Gillette Sales Decline Following ‘Toxic Masculinity’ Ad

Get woke, go broke.

Published

on

Following their much maligned ‘toxic masculinity’ ad, Gillette has become one of the weakest performing Proctor & Gamble products, with sales continuing to decline.

Get woke, go broke.

The ad, entitled ‘We Believe’, was released in January. It asked men to “shave their toxic masculinity,” while blaming an entire gender for the actions of a small percentage of sexual abusers, rapists and perverts.

The commercial alternated between echoing glib feminist talking points and bashing men, while also featuring a clip from left-wing news outlet The Young Turks.

The commercial was so despised, it went on to become one of the most hated ads in Internet history.

Now the company is feeling the backlash where it hurts.

“Proctor & Gamble are experiencing better than expected profits in every area…except the male grooming products section of Gillette, and few people should be surprised,” writes Brandon Morse.

He cites a MarketWatch piece which explains; “That raises the question of whether Gillette’s financial results are suffering because of its toxic-masculinity misfire. On Tuesday, Procter & Gamble (PG) beat earnings and revenue forecasts, but the stock fell 3% on a day the S&P 500 closed at a new high.”

“The good news is that sales grew 5% organically—that is, without help from acquisitions or currency exchange—whereas the Street was looking for 3.7%. Products for skin, fabrics, and home led the way. But sales of grooming products, including Gillette, slipped 1%, continuing a long string of declines.”

Normally, virtue signaling ends up being profitable for corporations because it generates tens of millions of dollars in free advertising.

But the Gillette ad was so bad, it seems that not even that will be enough to make up the shortfall.

Ari Shaffir on Kobe Bryant’s Death: “Hollywood Liberals Enjoy Rooting For the Lakers More Than They Dislike Rape”

Comedian’s comments spark outrage.

Published

Comedian Ari Shaffir has stoked controversy after he reacted to the death of Kobe Bryant by tweeting, “Hollywood liberals who attack comedy enjoy rooting for the Lakers more than they dislike rape.”

Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter were among nine people tragically killed when a helicopter crashed in California in foggy weather yesterday.

While most people responded by celebrating Bryant’s basketball career, Shaffir took to Twitter to call out “Hollywood liberals” for glamorizing Bryant despite allegations that he raped a 19-year-old girl.

The 19-year-old hotel employee claimed Bryant raped her in the summer of 2003 but the case was later dropped after the accuser refused to testify at the trial.

Bryant apologized to the girl but said he believed the encounter to be consensual and later settled with her in a separate civil lawsuit.

“Kobe Bryant died 23 years too late today,” tweeted Shaffir. “He got away with rape because all the Hollywood liberals who attack comedy enjoy rooting for the Lakers more than they dislike rape. Big ups to the hero who forgot to gas up his chopper. I hate the Lakers. What a great day! #Fuckthelakers.”

In a separate video, Shaffir stated, “A guy who got away with rape got his today, Kobe Bryant is gone!”

The comedian’s comments provoked the fury of others on Twitter.

“He’s got 4 kids man. It’s one thing to go dark if it’s genuinely funny, but this is just horrible. Like honestly how little empathy do you have?” asked one.

“That rape allegation never added up to anything, kinda like your shit comedy career,” added another.

“I’m a conservative, and this is too far, even for you. I hope you never get another gig. You’re a terrible person,” tweeted another.

However, Shaffir was by no means alone in the manner of his response. Numerous other prominent Twitter personalities and commentators reacted to Bryant’s death by bringing up the rape allegations against him.

Shaffir later claimed “I was hacked,” in what was obviously a sarcastic tweet.

Conor McGregor Attacked by ‘Woke’ Outrage Mob For Calling Trump “Phenomenal”

How dare he?

Published

on

Conor McGregor was savaged by the ‘woke’ Twitter outrage mob after he dared to say that President Trump was doing a “phenomenal” job.

“Phenomenal President. Quite possibly the USA (goat). Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy feet. Early stages of term also. Incredible,” tweeted the MMA star.

Fresh off his 40 second victory over Donald Cerrone, McGregor faced significantly stiffer opposition from Twitter’s perpetually outraged army of witchfinder generals, who tore into him for, God forbid, expressing diversity of opinion.

“Just got off the McGregor bus, I was a huge fan until this tweet, I’m sure this will cost you more fans than any fight you lose,” tweeted one person with the user name ‘flush the orange turd’.

A deluge of other “Orange Man Bad!” simpletons weighed in with their own entirely predictable NPC comments.

“These are the words of a man who has been hit in the head many, many, many times,” said one blue check mark.

“Please tell me you got fookin hacked,” added another.

Another person accused both Trump and McGregor of being…wait for it…”racists”. An incredibly novel insight, I’m sure you’ll agree.

“Told y’all this guy Conor was a racist during the Mayweather promotion tour,” tweeted another. “Those monkey comments came from his soul/core!”

Despite the criticism, there were many other tweets in praise of McGregor.
