Amazon praised Marcus Rashford and it didn’t end well for them – 5 favourite takedowns
Over on Twitter, Amazon – or to be specific, Amazon Prime Video Sport – thought it would praise footballer Marcus Rashford who is doing so much to help disadvantaged children right now with his free school meals campaign.
Except whoever runs @primevideosport maybe didn’t properly think it through when they tweeted this.
Rashford is indeed a national hero. Except it turns out that lots of people think that Amazon and its owner Jeff Bezos is a national something else.

Amazon paid just £293 million in UK tax last year after logging revenues of almost £14bn. The company is valued at £1.4 trillion.
And Bezos has enough wealth to feed hungry children for years to come & still remain the world's richest man. Miss us with this performative bs. https://t.co/AWYYiFp3R3

Jeff Bezos, as if you needed reminding, is the worlds richest person with a reported fortune of around US$193 billion (£148 billion).
A spokesperson for Amazon told the HuffPost that the firm delivered 1 million free breakfasts to UK school children in May in a partnership with charity Magic Breakfast.
They added: We are investing heavily in creating jobs and infrastructure across the UK more than £23bn since 2010. The UK has now become one of Amazons largest global hubs for talent and this year we announced plans to create 10,000 new jobs in the country by the end of 2020, taking our total workforce to over 40,000.
This continued investment helped contribute to a total tax contribution of £1.1 billion during 2019 £293m in direct taxes and £854m in indirect taxes.
