It’s no secret I loathe Jeff Bezos, who treats his employees horrifically—Amazon drivers are given bottles to pee into so they don’t have to stop for breaks—and makes billions during a pandemic because he forced his employees to return to work or lose their jobs. In addition, the mothef%er is spending billions building a rocket so he can go into space where no one can hear their employees scream.
Look, I get it, it’s his money, but perhaps he should take a note from his ex-wife Mackenzie
Just recently Mackenzie and her new husband Dan Jewett made a $2.74 billion … yes, billion with a ‘b’ … donation “to organizations that focus on the arts and combating racial discrimination.” This brings the total of her charitable donations to $8.5 billion … again, ‘b’ … in the last year while her husband tries to prove his manhood by building a rocket so he can be the first rich white billionaire asshat in space.
MacKenzie detailed her continued efforts to fulfill The Giving Pledge she signed in May of 2019—her new husband also signed that pledge—with the help of a team of “researchers and administrators and advisors” to ensure their donations make the greatest impact possible, saying:
“People struggling against inequities deserve center stage in stories about change they are creating. This is equally—perhaps especially—true when their work is funded by wealth. Any wealth is a product of a collective effort that included them. The social structures that inflate wealth present obstacles to them. And despite those obstacles, they are providing solutions that benefit us all.”
Look, I don’t think she’s purposely trying to make her husband look like a self-entitled one-percent prick, but it is an added bonus.
Sidenote, Mackenzie Scott is worth about $59 billion.
