High profile couples always manage to garner a lot of attention. And when we are talking about none other than the world’s richest man Jeff Bezos, obviously everything about him becomes extremely important, including his divorce. The netizens, especially Twitterati, went berserk having found the juiciest gossip to ruminate about. Alexa jokes are trending and how! While it’s indeed sad to see the couple splitting, some of the jokes did manage to crack us up.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife are divorcing. Thankfully, Bezos came with a no-hassle return policy.— MAD Magazine (@MADmagazine) January 9, 2019
Ever since the Amazon CEO has released a statement on Twitter announcing the news, the social media and his 732,000 followers have gone into a tizzy. “As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we’ve decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends,” the couple wrote. The carefully worded note was delivered without the intervention of media or newspaper for a typical press release.
While media columnist Michael Wolff called it ‘a new model of narrative control’, it wouldn’t be wrong to say Bezos did hit the right tone with his simple, straight-from-the-heart message. Here’s what one of the users had commented, “Your divorce sounds better than most people’s marriages.”
Twitterati is now busy coming up with its own renditions of Alexa jokes and how the couple can seek help from the AI assistant in the legal work that follows.

“Alexa, end my marriage”
While the jokes will continue to pour in, we hope that the separation happens in the most amicable manner. And we are certainly not enjoying the breaking of this union. All we can do is ask Alexa to play – ‘Someone Like You’!
