THE MARKETING OF BLOOD

As you may have heard Albania was struck by a 6.3 earthquake early morning of November 26, leaving behind 51 casualties, hundreds injured and thousands of people homeless.

Amid being in continuous panic and fear for life from the aftershocks, something very disturbing caught my attention in social media and this is the reason I am taking this opportunity to get it out in the public and eventually seek justice.

In the morning of the following day, exactly November 27 while there were still unrecovered corpses from the rubles of destroyed buildings, the marketing team of the official Instagram page of Mercedes Benz posted 10 photo/video collages in their stories section, promoting their new model's campaign which they had shot in Albania.

At first, I thought they were promoting that specific campaign to raise awareness for that catastrophic event by publishing a donation page or a donated amount to help with the earthquake relief but that wasn't it.

Although the first 9 posted stories might have seemed unethical and inconsiderate, what disturbed me was the 10th post which had a location tag of Albania.

That's what made realize that they were trying to unethically gain insights and attention by benefiting from Instagram's algorithms since thousands of people were posting and tagging Albania in their pages.

This behavior is considered a corporate crime, for which if we had the needed support we would sue Daimler AG & Mercedes Benz for general damages and punitive damage.

In desperation, I have since contacted several German law firms to initiate a case against them but surprisingly every one of them had their schedules full and couldn't take on new cases.

Mercedes Benz had the scrutiny to take advantage of this tragic event and profit even that not directly.

Their hands have blood on them, so they should immediately release a press statement to apologize and offer considerable financial compensation otherwise      We will not stand down until justice has been served.
