CEO of Amazon Jeff Bezos posted correspondence with a racist customer who declined his order after finding out Jeff supported Black Lives Matter.

Blocking out the sender’s last name and the racial slur they used, Bezos said he’s “happy to lose” customers over his support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I was placing an order with your company when I discovered your statement in support of Black Lives Matter,” the customer wrote in an angry rant message. “Maintain your stance and we will watch your profits decline and laugh about it. My business relationship with you is over.” Bezos responded, “this sort of hate shouldn’t be allowed to hide in the shadows. It’s important to make it visible. This is just one example of the problem. And, Dave, you’re the kind of customer I’m happy to lose.”

Following, Amazon wrote in a blog post: “The inequitable and brutal treatment of Black and African Americans is unacceptable. We believe Black lives matter. We stand in solidarity with our Black employees, customers, and partners, and are committed to helping build a country and a world where everyone can live with dignity and free from fear.”
