Top YouTube creator PewDiePie slammed Gillette today for its new anti-masculinity ad in his latest episode of Pew News, lambasting the company for singling out men, and making fun of the media’s response.
PewDiePie watched and reviewed the latest ad from Gillette in his latest episode of Pew News, telling viewers it “blows my mind that they actually thought this was a good idea.”
“Who doesn’t like to have their moral compass defined to them by a shaving company?” the YouTuber opined while watching the video, continuing that he was hard pressed to identify some of the “toxic” male behavior showcased in the video, “Maybe I’m part of the problem, I don’t get what the issue is here.”
“Watching this video, it doesn’t piss me off. I don’t really care that much. I just think it’s cringe worthy, that’s what it is,” said PewDiePie, “Why is Gillette trying to tell me, or trying to tell everyone, that guys are a problem? Literally putting all guys that are problematic in the same category. Why not focus on something positive instead?”
The YouTuber also criticized the media’s response to the video, focusing on The Guardian, which framed all criticism of the video as “abuse” in an article.
“I really, really appreciate the Guaridan’s title on this. It doesn’t show any bias at all. ‘Gillette #MeToo ad on ‘toxic masculinity’ gets praise – and abuse'”, he laughed, “That seems like such a fair assessment, you know. No it doesn’t!”
“I like how they didn’t call it criticism. It’s just abuse. Everyone that dislikes this video? Abuse. This poor brand, this poor multi million dollar brand, is getting abuse.”
PewDiePie concluded that this was essentially a financial decision by Gillette, and expressed doubt as to whether or not it would prove successful.
“At the end of the day Gillette’s goal is to sell products. You know that their goal behind this video was to do exactly that,” he said, “Again, it’s so cringey that they’re trying to put up this message to sell more products.”
The shaving company’s new ad has proven to be extremely unpopular, leading some companies to take the opposite approach. The CEO of luxury watch manufacturer Ergard Watches released a passionate video celebrating the achievements of men, and taking time to identify the shockingly high workplace fatality, suicide, and homeless rates among the male population.

San Francisco Dumps Environmentalism, Bans Reusable Bags at Grocery Stores During Coronavirus Pandemic
Environmentalism is thrown by the wayside during a crisis.
The ultra left-wing city of San Francisco, Calif. is bailing on environmentalism during a time of great crisis, banning the use of reusable plastic bags at grocery stores temporarily due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus.
The San Francisco Department of Public Health has issued an ordinance preventing city residents from taking reusable items into the public and using them in essential stores. They believe this will make it more difficult for germs to proliferate throughout the city.
“There is no effective treatment or cure yet for the disease, testing ability while improving remains constrained, and San Francisco’s health care system is at ongoing risk of being overwhelmed. For these reasons, it is imperative that San Francisco not only extend the duration of its stay at home order but also further limit essential activities and extend social distancing requirements outside the home,” the ordinance reads.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed has not hesitated to shut down civil society in order to combat the spread of coronavirus. She has effectively tossed environmentalism to the wayside, showing that the frequent leftist bugaboo is not actually a pressing concern.
“I can’t reiterate enough how important it is for all of us to continue to comply, for all of us to continue to be good citizens, to cooperate,” said Breed, who has issued lockdown edicts that last until at least May 3.
Today we officially extended the stay at home health order through May 3. I want to thank the people of San Francisco for continuing to do their part to save lives. I know this isn’t easy but we will get through it together. pic.twitter.com/4rggISBnQv

In 2007, San Francisco was the first city in America to ban the use of plastic shopping bags. The leftists on the Board of Supervisors enacted this prohibition to satisfy Mother Earth and potentially start a trend throughout the country.
“I am astounded and surprised by the worldwide attention,” Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi said at the time, according to the SFGate. “Hopefully, other cities and other states will follow suit.”
The grocery store lobby in the state came out against the regulation at the time, believing that it would accomplish little to help the environment and only serve to frustrate consumers.
“We’re disappointed that the Board of Supervisors is going down this path,” said Kristin Power, who worked as the vice president of government relations for the California Grocers Association.
“It will frustrate recycling efforts and will increase both consumer and retailer costs. There’s also a real concern about the availability and quality of compostable bags,” she added.
By instituting their emergency measures, San Francisco has demonstrated that environmental concerns are not particularly important in the grand scheme of things. These lofty goals are put on the back burner when a real crisis, such as the coronavirus panic, takes precedence.
