AMAZON APOLOGISES – BUT IS THIS GOOD ENOUGH?

Well guys, an update on this.

24 hours after these offensive slogans about rape were found on the internet giant’s Amazon website, Amazon has APOLOGISED. Mainstream media were very slow at picking up the story which had been buzzing around social media 6 or 7 hours before it hit the mainstream. Just goes to show the galvanising power of twitter, facebook, youtube etc as a force for good.

Hopefully now Amazon will learn a lesson for the future, and avoid using algorithms that generate such hate-filled messages. They have promised to remove the line from their website.

But will we trust them now? What do you guys think?
