Shut Down by Amazon Following False Accusations of Racism — Demand Answers

Brandon Jackson came home on May 25 to discover he had been locked out of his Amazon Echo, which controlled many of his electronics — including his lights.

Why? A delivery driver claimed he heard racist slurs through the doorbell.

Jackson is black, wasn’t home, and has video showing the delivery driver wearing headphones at the time of the incident.

Even after showing proof of his innocence to Amazon, it took the company over a week to unlock his devices.

This should never have happened in the first place.

Taking protective action to guarantee the safety of employees is reasonable; shutting someone out of their own property is not.
