A leaked email allegedly sent by Hanley King, the President of Global Client Lead at Gillette’s parent company Proctor and Gamble, instructs employees not to discuss the new Gillette “Be a better man” advertisement on social media due to the controversy.
In the leaked email, King notes that the advertisement has stirred “a lot of debate” on social media, and then instructed P&G employees to refrain from participating.
“Whilst it may be tempting to weigh in on this debate, it is absolutely not something we should be doing,” King allegedly wrote, “Please don’t do so and make sure your people don’t either.”
The ad, which many decried for its anti-masculinity message and was called out by everyone from mainstream conservatives to YouTube sensation PewDiePie, is apparently a third rail topic for the company.
Apparently fearing some P&G employees may also dislike the Gillette ad, King noted “Your personal opinion is obviously your right BUT in this case P&G is publicly taking the stance that the Gillette ad worked in creating conversation,” he added, “We do not want to be seen taking an [sic] contra opinion.”
“No matter what we really think about the ad, it is a very sensitive topic at P&G and we don’t need to be publicly in this debate.”
The email also indicated that should the company not appear unified in its positive attitude toward the advertisement and its message, it could make it more difficult for the company to expand into new markets.
“Could you please make sure all members of your teams are aware of this,” the email concluded.
Big League Politics reached out to King to determine whether or not the email was actually sent by him or whether he has a comment on the communication, and did not receive an immediate response.
Parler CEO John Matze Forced to Flee Home Under Deluge of Left-Wing Terror Threats
Matze is suing Amazon for deplatforming Parler.
Parler CEO John Matze has been forced to flee his home and go into hiding after receiving an onslaught of left-wing death threats. Parler, a free speech social media platform, has been temporarily shut down in an extensive deplatforming campaign. Amazon promptly cut Parler’s access to its Web Services after the US Capitol riot earlier this month, cherry-picking examples of content that violate Parler’s terms of service and claiming the platform is being used for violent purposes.
Matze made the frank admission in a court filing for Parler’s lawsuit against Amazon, requesting that the court keep any disclosures about his personal life and location secret. Parler is currently suing Amazon in federal court for its immediate revocation of Parler’s hosting agreement, arguing that Amazon agreed to provide 30 days notice before any potential termination of Parler’s hosting, pursuant to the party’s original agreement.
Matze reveals that he’s been forced to leave his home and go into hiding with his family, citing Amazon Web Services’ “vilification” of his company.
Employees of Amazon have allegedly been threatened and harassed as well for shutting down Parler. The court filing in favor of redaction references these threats in requesting the court provide redaction of personal information to both sides.
“Both sides of this dispute have shown that their employees have suffered real harassment and threats—including, on both sides, death threats—owing to the charged nature of this litigation.
Parler therefore agrees with AWS that safety and security concerns justify the limited sealings requested here,” Parler requests in the Amazon lawsuit.
Parler’s administrators are still seeking to return the free speech social media platform to full operation, although it could take weeks to bring it back online. They may have learned a lesson about the futility of contracting hosting services with a Big Tech monopoly such as Amazon.
