In a move that beggars belief, Amazon allow a reseller to sell the t shirt below, in a range of pretty colours, and no less than 8 others with similar rape related slogans. Below the image, you can see a transcript of the chat I have just had with an (obviously) un-briefed customer agent. We’ll see what happens.
The reseller by the way is called “clothing store”. Do what you like with that information.
You are now connected to Leno from Amazon.co.uk.Me:Hello – What the heck (trying to be polite here) is this all about?Leno:Hello, my name is Leno.Thank you for contacting Amazon.co.uk. May I know your name, please?Me:Tony is my name. Hello.Leno:Hi TonyI will surely assist you betterCould you please elaborate your query?Me:Yes, I can. Somewhat feeling the rage at the moment – not at you, you understand, but at Amazon. In a country where 100,000 women are raped every year, you are allowing to be sold through your site, rape promoting clothing, eg: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Keep-Black-Jersey-T-Shirt-Heather/dp/B007EYDLTW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1362178158&sr=8-2If you want to keep my custom, (and that of many other people I am reading on twitter right now) you need to get them removed from your site.Leno:I understand your concern Tony.Thanks for bringing this to our notice.I will now surely forward your feedback right away.You will be notified within 2 business days.Is there anything else I can do for you today?Me:Thanks – I will expect a reply telling me they have been removed. Thanks for your help.
