Not everyone is remembering Steve Jobs in a classy manner.

SFist reports that a poster was found outside an Android store in Sichuan, China that reads "Steve Jobs has kicked the bucket. Why would you still be buying Apple?"

The image -- which can be seen here -- the ad also features Android's mascot kicking a black Apple logo down the road.

Despite the poor taste of the ad it is highly unlikely it was full sanctioned by Google considering the homage the company and its leaders paid to Jobs Thursday.

Apple shareholders also didn't seem to share the sentiment about why one would want an Apple product now. Apple shares held steady in trading Thursday.
