Jeff Bezos is putting one customer on notice after they emailed the Amazon CEO expressing their concern over the company supporting “Black Lives Matter.” Amazon users were quick to notice that their homepage has changed to read the three powerful words and some loyal consumers aren’t happy. Jeff Bezos shared an email from one angry customer whose concern over the company’s stance caused the multibillionaire to personally respond to her “All Lives Matter” email. Shutting her down, the businessman responded in the most epic way possible.
Exposing the email titled “All Lives Matter,” the customer who goes by Macy wrote, “it is quite disturbing to get on the Amazon website and see ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER.'” Saying that the company provides services to “more than millions of people,” Macy continued, “I am for everyone voicing their opinions and standing up for what they believe in, but for your company to blast this on your website is very offensive to me.” The emailer than added, “ALL LIVES MATTER!” in big bold letters.
Macy then asked, “And if it wasn’t for all the lives providing their service to your [sic] and your company, where would Amazon be today?” Jeff Bezos felt so strongly about this user’s stance that he decided to personally email her back and made it clear that his opinion won’t change.
“No, Macy, I have to disagree with you,” he responded. “‘Black Lives Matter’ doesn’t mean other lives don’t matter. Black Lives Matter speaks to racism and the disproportionate risk that Black people face in our law enforcement and judicial system.”
Jeff Bezos then turned the focus to his own experience. “I have a 20-year-old son, and I simply don’t worry that he might be choked to death while being detained one day. It’s not something I worry about. Black parents can’t say the same,” he went on to explain.
“None of this is intended to dismiss or minimize the very real worries you or anyone else might have in their own life,” he continued. That’s when he dropped the hammer.
“I want you to know that I support this movement that we see happening all around us, and my stance won’t change.” Signing off his email, Jeff Bezos signed his name and added, “My sincere very best to you.” Fans immediately began applauding the Amazon CEO. “Well said Jeffrey. She’s really more of a Walmart customer anyway,” one person joked. “Could you imagine making a Karen complaint and having the CEO of Amazon absolutely destroy you ? well said!” said another.
