MacKenzie Bezos pledges half her fortune to charity

MacKenzie Bezos, the former wife of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, pledged on Tuesday to give half of her $36 billion fortune to charity. Bezos was one of 19 people on Tuesday to join the ’Giving Pledge’, a campaign announced in 2010 by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates. It calls for the super-rich to give away more than half their fortunes during their lifetimes or in their wills.

'Her' fortune. It's like giving away Monopoly money. The story should be 'a quarter of Jeff Bezos fortune goes to charity'

1. It's all for tax evasion. 2. Ain't even the bitches money in the first place so double penalty for acting "generous" with other people's money.

You guys are really too much. You're honestly criticizing her for giving to charity? Seriously? Also, it's 100% her money because she was supporting Jeff while he was pursuing his career. At least one of the Bezo's is charitable.

This is socialism 101. Take from those who earn and give it to those who do not. Then pat yourself on the back for being so generous with other people's money. It's disgusting that she would even consider taking half of what he earned, that's what's sick in this whole thing. Can Jeff take the tax deduction since 1/4 of what he earned was given to charity? Well, no one ever said life is fair. Don't be surprised when men start wising up and require prenups before getting married. You can't afford not to these days. Why do we even split 50/50 on divorces anymore? Women are just as capable of working as men are, are they not? Where are all the feminists now, hmmm?

They were married in 1993! Way before Amazon and Their Fortune, (big letters, big bucks). Even Jeff admires what she is doing. He knows she was there from the beginning. Tax exemptions aside, it is as much one Partner's as the other and it is she who has the guts and intelligence to be as selfless as she is.

"“In addition to whatever assets life has nurtured in me, I have a disproportionate amount of money to share,” MacKenzie Bezos" I wonder if she was so charitable during the divorce settlement negotiations. It's so easy to give away money you never earned.

It's a good start, so long as she's not following the socialists. If she is, it's not enough.

Giving half of another person's money doesn't make you generous.

She should buy all the Hot Pockets and Rice Crispies in the world. Then make a weird castle 🏰 out of them and declare herself Queen of Hotpocrispia.

Divorce. the best way for a woman to make millions (or in this case billions) of dollars by doing nothing but being in a relationship, and you seriously expect me to believe that women aren't *actually* privileged in western society. Sure, men have privilege too. The privilege of indentured financial servitude to the woman via the state, unless the woman says otherwise. Women know they have this power, simps know they have this power, but to call it what it is gets you labeled a woman hater to detract from the facts.
