Deal with it.
It wasn't a simple commercial and you know it. The commercial didn't happen in a vacuum. It happened in an era when it's toxic to be a male, and privileged to be a white male.

Fellas don't need, want or expect a bygone America. They just don't want to be preached to like children when they're grown men. And they don't want to be insulted and then expected to buy stuff from the condescending morons who just insulted them. It's not rocket science.

Maybe someday people will realize that YOU DO NOT MIX BUSINESS AND POLITICS!

(I'd love to shout this from the mountain top.)

I heard somewhere that Gillette pays something like 30-35 million $ to put their name on that stadium.

I used to buy Gillette razors and shave gel, exclusively. I now use Harry's razors.
Lol- me too. I got really tired of overpaying for blades for so long.

I know. Itís laughable.

Right wingers are usually kissing corporate ass as much as possible. Donít know why theyíre acting brand new all of a sudden.

The overarching message of the commercial was treat women nice and donít be a goddamn pig.

Thatís it. Nothing more. Now what the hell is making you so butthurt as it appertains to that? SMH

You didn't bother reading the article you attached did you?

The article mentions that the declines started years ago and well before the idiotic "Woke" advertising.

Woke and broke! Hope it was worth it to Gillette. Will never buy their products ever again. Keep it up SJW companies. You make shopping easy!

Read what they post? No, they are headline readers only.

That commercial was so terribly political. I rewatched it earlier today and it basically lowkey slams men, in general.

Whoever green-lit this awful commercial idea, that Grey created for them, just contributed to a $5 billion loss, and Gillette is not getting the customers back, ever.

Yes, indeed. It's an America where Gillette, as a corporate entity, is now worth $8 billion less than Procter & Gamble paid for it. And that $8 billion ain't coming back.

Heh, heh...heh, heh...

Well, we incurred way more debt than that this year alone. So if Gillette were American..... they would be bankrupt.
