Jeff Bezos Interrupted By Indian-American Activist On Stage During Amazon’s Conference

| Published on June 9, 2019

It’s twice in a row for Jeff Bezos now! While earlier where the Amazon founder & CEO was interrupted by one of the company’s stakeholder with her query about returning products, it is now an Indian-American animal rights activist who managed to make her way onto the stage during Amazon’s re:Mars conference asking Bezos to do something about the “chicken farms”.

Bezos who was in the middle of his fire chat during Amazon’s first ever re:MARS conference was cut in by Priya Sawhney of Berkeley, California who made an unexpected appearance on the stage and shouted “You are the world’s richest man and President of Amazon and you can help the animals”.

Saying that she has been inside “Amazon’s chicken farms”, Sawhney yelled at Bezos to stop the abuses of animals in these facilities.

In a matter of no time she was surrounded by security guards who then took her away as the packed house went silent. 

Sawhney world for the Direct Action Everywhere (DXE), which is an international grassroots networked of animal rights activists founded in 2013 in the San Francisco. 

Responding to the situation Bezos turned to the moderator and said “Do you have a response to that?”

Interestingly Amazon doesn’t directly own or operate chicken farms but it buys chicken meat from suppliers that have been previously targeted by the DXE activists.

While there have been no reports on the activist’s arrest, we pray for Bezos to not get used to interruptions.
