Tomi Lahren Tried To Own SJWs By Slamming Gillette’s New Ad—And It Backfired Splendidly

Ultra-conservative commentator Tomi Lahren gave her caustic opinion on the Gillette ad controversy.

The Proctor and Gamble company unveiled an ad campaign knocking toxic masculinity with images of boys bullying boys and men harassing women, as a voice-over narrates, “We believe in the best in men to say the right thing, to act the right way.”

There was backlash over the ad from clueless conservatives who missed the point about Gillette’s raising awareness about the implications of men’s behavior and the accountability of their indiscretions.

But the acid-tongued Lahren criticized the ad during a segment on Fox Nation for its apparent “double standard,” arguing that women are just as capable of “toxic femininity” but pass it off as “female empowerment.”

“I, like so many of you watching, am so sick and tired of this virtue-signaling, man-bashing exaggeration from companies looking to gain social points with liberals.”

She added:

“Now, I’m not calling for a boycott or for Americans to throw away their Gillette products. I think all of that is senseless, petty and silly.”

“But I have a feeling many men across the country might think twice when they walk down that razor aisle.”

She echoed her crummy thoughts on Twitter, calling the people supporting Gillette’s ad as “social justice warriors.”

Indy 100 mentioned that Lahren posted another tweet an hour before the one above, conceding that there are men who “think in their pants” but then argued that the ad would not correct “sick men” who are “playing with dolls” and “wearing makeup.”

As expected, the internet responded to her lousy remark and clobbered her for her comprehension skills, or lack thereof.

And speaking of women being just as capable of bullying, she was slammed for ridiculing women who are bullies when her track record shows her true colors.

The Gillette ad concluded with an encouraging twist on their decades-old slogan.

“It’s only by challenging ourselves to do more, that we can get closer to our best. The Best A Man Can Get.”

Yes, Lahren missed the point and went on a vile warpath by attacking the liberals, like she’s always done.

But if she were to comprehend the ad’s positive message, her little epiphany could have humanized her. Now that would have been a close shave.
