Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos expressed support for the Black Lives Matter movement in the most recent post on his Instagram page.
In the two-image upload, Bezos shared a letter that he claimed was sent by a customer who was upset about a banner on the site that said “Black Lives Matter.” The purported letter writer claimed that they were a regular Amazon customer who felt that the company should represent all of their customers. At one point in the letter, they wrote “All Lives Matter” in all caps.
Bezos opened his response by explicitly stating that he disagreed with the customer.
“‘Black Lives Matter’ doesn’t mean other lives don’t matter,” he wrote. “Black Lives Matter speaks to racism and the disproportionate risk that Black people face in our law enforcement and justice system.”
