Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world with an estimated net worth of over $109 billion. But then, even the richest man on this planet cannot buy a few things, which include the silence of the people on the internet on his actions, and people stating facts which can deem as collateral damage to his public image.
The Amazon founder was in the news recently for making a donation of over $98.5 million towards various organisations across 23 states in the USA working to give homeless people a decent way of life. Now 98 freaking million dollars is a lot of money, like insane amount right?
However, when you sit and do some maths, a quick round of calculation will tell you that this is close to just like one percent of someone's wealth when their net worth is around 109 billion dollars!
So, people on the internet are feeling that this is kind of a petty move and he could have done better.
That's 0.09% of your net worth.
Just pay your taxes. https://t.co/KEke1NUE8E
#JeffBezos gave $98 million to homeless organizations (which I'm sure are corrupt ones). His donation
Is the equivalent of someone giving $45 if they make $50,000 a year. Plus he doesn't pay any taxes.
Some people tried to give more perspective explaining how saving on all that tax money, the world's richest dude could do so much more, if he wanted.
Jeff Bezos makes $60,000 every 24 seconds.
Every 24 seconds, he adds a living wage to his bank account.
Every second, he makes enough money to feed hundreds of homeless people.
Jeff Bezos could buy a $150,000 house for every homeless person in America and still have almost $20 BILLION in personal wealth— Carl Gibson (@crgibs) November 23, 2019 November 25, 2019
There are some people who wholeheartedly supported this move and are clueless as to why he is being trolled for making a donation.
You can feed a kid at month with your income, but... Would you? With the money you buy a drink any other Saturday you can buy food for one person... But are you doing so? Easy to expend someone else's money ð¤¦ð½âï¸ð— Brunella Diez (@brunella10) November 24, 2019
How about he just employs 650,000 people instead.... oh wait.. 98 million to the homeless and y'all want more. who's selfish here? Amazon has directly shifted the way we receive products. + get used to it because guess what, Amazon's only getting richer— Caileb Stanley (@cailebs) November 25, 2019
Looks like, there is no way to win but honestly, I don't think the man cares because we say what we want but Amazon is only getting richer.
