  1. Bezos has exploited the flaws in our social and economic system to make himself incredibly wealthy on the backs of others.

    So wealthy in fact he could not possibly spend all of his wealth. He could have decided to not exploit people and still had more money than he could possibly spend. He did not do that, which makes him a bad person. Now, he could decide to use that wealth to help people and the world, but he does not do that either.

    Instead he sits atop his throne of wealth like a dragon. Essentially his greed is what makes him despicable.

  2. Partially because he has become one of, the wealthiest people in the world off the backs of employees he has exploited to the point where they need to urinate in bottles to meet quotas.

  3. I don’t hate him, but I think there comes a point where people like him become so wildly disconnected from reality and their advice or input is useless to the normal human. So I just ignore the refuge that comes out of his mouth.

  4. A big part of it is that, regardless of investments, etc, the total amount of money available in the country doesn’t change (in terms of the US) except under extreme circumstances. So the more Bezos hoards, the less there is in circulation entirely. This is generally what taxes etc are for, but he exploits those. His and other billionaires’ wealth is basically a resource management game cheat.

    I say this as a business admin major

  5. I think a lot of it is not understanding wealth vs income.

    They think bezos is a billionaire so he just billions of dollars in the bank/in his bed.

    If they had a billion dollars they’d do X with it. But they don’t understand most of it isn’t liquid.

    Another good portion, is when you get big enough you have enough lawyers and accountants to do some things that are legal, but definitely come off as shady.

  6. I don’t know much about him other than he’s so unbelievably rich that he can influence how the world works and also because he sends millions of unused items to landfill every year…whilst preaching to us about pollution.

  7. I think people just wanted to jump on the hate train because of “facts” they read on twitter. Bezos is no different than any other billionaire. They all do they same thing but bezos got targeted because he was at the top. Same thing is starting to happen with musk. I’m not saying they arent bad people, just saying most people hate on them simply because everyone else does

  8. A mix of him getting rich off the backs of others, Amazon’s shitty working conditions, and him having more money than he could ever spend and not using it to help others

  9. Unless you’re been living under a rock for who-knows-how-long, it’s the way people like him (not just Jeff Bezos) exploit their workers, whether it be with unreasonable working conditions, forced overtime, low wages… pretty much any anti-worker thing you can imagine while they reap the vast, vast majority of the profits and benefits and couldn’t care less about how badly everyone else below them have it, even if they’re literally suffering.

  10. For me, it’s because he doesn’t pay taxes. If I gotta pay, so does he. I don’t care what he does with his money if it doesn’t affect me, I just think the wealthy should be held to the same standard as everyone else and pay their share.

  11. He is single handedly haning up space exploration because SpaceX has built a better transport for NASA’s needs and he wants to be a crybaby about it

  12. There’s plenty of good reasons here but let’s be fair: not everyone hates the guy. I don’t have the energy to hate him, and really can’t do anything about what he does.

    If anybody could (competition, shareholders, his ex-wife, the government) then maybe something would be done.

  13. One of the richest men in the world but donates less than the average American to charity

    I worked at Amazon for 1 year and will never buy anything from Amazon again and discourage all from doing so also
