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.
Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra Runs Cover for Violent Dallas Rioters, Deletes Tweet
He’s yet to apologize.
The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra appeared to suggest that a Dallas man who sought to defend himself against riotous looters intiated a violent incident that left him severely injured and almost killed.
Saavedra claimed that those sharing video of a savage beating in which the unnamed Dallas man was brutally beaten by looters- while already being disabled and in a prone position- weren’t sharing the full story. As if video of a large crowd of men forcefully kicking and stomping on the man wasn’t evidence enough of their maliciousness.

The Ben Shapiro-linked reporter claimed that the video wasn’t telling the full story.
The rioters, who were supposedly victimized by the sword-wielding man, go on to chant “get his a**! Get his a**!”
The so-called conservative reporter demanded that video of one of the most brutal crimes that looters have committed during the national wave of violence they’ve inflicted should be removed from the internet. On a totally erroneous basis, too- the extended video of the interaction between the man, who sources describe as defending his business from the property damage being inflicted by rioters in downtown Dallas, showed the crowd of men throwing rocks at him. He had armed himself with a sword, but there isn’t any reason to believe he was using it aggressively or in any unlawfully fashion before being attacked with a hail of rocks by riotous looters.
Here’s the beginning of the horrific attack on a man in Dallas from earlier.

Perhaps after seeing the full video that he suggested would vindicate the rioters of viciously beating a downed man in an utterly dishonorable fashion that could’ve killed him, Saavedra finally deleted his tweet demanding that those sharing video of the beating delete it.
However, as of early Sunday morning, he’s yet to provide any serious apology, explanation or clarification on his Twitter feed for his utterly uninformed and censorious instincts. Video of a man being brutally beaten while he’s subdued on the ground is evidence enough to condemn riotous looters, but the Daily Wire’s reporter first instinct appears to be to vindicate them.
