However, days after the announcement petitions titles ‘Do not allow Jeff Bezos to return to Earth’ started popping up. Moreover, nearly 28,000 people signed the petition ‘Do not allow Jeff Bezos to return to Earth’ on Change.org. This further included some comments where signatories expressed their reason. According to one of the signatory:
“Wealth Inequality is the greatest evil on Earth. No one deserves billions of dollars while others suffer the stress of working full time and not being able to pay for necessities.”
Another signatory mentioned how Bezos committed crimes against humanity and the fact that he should pay for his wrongdoings:
“Jeff Bezos is a super-villain. His exploitation of his workers and his refusal to use his power and privilege for the good of humankind may be acceptable in space. But here on earth, they are crimes against humanity and he should not be allowed to enter this planet without atoning for his grievous sins.”
All in all, it seems that the public is sticking with their opinion of Bezos of avoiding global tax rules and other regulations on the Earth. Blue Origin will initiate its first suborbital sightseeing trip on its spacecraft on July 20th.
