Jeff Bezos-Amazon is “happy to lose” customers who didn't support Black Lives Matter
Protesters have set up a guillotine outside a Washington, D.C. complex where Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos purportedly resides, according to reports.
Several videos circulated on social media showing what resembled the apparatus known for beheading executions during the French Revolution in a residential area of the nation’s capital. A sign read: “Support our poor communities. Not our wealthy men.”
