The sleepsuit pink bed “in Black Life Does not matter,” with the cross in the place of two of these letters, and is sold by a company called KuLuKo.
According to the announcement, the baby held of ships from China and has been on sale since the month of August 2019. The same company also sells Black-Life of the Material of the garment, without a doubt targeted towards the people who support the cause.
Amazon Canada has not responded to CTV News request for information on registration, and which screening protocols, if applicable, the company uses before allowing to sell items on its website.
A Vancouver woman who came through the list, while online shopping said that she was shocked to see something like this sold by a major retailer.
“I wouldn’t put it past people to try to sell this kind of garbage and hate speech online,” said Mireille, who asked that her last name not be used. “I’m just surprised that a big company like Amazon would not have taken these precautions to ensure something like this doesn’t happen. ”
Mireille, told CTV News, she tried to reach out to Amazon through several different channels to have the list taken down before contact the support.
Amazon has been a strong supporter of the continuation of the movement to address systemic racism, and earlier this month donated $ 10 million to a number of organisations involved in the field of social justice, including the Black Lives Matter and the NAACP.
CEO Jeff Bezos also publicly responded to an email of complaint he received on the company’s support for the Black Lives Matter by calling the author ” the kind of client that I’m happy to lose you. ”
According to the Amazon website, international sellers are bound by a number of obligations, including that they only offer items that they are allowed “to sell” and ” able to deliver to the customer on time, every time. ”
Mireille said that even some of the clothes that she found on the site to support Black Lives Matter left a bad taste in her mouth, as she sucks the sellers are trying to personally profit for what she believes is a great movement.
“People are trying to make money off of what is happening now – this is not to help the cause,” she said. “It is not fine with me. “
