I have no idea what it is about. Is there more information about details of the violation (text, image, words,...)?

The design was not removed by Amazon and was still online, but I deleted the design after the mail as a precaution. But I have other shirts with the saying "i Hate people".

Shall i better delete all other shirts with "i hate people"?

Shall "Kamelot" be the owner of the right? Right of what? The image is created by AI. And I could not find a trademark for "I Hate People".

Is there a risk that my account will be deleted?

Thanks for your help.

Read the FAQs and Terms and Conditions. Hate speech - as defined by Amazon - is forbidden.
