Gillette, the #1 razor company in the nation, released a Social Justice ad decrying “toxic masculinity”. Fox News reports:
Gillette’s new commercial might not be as cutting-edge as the company had hoped.
It’s only been a day since Gillette debuted its “We Believe” campaign aimed at combating “toxic masculinity,” and while the ad has earned plenty of praise – and even more publicity – for the brand, critics of the ad are already upset with Gillette for what some feel is an “insulting” message that assumes misogyny is rampant among their customer base.Others took issue with the company for using a social movement to sell razors, and suggesting that Gillette, which also markets the Venus line aimed at female customers, is being hypocritical.
The ad, which debuted Monday, begins with “a compilation of actions commonly associated with ‘toxic masculinity,'” per a press release — actions including online bullying, men laughing at misogynistic television shows, or a boss mansplaining his female colleague’s idea, among others.
This caricature of men has been taken as a huge insult by many on the online community, with over four times as much negative reactions to the video itself. It remains to be seen if Gillette will see sales drop.
Military Men belong to the structured people Yesterday, today and tomorrow and I don’t see how any one can see them as leftist. These people need a publicity firm they can believe in! Too many bacteria FILLED MAN FACES NEED TO GO BARE! Sick of the lazy, dirty, slouchy “Macho” men. Lining the streets like sheep! GO! Put that in an AD! If you can’t, I know I can!
For 52 years I have shaved with Gillette. I am now a Schick man or some other. Gillette may as well start pedaling only pink razors for all the girly-men they want to create. That or go into the female hormone business.
What could the execs at Gillette be thinking with this absurd ad? Or maybe they were “not” thinking? I will definitely
boycott all Gillette products from this day forward!
Liberalism truly is a mental disease and Gillette must be
completely infected. Why would they want to alienate at least half of their customers???
