Top 10 Reactions to Gillette's Anti-Masculinity Advertisement
These days, a man can't even scrape the hair off his face without enduring a political lecture from the left. Just ask the Gillette razor company. They put out an ad calling for the havers of peens to let go of their toxic masculinity and embrace their feminine side. It ain't going over so well.
Here's a little sampling of the reactions to the ad:
Hey @Gillette, I have an idea, stay out of politics. Real men already stop other guys from acting badly. A razor… https://t.co/3zlhrbpV7N— Joe Pags Pagliarulo (@Joe Pags Pagliarulo) 1547516746.0
This guy makes a good point. I don't really know any guys who are gonna stand by and cheer on a rapist as he has his way with unwilling frauleins.
@Gillette Massive FAIL. Get in the bin, you virtue signalling dolts. https://t.co/r0EoBOghpN— Rita Panahi (@Rita Panahi) 1547503340.0
It would seem Gillette thought all the bros would take kindly to the ad. Alas, the reaction was the complete opposite. Maybe now, they'll forget about scoring political points and focus on the important stuff. Like how best to convince men they need a seventh blade on their overpriced razor.
Pardon me for just a moment.
Even though this is parody, "Titania" makes a good point. I mean, was Gillette expecting to tap into the feminist market with their anti-masculinity? This isn't a demographic known for their impeccable personal hygiene.
@SigynX @Gillette Thank you, LOVE your comment. Not all men are monsters and @Gillette has effectively demonized an… https://t.co/XeLgq0ZlnN— 𝐍𝐢𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐞 ♡ (@𝐍𝐢𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐞 ♡) 1547492563.0
More importantly, they're attacking their own base. I guess the guy at the ad agency missed the lesson about not taking a dump on the people you want to buy your stuff.
They say Gillette is the best a man can get but who are they to assume his gender?— Dave Rubin (@Dave Rubin) 1547517613.0
The Rubinator's right. If we're going by the natural progression of political correctness, it won't be long before "the best a man can get" is problematic. "The best a gender nondescript mammalian creature can get" doesn't really have the same ring to it.
I've used @Gillette razors my entire adult life but this absurd virtue-signalling PC guff may drive me away to a co… https://t.co/A6yIkjwi7Q— Piers Morgan (@Piers Morgan) 1547493177.0
Yep, if Gillette keeps this up, they can kiss their fanbase bye-bye.
the only ones lauding the Gillette ad work in media/advertising. everyone else sees it for what it is: a smarmy, co… https://t.co/FwwIraR7sY— GregGutfeld (@GregGutfeld) 1547519667.0
What we've got here is elitist douchenozzles implying men are a bunch of wife-beating rapists. Not exactly the best stance to take when you're trying to boost sales.
Dear @Gillette, check out the Like-to-Dislike ratio of your virtue signalling. Let me know if you'd like to hire me… https://t.co/EEYyMCXRe0— Gad Saad (@Gad Saad) 1547515597.0
Yep, the dislikes outnumber the likes ten-to-one. I haven't seen a ratio like this since those feminist Hollywood types got together and tried cosplaying as Ghostbusters.
I saved the best one for last:
Welcome to the Club.— Dollar Shave Club (@Dollar Shave Club) 1547499472.0
This one is absolute perfection because it highlights an important truth. If you really wanna stick it to a douchetastic company, capitalism is the best revenge. Take your greenbacks and spend them elsewhere. Pretty soon, if enough people do the same, the problem company will either change or fold. That, my friends, is what makes America the best.
