Some people also pointed to the hat’s ill-fit on Bezos’ 5-foot-7-inch frame. According to Bill Reynolds, co-author of “The Cowboy Hat Book,” hats with big brims can make shorter people “look like a sprinkler head.” [firefly_poll] The internet was not kind to the billionaire and his fiancée. “[T]his is a really weird look. Costume-y,” one X user wrote.
Jeff Bezos wore a cowboy hat again. Real cowboys are rolling their eyes👇“Billionaire’s look compared to ‘a sprinkler head’ after he wears getup in a Vogue feature with his fiancee”https://t.co/kQMywrN6Jk — Vega4141 (@19__north) November 19, 2023
Another tweet compared the owner of the Washington Post to a “Make-a-Wish kid in a rodeo.”

Apparently, slapping on a Stetson and standing on some Texas dirt doesn’t make you John Wayne. If Bezos was trying to portray a more man-of-the-people type image, no one was buying it. Entrepreneur magazine described Bezos as a “visionary, an entrepreneur, a cutthroat competitor and a game changer.” Attempting to look like a ranch hand seems like an over-the-top attempt at rebranding his image.
I want to make fun of bezos’s Dukakis tank helmet cowboy hat but he looks so sad and pathetic like a Make-a-Wish kid in a rodeo. You just know he looks in the mirror and despite all his trt muscles sees the same light bulb headed guy he started out as. pic.twitter.com/6dVnsi04xj— Bronx Age Mindset (@dipiombo) November 14, 2023
