Razor maker Gillette’s words cut deep into the feelings of some customers, who felt the message of its new ‘The Best Men Can Be’ campaign, fronted by its ‘We Believe’ advert, was too blunt. The campaign addresses the ‘#MeToo’ movement, bullying, and the “boys will be boys” ideology, as well as urges men to be role models for the next generation.
It’s evidently not easy to tackle all these issues in one campaign, so many long-term customers felt as if Gillette was labeling all tiers of masculinity as toxic. As such, some consumers have threatened to boycott the brand by discarding their razors and shaving gels.
Cue this guy, who was emboldened to throw his razor in the toilet. Twitter user ‘warroom’ expressed his defiance by posting a picture suggesting that he had dumped his Gillette razor in his bathroom’s throne.
“Goodbye, Gillette. Hello, Schtick,” the user wrote. To him, it would be a royal flush that ought to send Gillette quivering.
The brazen move was questioned by other social media users, who pointed out that his next course of action would be one of two things: he would either have to flush the razor down and clog up his toilet, or fish the object out of the water with his hand.
“My man here ruining his plumbing because a commercial suggested that maybe he should be nicer,” tweeted ‘porcelain72’.
“Nothing says ‘owning the libs’ like taking a picture of your reflection in the toilet,” commented Mashable reporter Matt Binder.
The anti-Gillette warrior later assured everyone that he wasn’t “dumb enough to try to actually flush” his razor-riddled toilet, which probably meant that he chose the option of scooping the item out of the water.

The best thing about this — and it’s a long list from which to choose — is that this dingdong definitely realized at some point that he can’t flush a razor, so he had to stick his own hand into his own toilet water to fish it out. https://t.co/Og8YVLSMEP— Ken Tremendous (@KenTremendous) January 16, 2019

Just admit you were shaving your rectum and dropped yet another razor into the toilet— Ned Pyle (@NerdPyle) January 16, 2019
PLUMBER: So your pipes were clogged with Gillette razors, Nike socks, and Keurig K-cups. Does your son by any chance like to—— Jason O. Gilbert (@gilbertjasono) January 16, 2019
MOM: He likes to own the libs, yes.
If you REALLY believe I’d be dumb enough to try to actually flush, you’re dumber than you think I am #GilletteAd— warroom (@warroom) January 16, 2019
