Amazon’s Jeff Bezos Gave Less Money to Australia Than Metal Band Metallica

Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, who made around $215 million PER DAY in 2018, is feeling the wrath of Twitter after it was revealed he donated only $690,00 US dollars to Australian bushfire relief. After Bezos posted his pledge on Instagram Sunday, people starting coming for the guy, who is worth over $116 billion, for giving so little. One Twitter user pointed out that Metallica gave at least $750,000 of their own money. Another user said “Hey, the girl who traded nudes for donations gave more money than you! She at least drummed up $700,000!”
