Amazon CEO Jeffrey P. Bezos Pulls Offensive Shirts Off Amazon!! (Video)
Amazon CEO Jeffrey P. Bezos Pulls Offensive Shirts Off Amazon!! (Video) Amazon has removed a T-shirt range bearing sickening messages about sex crime and violence towards women. The T-shirts pulled from sale by the online retailer included phrases like Keep Calm And Rape A Lot, Keep Calm And Punch Her, Keep Calm And Grope On, Keep Calm and Choke Her, Keep Calm and Knife Her and Keep Calm And Kill Her. The U.S. firm that makes the shirts, Solid Gold Bomb, blamed a ‘computer’ error for the offensive slogans.But Tory MP Caroline Dinenage said: ‘These are ridiculous, mindless products for anybody to attempt to sell.
It is absurd to say they were manufactured in error.’ A flood of complaints on social-networking websites prompted the decision by Amazon. Solid Gold Bomb sold the short-sleeved t-shirts for between £15 and £17 on the warehouse website. But potential customers were clearly not willing to buy the deeply offensive t-shirts, slamming both Amazon and the clothes shop, which has its headquarters in the UK. Users branded the shop and its message 'disgusting' and 'disturbing'.
