Seriously @amazon, can you explain how this mask is even being sold. You definitely need to donate to #GeorgeFloyd’s family if any of these sold. #BlackLivesMatter https://t.co/gJtoKG4w21 pic.twitter.com/253W1XEV1f— Tia A. Ewing (@TIA_EWING) June 8, 2020

So really #Amazon thinks it's ok to allow a seller to sell face mask and scarfs with an image of George Floyd lifeless body laying dead for a profit #thisisnotok #disrespectful pic.twitter.com/s5LUVDyJAv— Nikki J (@NikkiJ62527557) June 8, 2020
Hey @amazon you need to immediately scrub the items sold under “I can’t breathe mask.” The actual murder photo of George Floyd is being sold on your site right now. This is incredibly traumatizing and disgusting and needs to be immediately removed.— masks save lives (@ventogrrl) June 7, 2020
Amazon really added a mask of an image of George Floyd’s dead body?! Why is everyone trying to profit off this man’s death, joking, or mocking him? Just proves how ignorant and childish this society is. Nobody takes things seriously it’s all about getting clout, pitiful..— Warrior (@MellaSoldier) June 8, 2020

This is from a concerned member of at least 5yrs. One of your vendors are selling a mask depicting Chauvin with his knee on #GeorgeFloyd neck; A black man who was lynched publicly. This is not ok. Please remove this or I will be forced to remove my Prime Membership. pic.twitter.com/zcJR219Ljy
