain AmyWinehouseFoundation.com a week after the pop singer’s tragic death at age 27. When her family asked permission to use the domain to properly channel charitable donations, he flatly refused. The UK Sun tracked the guy down this week, and when confronted as to why he was doing this, McCann gave this classy answer:

“Detach yourself from emotions and think business,” McCann said. “I’m not exploiting anything yet. I’ve just bought some domain names. Anybody could have. It only takes the click of a mouse.”

Sure, anybody can purchase a domain name, but only total a**holes do it to make money off a dead celebrity’s philanthropy potential.

Amy’s father, Mitch, called the guy a d**khead (which I think was pretty generous) after the guy requested cash for the domains. In response, McCann said, “I’m not the d**khead,” he said. “The d**khead is sitting over there without the name in his possession,” adding that he registered the name after a different Amy Winehouse. Riiigghhhtt.
