Companies Using Social Movements to Sell Products

Gillette is pushing its new razors — with a new ad on toxic masculinity?🤔 It's not the first time corporations have used/hijacked social movements to market products.

    As far as trends go, I think it's good for awareness as long as it's done in good taste. The pepsi one is HORRIBLE.

    They’re a company. Like yours. They sell things. We know that. They want to sell more things. We know that too. I for one prefer seeing people and companies do the right thing even if not for the best of reasons than to not do it. The effect of a mainstream company which deals in a core facet of “manliness,” grooming, bringing this topic up to men, rather than leaving it on the edges of male perspective as some “feminist issue,” is inestimable. Bravo Gillette. I hope they sell a million fucking razors.

    Just another way to "Dismiss" the struggles of the movement, while playing them for your own profits! Nothing has changed! Still " USING" the pain of others to profit yourself!

    The unfortunate thing is most of these discussions should be conducted at home! We as a planet rely too much on television, radio, movies, music, books and magazines to teach us how to be decent human being! Our parents or parent should be teaching us respect for everyone, regardless of what we look like or talk like! We have lost this, so social media is filled with messages, good and bad! Too many people are lost on what is right! We all need to look in the mirror and figure out how to stop HATING!

    Gillette and Nike killed their consumer base with their bullshit. Kaepernick disrespected the entire nation, all our veterans, and everyone who fought and died for our freedom but he didn't seem to care about black on black crime. The Gillette commercial was so offensive to men saying we are all rapists and are just now learning that its wrong.

    That Pepsi one was horrible because they stole that from a actual black girl who was in the street facing a cop

    No one wants to lectured to about PC bullshit! Especially from some dumb flipping college snow flakes. Sorry corporate will soon learn you don’t insult your customers!

    To everyone who currently has a Gillette: don’t throw it out yet. Use it until the blade gets dull and then buy a new one with a different company. It’s really dumb to throw away a perfectly good razor when your beard doesn’t give away what brand of razor you use 😂
