Amazon has suppressed a number of negative reviews of Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly’s new memoir.

The Los Angeles Times reports more than 100 negative reviews of Kelly’s “Settle For More” appeared on the online retail giant’s site within hours of its release November 15. The newspaper reports many of the comments came from a link from a pro-Trump Reddit forum.

Seattle-based Amazon removed some reviews from users it couldn’t verify had purchased the book.

Company spokesperson Angie Newman says in a statement that “Amazon Customer Reviews must be product reviews and are designed to help customers make purchase decisions”.

Kelly and Republican President-elect Donald Trump had a contentious relationship during the campaign.

Publisher HarperCollins tells the Times it alerted Amazon to the reviews.
