Backlash over ‘Black Lives Don’t Matter’ caps sold on Amazon
Thursday 24 Sep 2020 7:10 pm



Amazon has faced criticism for selling hats with the slogan ‘Black Lives Don’t Matter’ after a barrister tweeted about the item. The online marketplace has since removed the item which were being sold by a third party and advertised as a ‘nice present’. It comes just over a week after the retailer was slammed for selling T-shirts that read ‘Let’s Make Down Syndrome Extinct’. The racist hat was spotted by Alexandra Wilson, 25, from Essex, who said it was ‘honestly embarrassing’ that it was being sold, and questioned whether Amazon Marketplace had any checks in place. Wilson told the Independent it was ‘really disappointing’ that it took some time before the hats were taken down. She said: ‘Multiple people reported it and racist material should be removed immediately.
