    Amazon employees have been taking down ads with religious content, causing some small sellers to take a direct hit on their sales. One Amazon seller told CNBC that the sudden ad suspension has caused a serious loss in revenue. This person has been selling apparel with Christian and bible messages on them for the last two years.


    • Amazon told some sellers that it is now blocking ads containing language about religion, after updating its ad policy.
    • An Amazon spokesperson said its policies haven’t changed and the blocking was in error, and its employees are now receiving “corrective training.”

    Does this still fall under businesses should be able to do what they want, because it’s their business?

    In other instances this comes up, the answers would be ‘yes’ or ‘no’.
