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.

Harvard Law School Planning Conference to Smear and Silence Homeschoolers
It seems doubtful the conference will feature parents’ rights advocates.
Harvard Law School is planning a conference on the topic of homeschooling, with speakers and content of the tenative June summit suggesting the event will be very negative towards the practice.
The Homeschooling Summit: Problems, Politics, and Prospects for Reform is planned for June 18-19th. The conference listing states that a focus of the conference will be to “discuss child rights in connection with homeschooling in the United States.”
Further investigation of the conference’s premise suggests it’s outright hostile to the notion of homeschooling entirely. One event scheduled for the second day of the conference is entitled “Concerns with Homeschooling.”
The Home School Legal Defense Association questioned what seemed to be the outright hostility to homeschooling that will be part of the event, pointing out the concerning public statements of some of the educators participating in the summit.
The pro-homeschooling rights group highlighted the anti-homeschooling track records of the event’s speakers.
Some, such as College of William and Mary law professor James Dwyer, have fundamentally questioned the rights of parents to homeschool their children. Dwyer has argued in law review article that “the claim that parents should have child-rearing rights—rather than simply being permitted to perform parental duties and to make certain decisions on a child’s behalf in accordance with the child’s rights—is inconsistent with principles deeply embedded in our law and morality.”
It almost seems anachronistic that the fixings of elite cultural liberalism are maintaining themselves in the midst of the national Chinese coronavirus epidemic, an event that has actually forced the American public and policy makers to focus on things that matter. This anti-homeschooling summit might end up being cancelled because of the coronavirus epidemic. But it any case, Harvard Law’s academic elites seem intent to question the rights of homeschoolers either way.
