JEFF Bezos has shared a racist email he received after supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and said he is “happy to lose” the customer.

The strongly-worded letter from “Dave,” said: “You are a perfect a** hole. You obviously are not an idiot or you wouldn’t have the financial success that you have had.
“I was placing an order with your company when I discovered your statement of support for Black Lives Matter.
“Pledging support for a bunch of worthless n****s will ruin your company. While America is sick and tired of this n**** bulls**t.
“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**k you in the a** you piece of s**.”
Bezos apparent response to the profanity filled letter was posted as a caption, accompanied by a print screen of the letter.
“There have been a number of sickening but not surprising responses in my inbox since my last post,” the CEO wrote.
“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 of the problem.
“And, Dave, you’re the kind of customer I’m happy to lose.”
Just two days before, Bezos shared additional backlash that he has received since uploading the statement to the site.

Some workers – like Maren Costa and Emily Cunningham – alleged that they were fired for speaking out against Amazon, a claim the company has repeatedly denied.
“We support every employee’s right to criticize their employer’s working conditions, but that does not come with blanket immunity against any and all internal policies,” an Amazon spokesperson previously told The Sun.
“We terminated these employees not for talking publicly about working conditions or safety, but rather, for repeatedly violating internal policies.”
