“Nobody has eaten the mona lisa and we feel jeff bezos needs to take a stand and make this happen,” the joke petition that went up a year ago on Change.org and gained hundreds of signers Thursday reads.
“gobble da lisa,” one signer wrote while another joked, “I feel like this is something society needs… Jeff, we need you to make this sacrifice for society.”
The Mona Lisa is owned by the French government and is on permanent display at the Louvre museum in Paris.
Bezos, who is one of the richest men in the world and became the first man to top $200 billion in net worth this year, seems to have no immediate plans to ingest art but is planning an 11-minute trip to space on his company Blue Origin’s first crewed flight scheduled for July 20.
