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. Log in to Reply Union buster, tax dodger, worker exploiter. What reason would anyone have to like him? Log in to Reply Because he dosent pay tax Log in to Reply 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. Log in to Reply 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. Log in to Reply Op is a troll and everybody is just feeding the shit out of him omg Log in to Reply He is crushing small business and manipulating the financial market. Edit for spelling. Log in to Reply Because he could do so much good in the world, but actively chooses not to. Log in to Reply Because he is sussy Log in to Reply because he is (how rich?) and he does nothing for the world while taking full advantage of everyone who is stuck working for him Log in to Reply Fast capitalism is destroying the planet, economies, and communities Log in to Reply I don’t like when he licks his eyeballs. Log in to Reply He made a flying penis in the sky Log in to Reply The Thanos of retail. Log in to Reply Part of it is jealousy. Part of it is the working conditions of Amazon employees. Log in to Reply He is a modern day self-declared pharaoh handing out pittances to thousands of workers so that he may feel glorious and leave a substantial legacy. Log in to Reply he a self absorbed asshole that treats the people who made him a billionaire like fucking garbage and denies them basic human rights. Log in to Reply If you ask anyone who loves space/space exploration, it’s the Sue Origin company that he founded, that does it for us. Log in to Reply 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 Log in to Reply 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. Log in to Reply For the same reason I hate most billionaires, they have the power and influence to make things better for a good chunk of the planet and don’t. Log in to Reply 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. Log in to Reply 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 Log in to Reply 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 Log in to Reply Because of what he stands for! A future that leaves only death and destruction for my generation so that he can live for money! Log in to Reply 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. Log in to Reply Because he’s rich, and people hate rich people. Even the Bible talks down on the rich. Log in to Reply 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. Log in to Reply big man bad Log in to Reply I don’t hate or like him, I do like that he likes rockets! Log in to Reply Amazon pressures anyone over a certain sales numbers for names of their manufacturers and suppliers, so they can compete with their own sellers. Log in to Reply 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 Log in to Reply His personality for starters. His treatment of employees. His whining about being way behind SpaceX. That’s it for me. Log in to Reply 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. Log in to Reply Plus he stole the moment from William Shatner by interrupting him and then spraying champagne for the cameras. Log in to Reply 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 Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
