Bezos slammed for rocket celebration after 6 workers died in tornado
The richest two-legged egg in the world is being torn apart after failing to mention Amazon factory workers who unfortunately perished in yesterday’s tornado, and instead celebrated the launch of its New Shepard rocket.
Given the terrible fallout from the tornado currently sweeping the United States, Jeff Bezos‘the enthusiasm for the last trip proved to be incredibly tactless.
Yesterday it was reported that six of the billionaire’s warehouse workers have died after the tornado reached Illinois. Fortunately 45 people were rescued from the building, although first responders said more people could be trapped under the rubble.
Edwardsville Fire Chief James whiteford described the grim situation to reporters stating that his team were “now only focused on recovery … we don’t think anyone can survive at that point”.
Bezos’ decision to focus his attention on his rocket launch without giving the families of his six deceased employees any mercy was silly, to say the least. Public outrage was reflected in a tweet from a user who posted a heartbreaking image of the destroyed Amazon warehouse alongside an image of Bezos congratulating one of the crew of the rocket.

Perhaps the most poignant, sane roast of all was this next tweet that asked why fk Amazon workers were being forced to show up for work. given tornado warnings.
Instead of celebrating Jeff Bezos’ absurd space hobby (now worth $ 198 billion), perhaps corporate media might want to ask Mr. Bezos why Amazon forced its employees to take over the business. work during tornado warnings that killed at least two people. https://t.co/F4cPXLrUWg

Given his selfish and listless demeanor, it’s no surprise that when Bezos flew into space in the Penis Rocket â¢, a petition that collected 10,000 signatures was created to block his return to Earth.
As of this writing, it is unfortunately still there, although we have not given up hope.
