Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos took to social media to share the backlash he has received after coming out as openly supporting the Black Lives Matter movement (BLM). A statement on Amazon reads: “Black lives matter. Amazon stands in solidarity with the Black community.” An Amazon customer uploaded a post Instagram with the subject line “All Lives Matter,” and told Bezos via that platform that the online retailer’s support for BLM was “quite disturbing.” The message continued, “I am for everyone voicing their opinions and standing up for what you believe in, but for your company to blast this on your website is very offensive to me and I’m sure you’ll be hearing from others. ALL LIVES MATTER!”
