Elon Musk calls for ‘break up’ of Amazon
Elon Musk calls for the “break up” of Amazon, following a dispute about a coronavirus e-book.
The entrepreneur came to the defence of an author after Amazon’s Kindle publishing division rejected his book about the coronavirus pandemic.
Mr Musk tagged Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos in a tweet, saying the decision was “insane”, adding: “Time to break up Amazon.”
Amazon said the book had been removed in error and would be reinstated.
The author of the book, Alex Berenson, caught Mr Musk’s attention by tweeting a screenshot from Amazon, which told him that his book about the pandemic did not meet its guidelines.
