Amazon Removed 900+ Reviews of Hillary Clinton’s New Book

The online retailer claims that they “never suppress reviews based on star rating or sentiment.”

In an unprecedented move, online retailer Amazon deleted over 900 customer reviews of Hillary Clinton’s new book, “What Happened,” that gave the book just one star.

When “What Happened,” was released on Tuesday, the book received a majority of one-star reviews from customers, causing the book to receive an overall average of just three out of five stars from customer reviews.

Amazon has now deleted over 900 of those one-star views according to reporting done by LifeZette, bringing the book’s average customer review to five out of five stars.

In a statment, Amazon told LifeZette:

“We never suppress reviews based on star rating or sentiment,” Amazon told LifeZette in an emailed statement. “We have triggers in place to detect when numerous reviews post in a short amount of time that are unrelated to the product. When these triggers are activated, we suppress all non-Amazon Verified Purchase (AVP) reviews on the product.”
