PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - A Twitter campaign by Pennsylvania's second lady caught the attention of Amazon.

 An anti-immigrant bumper sticker was removed from the platform after Gisele Fetterman tweeted a photo of it, challenging the e-commerce giant to reconsider their power and influence.

The sticker says "F*** Off, We're Full" in the shape of the United States.

Fetterman, a former undocumented immigrant, tells KDKA Radio's Lynne Hayes-Freeland she believes in expressing beliefs:

“But that was just something that was so hate filled,” said Fetterman. “To me that was borderline hate speech, seeing something like that in a car and to think that someone was proud to display that, was really kind of shocking to me,” said Fetterman.

Fetterman adds that she doesn’t believe that kind of language and message should be seen my children.

“It was really sad for me to think that children would read that and think that this is a hateful place to be in, it doesn’t inspire pride, to see something like that.”

Fetterman says that it is a small step forward but shows how much power one person can have.
