Edge On The Clock: Amazon Pulls Offensive Auschwitz Ornaments
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Ornament outrage. Amazon has pulled a series of Christmas ornaments (and more) that show the Auschwitz concentration camp. The Auschwitz Memorial’s official account tweeted about the ornaments, writing, “Selling ‘Christmas ornaments’ with images of Auschwitz does not seem appropriate. Auschwitz on a bottle opener is rather disturbing and disrespectful. We ask @amazon to remove the items of those suppliers.”
Amazon removed the items and told CNN Business: “All sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action.”
Plus, praise for 82-year-old Billy Dee Williams for using both “him” and “her” pronouns to describe his gender fluidity. And, comedian Pete Davidson is now requiring people who go to his comedy shows to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
