Amazon continues to hypocritically talk about embracing respect for all heritages and diversity while peddling prejudice for profit. Currently on Amazon there are 142 Items for sale with the phrase “Irish Livers Matter”. One of the items is even labeled “Amazon’s Choice.”
This is in addition to numerous items emblazoned with “Irish Lives Matter”, but certainly “Irish Livers Matter” plumbs new depths of defamation, there is no uninformed or misguided positive spin or nuanced interpretation one can put on “Irish Livers Matter”; it insults two heritages for one low price.
The hypocrisy of Mr. Bezos’ publicly virtue signaling on Amazon’s policy of respect and diversity while continually peddling prejudice for profit is cynically hypocritical. The Hibernians have repeatedly reached out to Amazon concerning their defaming merchandise, most recently concerning their sale of a “(F*** St. Patrick’s Day “shirt, including a petition with over 5.000 signatures, only to be ignored. The sale of the “Irish Livers Matter” shirt is just another example of Amazon’s diversity duplicity.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos once stated, “diversity and inclusion are not just good for business, but simply right.” Those words ring contemptuously hollow when Amazon chooses to sell “Irish Livers Matter” merchandise.
