Difficulty: 0

EVA WAS 92.

SHE DIED AT HER HOME IN SCOTT

TOWNSHIP.

FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS HAVE NOT

BEEN RELEASED.

PENNSYLVANIA'S FIRST LADY,

GISELE FEDDERMAN, IS SPEAK OUT

AGAINST AN ANTI-IMMIGRANT DECAL

SHE SAW IN A NEIGHBORHOOD.

SHE'S FROM BRAZIL AND BECAME A

U.S. CITIZEN LATER IN LIFE.

BRENDA WATERS EXPLAINS HOW

GISELE FEDDERMAN GOT AMAZON TO

STOP SELLING THE DECAL AND HAS

HER REACTION TO THAT.

Reporter: IT'S SOLD AS AN

ANTI-IMMIGRANT VINYL WINDOW OR

BUMPER STICKER.

IT SHOWS THE FULL MAP OF THE

UNITED STATES BUT IT SAYS

EXPLETIVE, WE ARE FULL.

WELL, THE WRONG PERSON HAPPENED

TO SEE THAT STICKER.

GISELE FEDDERMAN.

IT WAS MEAN AND HATEFUL.

AND I WONDERED MANY THINGS.

Reporter: IT WAS HERE AT

THIS INTERSECTION IN WEST

MIFFLIN WHERE PENNSYLVANIA'S

SECOND LADY SAID SHE SAW THE

STICKER ON A TRUCK AS A DRIVER

SAT IN TRAFFIC.

FEDDERMAN, WHO IS MARRIED TO

THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR,

GOOGLED THE STICKER TO FIND OUT

WHO SOLD IT.

SHE FOUND OUT IT WAS AMAZON, SO

SHE REACHED OUT TO THE WORLD'S

LARGEST ONLINE MARKETPLACE.

SO I JUST SENT A SIMPLE,

SWEET KIND OF TWEET TO AMAZON

ASKING THEM TO, YOU KNOW,

RECONSIDER THEIR POWER AND

THEIR PLATFORM AND THEIR

RESPONSIBILITY TO PUT SOMETHING

THAT WAS SO, YOU KNOW, REALLY

GLORIFYING HATE OUT INTO THE

MASSES.

Reporter: SEVERAL PEOPLE

RETWEETED FEDDERMAN'S POST.

THE NOISE GOT ATTENTION WITHIN

A DAY.

AMAZON RESPONDED, QUOTE, THANK

YOU FOR LETTING US KNOW, WE'RE

REMOVING AND ITEM AND

ADDRESSING THIS WITH THE

SELLER.

MY CALLS TO AMAZON WERE NOT

RETURNED.

SO WHY SUCH A STRONG AND

EMOTIONAL REACTION TO THE

STICKER?

FEDDERMAN WAS BORN IN BRAZIL

AND MOVED WITH HER FAMILY TO

NEW YORK CITY WHEN SHE WAS JUST

7 YEARS OLD.

FOR A TIME, THEY WERE ALL

UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS.

EVERY KNOCK AT THE DOOR WAS

TERRIFYING BECAUSE AT ANY

MOMENT OUR FAMILY COULD HAVE

BEEN DEPORTED AND YOU KNOW, WE

LIVED IN FEAR FOR A REALLY LONG

TIME.

DO YOU THINK YOU MADE A

DIFFERENCE BY CONTACTING

AMAZON?

AND I THINK -- I'M SURE

THERE'S GOING TO BE OTHER PLACE

THAT IS SELL IT, RIGHT?

BUT I THINK -- I TEACH MY

CHILDREN IF YOU SEE SOMETHING,

DO SOMETHING.

AND YOU KNOW, HOW CAN I TEACH

THEM THAT IF I DON'T ACT WHEN

I'M IN THE PRESENCE OF AN

INJUSTICE?
