Action Alert:
Tell Amazon to Stop Marketing Clothing that Glamorizes Gun Violence


In the midst of the 2018 holiday season, Jeff Bezos and his electronic commerce giant Amazon are marketing a series of offensive t-shirts that glamorize gun homicide and promote misogyny.

One of the grotesque t-shirts on the Amazon website that combines misogyny with making light of gun violence.

One shirt on the Amazon website is emblazoned with the slogan NOBODY NEEDS AN AR-15? NOBODY NEEDS A WHINY LITTLE BITCH EITHER, YET HERE YOU ARE.

Another: YES…I DO HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER. I ALSO HAVE A GUN, A SHOVEL & AN ALIBI.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PD5WCG2

And: GUNS DON’T KILL PEOPLE, GRANDPAS WITH PRETTY GRANDDAUGHTERS DO, with gunshot holes in the words:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C271GMJ/

Also: IF GUNS KILL PEOPLE, I GUESS PENCILS MISSPELL WORDS, CARS DRIVE DRUNK & SPOONS MAKE PEOPLE FAT.

That is just a sampling of the clothing products being marketed by Amazon that fetishize guns, demean women, and make light of gun violence. It is unacceptable for a major corporation to be profiting significantly from our holiday spending while promoting messages that keep our communities violent. 

Please contact Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos through one of the channels below and give him the following message, personalized to your liking:

Mr. Bezos, I was disgusted to see t-shirts glamorizing gun violence and promoting misogyny being sold on the Amazon website. Those shirts include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • NOBODY NEEDS AN AR-15? NOBODY NEEDS A WHINY LITTLE BITCH EITHER, YET HERE YOU ARE
      https://www.amazon.com/Comical-Shirt-Nobody-Needs-Little/dp/B01A976WFA/
    • IF GUNS KILL PEOPLE, I GUESS PENCILS MISSPELL WORDS, CARS DRIVE DRUNK & SPOONS MAKE PEOPLE FAT
      https://www.amazon.com/Feelin-Good-Tees-Pencils-Political/dp/B00VJ8FXEU/
    • YES…I DO HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER. I ALSO HAVE A GUN, A SHOVEL & AN ALIBI
      https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PD5WCG2

These messages are unbelievably offensive in light of the millions of Americans who have been negatively affected by gun violence. Shame on youj for making light of the tragedies we have suffered and debasing women in this manner. I am canceling my Amazon Prime subscription permanently unless this clothing is pulled from the Amazon website. I will inform family and friends about the garbage you are selling as well.
