AmazonSmile Charity Platform Drops Black Lives Matter as Org Dodges Calls for Financial Transparency

E-commerce giant Amazon has removed the Black Lives Matter organization from its AmazonSmile charity platform as the organization faces increasing financial scrutiny. Amazon previously was a major cheerleader for Black Lives Matter, including making large donations to the group and a notorious incident in which founder Jeff Bezos scolded a customer for saying “All Lives Matter” in an email.
