For once... it would be interesting to see these fake virtue signaling companies go in the opposite direction.
Hire Chuck Norris... have him kick in the door... roundhouse a transgender kid in a wheelchair and say...
"Gillette... the best a person with testicles can get".
They should make a new add staring "Jessica" Yaniv using Gillette products to shave his/her balls.
I KNEW this would be a Tim Pool title. He can never accept reality on its face. He is a great journalist but he sits on the fence almost pathologically. Gillette is dying because they hate men, their primary customer. It's that simple. They attacked their primary customer and took a massive hit. Some shit is really simple.
This is the only time in history I've seen companies make willful decisions that hurt their bottom line. Normally they're ruthlessly profit drive to the exclusion of everything else including their long term survival. In this case they're foregoing their long term survival AND their profit now.
It's like a mind virus. In fact something like the islamic mind virus. Ruthless adherence to ideology in opposition to all reason.
Sooner or later someone has to recognize humanity is losing its mind and commission some kind of study. This can't be coincidental.
Thanks Gillette; I'm now a proud owner of a safety razor. 100 times manlier, a 10000 times cheaper.
You can't escape from #GetWokeGoBroke. Many of these companies have millions or billions to spare, so it's obvious that they won't go broke any time soon from their wokeness, but all of this means nothing bc they are pissing off their main demographic.
If you get woke, sooner or later, you go broke.
Y'know, when you have a company that gets woke in its advertising rather than its actual product (like a woke video game), I could see there being a pretty big delayed response before the actual financial impact just because it takes time for a company to become a meme.
It doesn't matter what advert they released after that, we will NEVER forgive them unless they grovelingly apologise and acknowledge publicly that they did wrong. I'm not going to buy Gillette products just because they make another advert that I don't hate. They incurred rage and rage doesn't just go away.
My full beard says: HAHA!
Real Men have beards.
Hey Tim if you were to shave regularly for a few years you would be able to grow a beard instead of that chicken scratching pad you have.
