More than 13,000 Amazon customers have signed a letter urging Amazon to sever ties with businessman and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

More than 13,000 Amazon customers have signed a letter urging Amazon to sever business ties with businessman and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to the group behind the letter.

A national women’s advocacy group, UltraViolet, announced Monday that the Amazon customers who’ve signed the letter include more than 5,000 who pay for the $99-per-year Amazon Prime subscription.

Additionally, more than 50,000 UltraViolet members have signed a separate petition with a similar message.

Espousing “equality at a higher frequency,” UltraViolet seeks “to fight sexism and expand women’s rights, from politics and government to media and pop culture,” according to its website.

The letter addressed to Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos begins:

“As an Amazon customer, I am deeply disappointed that you have yet to sever your business relationship with Donald Trump. His hatred should have no place in the Amazon marketplace.”

It ends by urging Amazon to follow the lead of Macy’s, which stopped selling Trump’s menswear collection last year following his controversial comments about Mexican immigrants.

Karin Roland, chief campaigns officer at UltraViolet, says in Monday’s news release:

“Donald Trump has consistently lobbed racist, sexist, and xenophobic attacks against entire groups of people, encouraged violence and vitriol against his political enemies and perpetuated a culture of violence against women. Amazon.com should want to distance themselves from this hateful rhetoric, but instead, they’re profiting off his brand.”

CNN Money reports that Trump currently has eight items on Amazon but points out that even if Amazon stopped selling Trump’s clothing products, Amazon would still profit from third-party sellers who sell Trump-related products like campaign merchandise on Amazon.

As of this morning, searching Amazon for “Donald Trump” yielded more than 20,000 results.

What’s your take on this? Do you think Amazon should listen to petitioners who are pushing the company to stop selling Trump products? Sound off in our Forums. It’s the place where you can speak your mind, explore topics in-depth, and post questions and get answers.
