Billionaire Jeff Bezos tried to channel Lizzo and was read for filth by the entire internet
Lizzo fans of the world unite! The singer snapped a selfie with Amazon chief executive and founder Jeff Bezos and fans had thoughts.
Lizzo, whose music is the opium of the people, was one of many stars studding the Super Bowl to catch Shakira and Jennifer Lopez perform, as well as some sort of sports thing happening.
Bezos, who has nothing to lose but his taxes, was also in the crowd and grabbed a quick picture with the “Juice” singer.
“I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100 per cent Lizzo’s biggest fan,” the businessperson tweeted Sunday evening.

While Bezos might be a big fan of Lizzo, some Twitter users were sufficiently unimpressed by the pair and everyone made the same joke over and over again.

Jeff Bezos: Do Amazon ‘not pay their taxes’?
Bezos, whose net worth is $150 billion, is the world’s richest person and helms Amazon, a profitable tech giant with a trillion dollar valuation.
Critics have chided the company, however, for paying no federal taxes for two consecutive years, according to a report published by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy in 2019.
As much as customers enjoy having everything from board games to ear plugs delivered to their door within a day, Amazon’s near non-existent federal tax payment has seen lawmakers such as Bernie Sanders slam Bezos.
Moreover, the think-tank noted that Amazon’s tax-free break was the result of, in part, the Trump administration’s corporation friendly tax cuts.
Amazon has a well-documented track record of embracing tax legislation littered with loopholes, and made headlines in 2018 when representatives connived a Seattle major to repeal a tax that would have helped the city’s homeless population.
