Amazon.ca will be removing the offensive products from the site. “We’re aware that our services reflect on our business and we do want to make sure that our site is safe and convenient for all buyers and sellers, and for that reason there are rules governing the listing of certain items. In this case, we’ve forwarded this to the correct team internally with high priority. I assure that we will remove all these types of products from our site immediately,” an Amazon representative told BuzzFeed.
