Amazon Customers Sign Letter To Jeff Bezos To Dump Donald Trump

An anonymous reader writes: More than 13,000 Amazon customers (including upwards of 5,000 Amazon Prime subscribers), have signed a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos calling for the company to stop selling Trump’s line of menswear. UltraViolet Action is the organization hosting the petition, which calls for Amazon to “stop profiting off of [Trump’s] brand of hate.” The letter reads: “Donald Trump has consistently lobbed racist, sexist, and xenophobic attacks against entire groups of people, encouraged violence and vitriol against his political enemies and perpetuated a culture of violence against women. Amazon.com should want to distance themselves from this hateful rhetoric, but instead, they’re profiting off his brand,” explained Karin Roland, Chief Campaigns Officer at UltraViolet, in a statement. “Jeff Bezos needs to listen to his customers and ensure that Amazon doesn’t profit off of Trump hate, and take immediate steps to dump Trump.” If Amazon does take action, they wouldn’t be the first. Macy’s stopped carrying Trump’s products last summer, and Univision and NBC cut ties with Trump over his statements as well.
