Days after billionaire Jeff Bezos announced he would be flying to space, multiple petitions are launched to stop the Amazon CEO’s return to Earth. Two of those petitions have collectively gathered over 56,000 signatures.
On June 7, Bezos said that he would be getting to space together with his brother Mark Bezos, when his space exploration company Blue Origin launches its first flight carrying humans. The rocket will flee on July 20. However, multiple change.org petitions have already emerged and garnered thousands of signatures, so as to prevent the billionaire from returning to the earth.
The most popular petition has quite 39,000 signatures and it’s just increasing by the minute. “Billionaires’ shouldn’t exist…on earth, or in space, but should they decide the latter they ought to stay there,” said the outline of the petition.
Another petition that echoes an equivalent sentiment has accumulated almost 20,000 signatures. The petitioner, within the description, linked Bezos to conspiracy theories, secret societies, and comic villains, believing it as enough reason to stop him from entering the earth. They theorized that Bezos was Lex Luthor, a fictional supervillain from the DC Comics universe. “He’s actually an evil overlord hellbent on global domination… this might be our last chance before they allow the 5G microchips and perform a mass takeover,” said the outline.

Needless to mention, netizens are quite amused by this turn of events and are sharing the petitions, asking others to sign them. Some are sharing hilarious reasons for not wanting Bezos back on earth.
“I want to travel on this flight because it’s a thing I wanted to try to do all my life,” said Bezos within the Instagram video. “It’s an adventure.” Memes erupted on social media after his announcement. He will take an 11-minute flight, about a fortnight after he steps down because of the CEO of Amazon.com inc.
This is not the sole Jeff Bezos petition to form waves recently. Another petition asked Jeff Bezos to shop for and eat Mona Liza gained tons of traction.
