Shaving razor company Gillette has suffered from a considerable sales downturn after a controversial series of ads that seemed to lecture men on supposed problems with their behavior broadly. Their CEO, Gary Coombe, doesn’t seem to care, explaining that he sees the ad campaign as a worthy endeavor even if it meant costing Gillette customers.
Gillette released the first in a series of ads in January, featuring a lengthy lecture directed to men broadly for supposed “toxic” behaviors. The appropriateness of a men’s hygiene company adopting stale liberal feminist talking points was questioned by many traditional Gillette customers, who ultimately decided to take their business elsewhere.
Gillette’s parent company’s president, in what was perhaps an observation that other company executives ignored, tried to prevent employees from discussing the widely mocked ad. The ad, titled ‘The Best Men Can Be,’ has become one of the most-disliked videos in the history of YouTube, with a whopping 1.5 million viewers pressing the thumbs down button.
The experience seems to have hit Gillette where it hurts the most for any multinational corporation- the company’s wallet. Coombe has admitted the company has been forced to write off a massive $8 billion in revenue, but refuses to acknowledge that the preachy and sanctimonious feminist propaganda campaign was a mistake.
As Gillette continues to lose more and more business to competitors such as Dollar Shave Club, the company’s leadership appears set to double down on pandering to irrelevant and anti-male social justice obsessives.
Ultimately, the company won’t be missed by the millions of overwhelmingly decent and moral men who’ve chosen to take their business elsewhere when it’s forced into liquidation.

President Trump Rejects Paying For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Private Security
The royal celebrities will foot the bill.
President Trump made it clear on a Sunday tweet that British royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have to pay for their own security costs upon moving full-time to the United States, clarifying that they wouldn’t receive federal security under an existing arrangement that covers British royals temporarily visiting the US.
I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!

The royal celebrities have distanced themselves from the Queen, apparently viewing themselves as victims of relentless paparazzi and media attention.
Harry and Markle initially moved to Canada after resigning from the royal family, but they’ve recently moved to Hollywood just before the Canadian border was closed to nonessential travel due to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. The elitist couple apparently plans on reinventing themselves as American-style celebrities, and have hired a small army of media consultants and public relations agents to market their image.
When information of their move to Los Angeles became public knowledge, many began to speculate if they’d recieve taxpayer-funded security in a manner akin to British royals visiting the United States on official state vists. President Trump’s Sunday tweet appears to eliminate that possibility.
The thirteen colonies that became the United States rebelled against the yoke of the British monarchy for a reason. President Trump’s decision to cut off the wannabee celebrities from publicly-funded security is a deeply American decision. The UK’s monarchy is one of the wealthiest legacy institutions in the western world, and it would be absurd to imagine that it can’t afford to hire private security for the ‘former’ royals, who are set to fully renounce their royal obligations at the end of the month.
