Amazon dropped the ‘Black Lives Matter’ network from its charity platform this week after new documents show the organization violated state’s rules and other regulations related to online donations.
“States have rules for nonprofits, and organizations participating in AmazonSmile need to meet those rules,” an Amazon spokesperson said. “Unfortunately this organization fell out of compliance with the rules in several states, so we’ve had to temporarily suspend them from the program until they come into compliance.”
The group can be reinstated when they’re “back in compliance.”
BLM released its overdue tax filings on February 11th, showing the organization spent no money on grants between January and June.
