Hey Amazon! Time For You To Step Up & Do The Right Thing!

Mar 07 2013

Amazon:keep-calm t-shirts

Dear Amazon: I am one of your customers and have been from your very early days. I buy often and I buy a lot. I have family and friends all over the globe and so I routinely buy from your U.S., your U.K. and your French sites. In fact, when I need something other than clothing and shoes, you are usually my first online stop. This may not be the case for much longer however.

As I'm sure you know from my profile history, I am also a woman and the mother of a young daughter. There are no words (at least no polite ones) to describe my reaction to the series of deeply offensive and violent slogan T-Shirts that appeared on your site recently. While I'm relieved that you took them down relatively quickly, I fail to understand how they were ever allowed to be uploaded in the first place. I also fail to understand why you have yet to issue a prompt explanation and apology.

It's time for you to step up and do the right thing.
