Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man, and three crewmates soared high above the Texas desert in his space venture Blue Origin’s New Shepard launch vehicle on Tuesday, a historical flight that hopes to inaugurate a new era of private commercial space tourism.

“Billionaires should not exist…on earth, or in space, but should they decide the latter, they should stay there,” mentioned the petition. More than 20,000 people also signed another petition, which is similarly titled “Petition To Not Allow Jeff Bezos Re-Entry To Earth.”

Former world number 5 active on Twitter

The Canadian star burst into laughter after seeing the New York Post article, quoting the article and tweeting “This is killing Me!!!!!!! You Guys.”

The article is that of 165,000+ people petitioning for Jeff Bezos to stay in space and not be allowed to come back to earth. The Amazon founder recently came under fire saying that it was his Amazon employees who actually paid for his trip. “I want to thank every Amazon employee, and every Amazon customer because you guys paid for all this,” the 57-year-old Bezos said during a news conference regarding his 11-minute flight to space. He became the second billionaire to do so, after Richard Branson completed the journey too last week.

Bouchard has been active in Twitter recently, as she agreed with Stefanos Tsitsipas‘ comments regarding on-court coaching and how it should be legalized.

Some even poked fun at the repurcussions she might face due to the tweet…

Not so active on the court

The 27-year-old Canadian, however, hasn’t been as active on court, having played only 9 matches in 2021 and having a 5-4 record in them. This is far from what her level used to be, when she finished Runner up to Czech international Petra Kvitova in the 2014 Wimbledon championships. Bouchard also reached the semifinals of the 2014 Australian Open and 2014 French Open. She has now dropped down to 129 in the WTA rankings after being a career high 5th in 2014.
