Protesters have set up an artificial guillotine outside of Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos' Washington, D.C., home with a message reading, "Support our poor communities. Not our wealthy men."

A video circulating on social media shows two protesters standing in front of the guillotine, one of who called out over a megaphone, "When they become threatened, and we have no voice, the knives come out."

Bezos' primary residence is in the state of Washington, where he founded the online retail company Amazon in 1994. He is currently the richest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of more than $100 billion.

A digital flyer posted on Twitter from the account "abolish the present/reconstruct our future" advertised the event at Bezos' home Sunday evening from 4 to 8 p.m.
