Angry Protesters Want Jeff Bezos’ Head On A Platter

Jeff Bezos is reportedly worth over $160 billion and that status as the world’s richest man is exactly why he’s got a new lawn ornament in front of his D.C. home.Angry protesters placed a guillotine outside his door on Sunday with a sign that read “Support our poor communities, not our wealthy men.” The blade itself isn’t real but the message targeting Jeff’s obnoxiously rich status sure is.

The guillotine is a clear reference to the 1793 beheading of Marie Antoinette at the beginning of the French Revolution. Despite the instrument’s destructive purpose, the protesters on the street outside of Bezos’ home were peaceful just sitting or standing around the device.

It is unclear if Bezos was at home at the time the protesters delivered the prop but the protesters were determined to make their message loud and clear by circulating a digital flyer that read, “Amazon works directly with police to surveil us, stoking racist fears in the name of profit. Doubling down on their union-busting and mistreatment of workers… Join us to tell Jeff Bezos enough is enough!”

In his defense, Bezos did respond to an angry Amazon customer earlier this month on why Amazon is supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. After the disgruntled customer sent Bezos an email to say “All Lives Matter”, Bezos replied with, “‘Black Lives Matter’ doesn’t mean other lives don’t matter. Black live matter speaks to racism and the disproportionate risk that Black people face in our law enforcement and justice system.”

That stance, however, isn’t enough to satisfy Jeff’s critics who believe that a man of such means could be doing so much more to make our society better.
