Jeff Bezos is getting slammed on social media for making "tone-deaf" comments after his space flight. 

The Amazon billionaire blasted off to the edge of space with three others yesterday on a rocket designed by his Blue Origin space company, and held a press conference after the eleven-minute flight. 

During his comments he thanked "every Amazon employee and every Amazon customer," adding "you guys paid for all this." 

The comments didn't fly with Amazon customers online, who called it tone-deaf, and asked Bezos for a refund.
