When Hillary Clinton's new political memoir, What Happened, came out, internet trolls tried to give it the worst one-star rating on Amazon, but Amazon wasn't having it.
Of the, already 1,508 Amazon reviews of WHAT HAPPENED by Hillary Clinton, only 308 are verified purchases. The haters are hard at work.— EmilyBeforeItWasCool (@EmilyBeforeCool) September 13, 2017
No Clinton fan, but Hillary's 500 page book was released today and there's already a flood of 1 star Amazon reviews from Trump's manbabies— Ethan Croft (@EthanTheFirst) September 12, 2017
Amazon deleted all 1 star evaluations of Hillary's new book. CENSORSHIP is Un-American.— Doug Davis (@TeaPartyLivesOn) September 13, 2017
But it turns out that's not how it works. Amazon's system can detect an unusually large amount of reviewing activity in a short period of time. When that happens, Amazon removes non-verified purchase reviews.
We never suppress reviews based on star rating or sentiment. Reviews are meant to help customers by providing real feedback on a product from other customers who have tried it. There are many other forums available across the Internet to discuss topics of interest outside of the products on Amazon.
It's been ten months since the election, but Clinton haters gotta hate.
