And stay there!
Nearly 165,000 people want billionaire Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to stay in space after he launches himself into orbit Tuesday.
As of about 9 a.m. Tuesday, when the Amazon founder blasted into space, more than 164,000 have signed a Change.org petition entitled “Do not allow Jeff Bezos to return to Earth.”
“Billionaires should not exist…on earth, or in space, but should they decide the latter, they should stay there,” snarked the petition.
Bezos, the world’s richest person, on Tuesday was set to launch into space on his company Blue Origin’s first commercial flight.
The joking plea to keep Bezos from returning to Earth comes after a separate petition with the same stated goal racked up hundreds of thousands of signatures.
As of June 21, more than 20,000 people signed another petition, which is similarly titled “Petition To Not Allow Jeff Bezos Re-Entry To Earth.”
