An online petition to have Amazon remove Donald Trump’s products from its website has garnered over 10,000 signatures.
According to the petition started by the women’s rights group UltraViolet:
Despite Donald Trump’s sexist, racist comments, Amazon is promoting and profiting from him and his brand.
The online behemoth sells Trump’s line of menswear–even though companies like Macy’s bailed on Trump’s brand of hate last year.
Trump is inciting violence at his rallies and spewing vitriol that white supremacists like David Duke love. So why is Amazon continuing to support the Trump empire? Many of us use Amazon, and the company has responded to our pressure before over the selling of sexist products. It needs to follow suit when it comes to Trump products. Will you add your name now?
Amazon isn’t likely to take much action here. Many, if not most, of the products on Amazon are sold by third party companies and individual sellers, not Amazon themselves. Even if Amazon committed to not selling the products, they would likely still be readily available on the website.
