Jeff Bezos Dragged After Thanking Amazon Employees for Paying for Space Flight
July 21, 2021
Jeff Bezos is being called “tone deaf” for his remarks following his 10-minute flight into space. "I want to thank every Amazon employee and every Amazon customer because you guys paid for all this,” Bezos said. The flight cost $5.5 billion, and Amazon, the company Bezos founded and ran until this year, has a torrid reputation for worker treatment and low pay. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted Bezos on Twitter, and late night TV hosts got their hits in as well.
