Jeff Bezos calls out an anti-Black Lives Matter racist in his emails, posting the message to Instagram.
Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, may not be the most beloved human on the planet. Lest we forget his treatment of his warehouse employees in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, choosing to take away hazard pay increases for his workers despite raising his net worth by $30 million during the outbreak. Still, it looks like he's on the right side of the current battle against racism and police violence.
The Amazon founder shared a screenshot of an e-mail he received from an All Lives Matter supporter, calling them out and inviting them to shop elsewhere. He continued his recent trend of exposing racists in his e-mails by doing so again.

"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."
His new post shows a message from a man named Dave, who claims his business relationship with Bezos is done after Amazon's statement supporting Black Lives Matter.
"And, Dave, you’re the kind of customer I’m happy to lose," wrote Bezos to close his message.
