Gillette Sales Plummet After Offending with "Toxic Masculinity" Ad

Gillette Sales Plummet After Offending with "Toxic Masculinity" Ad
6 Comments

Sales Executives with MBA's at Gillette are learning a very hard lesson that most High School kids already knew: Don't piss-off your customers.  

That is exactly what Gillette did when they came out with an ad about "Toxic Masculinity."   That somehow men being men, and boys being boys is a bad thing.   Guys didn't like what they heard; so they're apparently not buying Gillette products as indicated by the totally unscientific empirical evidence in the photo above.

Looks like guys are going for Barbisol and Schick instead.

Once again, the college educated "experts" turn out to be social, cultural, and political morons!   

It seems to happen a lot lately.  Take the 2016 presidential election as a good example.  The college educated voted in droves for the broomstick witch, and lost.  They've been throwing a collective temper tantrum ever since.  Again, the college educated proved to be political, social and cultural morons.

What the college "educated" cannot seem to grasp is that they have NOT been "educated."  They've been indoctrinated.  Brain-washed.

Colleges today do not seem to teach student HOW to think critically, instead they teach them WHAT to think.

Kids graduate from these schools repeating what they were told rather than thinking for themselves.   And when their protected, snowflake, safe-space, indoctrination runs up against cold, hard, reality, they freak out because they're unable to think critically for themselves.

Gillette Stock Holders had better step-up fast and put a rhetorical dagger in the heart of this Toxic Masculinity ad campaign before the marketplace puts a rhetorical dagger in the heart of Gillette's sales.

    In my opinion it's too early to tell. However, I'll be one of those not buying their stuff any more. I'll use up what I have, since that's already paid for.

    I have watched with dismay over my lifetime as the age to begin State indoctrination dropped, and the age to leave it increased.
    From 5 - 14 to 3 to mostly 21. And they wonder why there is a catastrophe with an ageing population.

      I'm reminded by your observation that I was frying eggs and bacon on the stove when I had to stand on a step stool to do it. I learned to be careful and not burn the house down. Teen agers now can't even use an electric stove let alone a gas range. Sad,

    I understand all GILLETTE razors now come with a testicle trimmer and castration bander.

    Imagine, if Obama was still president, he very well might have forced the purchase of Gillette under the forced medical care...calling them mandatory 'medical devices'.

    How is it that businessmen and women have forgotten that consumers have mobility and product-equivalent options? An unhappy consumer has a super-good memory when it comes to bad experiences (especially when the product or service provider has mistreated the customer and injured them in malicious ways without cause.)

    College...how's that working out for you Madison-Avenue, cubicle-clutching, self-aggrandizing, politically-correct imbeciles? America loathes the whole lot of you snooty out-of-touch office types.
