Amazon workers really left their mark on conservative pundit Candace Owens‘ new book — including in Vaseline, she claims.
The outspoken Owens took to Twitter to accuse the retail giant’s employees of damaging her tome, “Blackout.”
“Dear @amazon. About 1,000 people have written to let me know that your employees appear to be stomping on and in this case, smearing Vaseline on my books before mailing them. I know it must have pained you to ship out all 90,000 copies you had in stock— but this is unacceptable,” she wrote Saturday afternoon.
Owens included pictures of the book with what appeared to be smear marks on the cover.
She followed up with a call to her 2.6 million followers to snatch up the book.
“The pettiness will do nothing to thwart sales. Let’s try to get the next 100,000 that I plan to sell out of your warehouse, treated with a bit more respect by the looney lefties packing the product, please,” Owens tweeted.
Her tweet was followed by hundreds of replies from fans alleging they had received similarly tarnished booked in the mail.
“How disappointing!” one woman wrote.
“Mine arrived from Amazon yesterday and I just assumed something had gotten on it by accident!”
“Mine came with a smeared cover as well! Sad to know it’s not a fluke,” another said.
Amazon did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
