PEOPLE who have been complaining about the evils of Amazon for years have been forced to admit that the Saudi Arabian Royal family might just have the edge.
Following claims that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman hacked Amazon boss Jeff Bezos’s phone, critics have compared the two hugely powerful organisations and found Amazon not the worst offender.
Employment laywer Susan Traherne said: “Amazon’s warehouse conditions are virtual slavery. But, you know, not quite actual slavery. Like a wage is paid.
“And yes, it’s dystopian the way they harvest our data and force other stores out of business and all that, but compared to dismembering a journalist that suddenly doesn’t seem so bad.
“There is a human cost to getting a new charger cable delivered by 9pm that day, but then there’s running a whole country where women are treated as chattel, imprisoned and tortured.
“Plus Osama bin Laden and most of the September 11 hijackers were Saudi, and nobody’s even tried to pin that on Amazon. They still mainly did books then.”
She concluded: “So ultimately Saudi Arabia is worse. But there’s still nothing to watch on Prime.”
