Amazon Suffers Viral Scrutiny After Exposé

Brands as disruptive and ubiquitous as Amazon often find themselves a part of the ever-churning viral news current.

Same day delivery; drone delivery; Prime Day. Each of these developments stands to fundamentally alter their respective verticals. And yet, for all of Amazon's formidability, it found itself the focus of a toxic New York Times exposé of its business operations and working conditions.

Although such negativity as this rarely persists through a couple of news cycles, the tide and tone of social conversations about Amazon have taken a decidedly unfavorable turn this week and could prove as damaging as a corporate data breach or major marketing faux pas.
