Amazon…….WTF???

12-14-13

Dear Amazon.com,

It was brought to my attention today that there were some inappropriate ‘Sponsored Links’ on my book’s product page.
I am horrified and repulsed beyond your comprehension.
Please click on the photo below and take a good look at the screen-shot.

Amazon-"Wanna See Raping?"  WTF?

Amazon-“Wanna See Raping?” WTF?

What problems did you find?

‘Wanna see Raping?”
Do I have to explain to you why this is not only offensive, but criminal?
As one of the largest market places in the world you could be using your power to influence good as I have with my book
One Voice Raised: A Triumph Over Rape.
Instead you allow repulsive Sponsored Links like:

“Check out Rape” “Wanna See Rape” and “RapeVideos” to freely appear on my page.

How dare you!?!

I am trying to raise awareness and create an environment where victims and survivors feel safe and supported.
I am looking forward to the day when all of us who have suffered abuse, rape and sexual assault
are greeted by a world of trust and understanding.
A world that looks at the survivor and does not see what the rapist has done and does not condemn the survivor for being the
victim. I am looking forward to a world where all survivors find their voice and speak out against these heinous crimes.

Amazon, your endorsement of criminal behavior and repulsion is a clear indication of the problems my dream faces.

You disgust me.

My next step is to make your horrible choice of supporting sexually abusive behavior be seen by as many people as possible.
I sure hope this goes viral so millions see the horror that was revealed on my own product page today.

You don’t care.

Most Sincerely,
Jennifer Wheatley-Wolf
Author of: One Voice Raised: A Triumph Over Rape

Please share this post. Amazon must be stopped and you can help. Thank you.

One thought on “Amazon…….WTF???

  1. I am running a special on my book in the UK so this morning I went to check the listing to see if the price was as it should be. Guess what? Same crap going on there as on Amazon.com . Most of the links look legit, but ” Rapevideos” sure as hell isn’t. This time I clicked on the link hoping it would lead nowhere…Unfortunately, I was connected to a full page of porno links. A reporter from The Capital is working on the story, but I think it much bigger than Annapolis. Can’t seem to get the attention of anyone big enough to really do anything constructive (like nation-wide exposure of Amazon.com’s roll in this) please share this. Thanks
