Public Outcry Gets Amazon To Remove Pedophile Guide From Inventory

People were outraged with Amazon and used social media to tell them that their sale of the ebook "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure" and their defense of doing so would lose them customers.

Yesterday Twitter was filled with disgusted comments for Amazon and people tweeted their intentions of boycotting the company and return purchases.

The listing was subsequently pulled, though Amazon initially defended its decision.

"Amazon believes it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable. Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions," the company released in a statement.

News stations, talk shows and other media got behind the Twitter buzz. At least two Facebook pages were created with over 9,000 members.
