Jeff Bezos Shares Email From Racist Man Angry About Black Lives Matter: 'You're the Kind of Customer I'm Happy to Lose'

Amazon boss Jeff Bezos has responded to a "sickening" anti-Black Lives Matter email he received, taking to Instagram to share a message with a man called Dave: "You're the kind of customer I'm happy to lose."

The founder and CEO of the online retail giant posted a screenshot of an expletive-filled email from the man yesterday. The note included multiple racial slurs and fumed over Amazon's posts standing in solidarity with the anti-racism movement.

Bezos said Dave's rant landed in his inbox after he posted about an email from another raging customer, which he also published to his Instagram feed Friday.

"There have been a number of sickening but not surprising responses in my inbox since my last post," Bezos wrote Sunday. "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."

Dave—whose surname was redacted—was upset because Amazon pledged support for Black Lives Matter following the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25, a death that became the catalyst for global anti-racism protests.

"Pledging support for a bunch of worthless [n-word] will ruin your company," Dave wrote, according to the post. "White America is sick and tired of this [n-word] bullshit.

"I canceled my order and I know for a fact I won't be the only one. Maintain your stance and we will watch your profits decline and laugh about it. My business relationship with you is over. F*** you in the ass you piece of s***. Dave."

Bezos, who is the richest man in the world with a current net worth of more than $149 billion, did not ultimately appear too upset about Dave's lack of business support. Nor where the commenters. "Bye Dave!" model and actress Amber Rose responded.

Amazon is donating $10 million to a variety of social justice and activist groups, including Black Lives Matter, the ACLU Foundation and the Equal Justice Initiative.

"The inequitable and brutal treatment of Black and African Americans is unacceptable. 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," the company said in an statement on June 3.

In his Friday Instagram post, Bezos hit back against an email sent by a person named "Macy" who asserted that Amazon's BLM support had been "disturbing."

In response, Bezos said: "Black Lives Matter doesn't mean other lives don't matter. Black lives matter speaks to racism and the disproportionate risk that black people face in our law enforcement and justice system. I have a 20 year old son, and I simply don't worry that he might be choked to death while being detained one day.

"It's not something I worry about. Black parents can't say the same. I support this movement that we see happening all around us, and my stance won't change."
